LSG vs CSK: Live Score and Update

LSG vs CSK: Match has been called-off!

The rain prevailed in the encounter. The match has been officially called off. It is still raining and it would have been impossible to resume the game before the cut-off time. It is disappointing for any cricket fan as this game was important for both teams. Such a shame because it was set up to be an intriguing chase after Badoni’s gem. In the end, LSG and CSK will share a point each! Dhoni waves at the crowd, who go bonkers seeing him.

For you, shift tabs to PBKS vs MI Live Blog, MI have opted bowl at Mohali!

Update (6:40 PM): The rain has gotten heavier and it is falling steadily. We have started losing overs. The cut-off time for a 5-over game is 7:28 PM. The target for CSK in that scenario would be 42 runs. If the game doesn’t start by then, it will be called-off.

The second game of the double-header begins soon. So while we wait, switch tabs and catch the updates from the PBKS vs MI game at Mohali!

Update(5:20 PM): A heavy drizzle at the Ekana Stadium has stopped play. LSG are 125/7 in 19.2 overs. Ayush Badoni has struck a excellent fifty and is playing a blinder here. Super Giants were 62/5 at the end of 14 overs and have managed to double it in the next 5 overs! If LSG don’t bat again, CSK would need 127 runs in 19 overs.

LSG vs CSK: Runs not coming easily!

Lucknow Super Giants is still fighting an admirable fight. Spinners are really tough to hit here. And it’s not getting any easier against the seamers, who are making good use of the variances. Anything above 120 can be considered competitive. But, in order to get there, LSG needs someone to perform brilliantly! LSG are 73/5 after 15 overs.

LSG vs CSK: LSG lose half their side at the halfway mark!

CSK spinners are all-over Lucknow batting order. Theekshana & Moeen have picked 2 wickets each and Jadeja has 1.  It is looking like another one of the those dreaded Lucknow pitches where spinners dictate the game. LSG never got beyond six and over in this game, and are in some serious trouble Pooran holds the key from here, A total of 135 is certianly defendable with the spin attack that LSG have! Currently LSG are 44/5 after 10 overs.

Flight, Turn and Cleaned-up!

Jadeja has knocked over Stoinis with a beauty. Stoinis stands there in disbelief. The ball was flighted and it pitched on the leg stump but turned enough to hit the top of the off-stump. A dream delivery for a left-arm finger spinner. LSG 4-down now. CSK are roaring after opting to bowl!

LSG vs CSK: Theekshana ends the powerplay with double-wicket over!

Maheesh Theekshana strikes twice in the sixth over of the innings to remove Manan Vohra and Krunal Pandya off successive deliveries. First Vohra shuffled to scoop and missed. Then a flat delivery turned away from Krunal Pandya to catch a leading edge that flew to Rahane at slips. LSG 31/3 after the powerplay!

Moeen gets Mayers!

Moeen has Mayers’ number once again!! This is twice now this season. Superb captaincy by MS Dhoni to get in the off-spinner early! It wasn’t necessary for the southpaw to attack the unfavourable match-up. But he was tempted with some flight and he charged down for the big slog! Gaikwad pouches an easy catch at long-off! CSK strike early!!

Toss Update: The toss has been delayed due to a light drizzle!

Pitch Report by Danny Morrison and Aaron Finch: The pitch is very patchy, there is quite a lot of green grass on it compared to what we’ve seen in the past. But is very dry underneath. Some plate cracking there. Don’t expect this wicket to play with much bounce in it. Won’t be a lot of bounce. Will still favour the spin.


In the 46th game of the IPL 2024, Lucknow Super Giants will face Chennai Super Kings at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. CSK travel to the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow to take on the hosts. Follow the feed for LSG vs CSK Live Score and Update.

LSG has won five of its first nine games and is now third in the points chart. They come into this game after failing to chase down a 127-run target against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous match. Early setback for them is that KL Rahul is out of today’s game. Krunal Pandya will lead the team today!

Chennai Super Kings have also won five of their first nine games, placing them fourth in the points standings. They have lost their last two games and will be seeking to rebound. Their latest loss came against Punjab Kings. Meanwhile, the Super Kings will feel more at home in Lucknow with a bowling attack capable of sucking all the momentum out of the opposition’s innings. But they need to improve their bowling in powerplay and death!
