CSK led by MS Dhoni have arrived in Lucknow to play against Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL 2023 match no. 45. Despite having a positive net run rate and being in the top four of the table with 10 points, CSK are facing challenges in gathering a strong bowling attack due to injured stars and newbies leaking away too many runs.
LSG, on the other hand, suffered a setback with captain KL Rahul being ruled out of the tournament due to injury. Although they suffered a close defeat in the previous game, they are in a better position on the table and will aim to rise higher with a win against CSK at home.
With Rahul out of the team due to injury, the management is faced with the challenge of finding a replacement captain for the remainder of the season. It is currently unknown who will lead the team against CSK in the upcoming match. However, it is probable that Krunal Pandya, who took charge of the team after Rahul’s injury in the last game, will continue to lead the side.
