IPL 2022 – Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings Match 7 Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more
The IPL is picking up pace and the next match on our hands will be played between the newcomers Lucknow Super Giants and 4-time titleholders Chennai Super Kings. Both the teams lost their first game of the season will be looking to get off the mark and begin their charge towards the title.
The Super Giants had raised enormous hopes even before the competition with the caliber of players they acquired in the auction, but they lost their opening game to the Gujarat Titans by five wickets in the final over. They had the majority of the match under control, but they leaked runs at the death, which worked against them. KL Rahul’s decision-making on the pitch needs to be more proactive if his team is to progress deep into the tournament.
Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, were not at their best in the tournament’s opening encounter, losing by six wickets to two-time winners Kolkata Knight Riders. They lost five wickets in 11 overs and subsequently a rescue act by former skipper MS Dhoni provided them with something to bowl at, but they were unable to defend the marginal total of 131. Moeen Ali, who was ineligible for the first game, is scheduled to return against the Super Giants.
The match is scheduled to take place on the 31st of March, 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.
Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings Match 7 – Pitch Report
It is during the mid-innings part of the game that teams will encounter numerous obstacles in order to score runs. The wicket is ideal for spinners, and it’s difficult to bat against them. On this surface, removing the pace from the ball will benefit the quick bowlers significantly.

Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings Match 7 – Players to Watch
The orange cap winner of last season was dismissed for a duck in the first game against the Kolkata Knight Riders. He is flamboyant with the bat and will be one of the main players who will score the big runs for his side, the Chennai Super Kings. We saw the Lucknow Super Giants were leaking runs in their bowling, and we expect Ruturaj to exploit this and get himself back into the Orange cap list.
His presence was missed in Chennai’s first game, but with the all-rounder set to return to action in this game, all eyes will be on him to create that impact in the middle of the order and also with the ball. Moeen has been a crucial player in MS Dhoni’s plans and we are sure that he will be utilized just as well by Ravindra Jadeja.
He was hailed as the hero of the Lucknow innings in the last game thanks to his heroics and brave stand with youngster Ayush Badoni. He showed the fans exactly what he brings to the table and how lethal he can be when he is in rhythm. The Chennai bowling attack is crafty and should the top order of Lucknow collapse again, the onus will be on Deepak to lead the fight back.
The Lucknow skipper lacked the sting in his batting and was dismissed very early in their game against Gujarat. He knows what he is capable of doing with the bat, especially in the T20 format. He just has to dig deep, stay patient and play those delicious strokes that we all love to see. We expect to see him put in an absolute shift against the Chennai Super Kings.
