Really glad that we get to play all our home games here at Chepauk, means a lot” – MS Dhoni seemed quite emotional during the toss.

CSK vs LSG LIVE: 100 for Krunal Pandya!
A massive achievement for Krunal Pandya as he will be playing his 100th match in the Indian Premier League. A solid all-rounder of the years and he will try to cement his position in the middle-order for Gujarat Titans.
CSK vs LSG LIVE: Pitch Report
“Square boundaries – 68m on one side, 61m on the other side, downtown – 75m. The batters will look to scoop and dab. It’s got a white sheen and it’s got the grass clippings rolled in. Average first innings score is 150, winning score will be around 165-167. Chasing here is challenging, but it’s a night game. Will the dew be a bit of a factor? Fingers crossed that it’s not too outrageous. Even though it’s ‘spin to win’, if a batter gets in and smashes it to the small sides, then look out, because the bowlers here at Chepauk can absolutely disappear.”
CSK vs LSG LIVE: Kane Williamson news
New Zealand batter Kane Williamson left the Gujarat Titans (GT) camp on Sunday, putting an end to his participation in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. Williamson has been ruled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) after suffering a knee injury in the IPL campaign opener against Chennai Super Kings on Friday at the Narendra Modi Stadium, announced the franchise on Sunday.
CSK vs LSG Live: Thala Dhoni is here!
First visuals of Thala at Chepauk! And the crowd erupts in joy. This is a big match for CSK after their loss in the opening match. They are playing are Chepauk after three years.
CSK vs LSG Live: CSK are here!
Visuals show that fans have already lined up outside the MA Chidambaram stadium. The CSK team bus is also here.
CSK vs LSG Live: All eyes on Ben Stokes!
England superstar Ben Stokes, bought for Rs 16.25 crore, would be eager to show his worth in the team’s opening home game and set the pace for the long season ahead.
CSK vs LSG Live: Terrific Mark Wood!
The pacey Mark Wood, who dented Delhi’s hopes with his triple strike, will be the one CSK batters would be wary of. His searing pace could cause a few problems for the home team’s strong batting unit.
That apart, LSG spinners Ravi Bishnoi and K Gowtham would have a big role to play if the team hopes to keep the opposition batters in check.
CSK vs LSG Live: LSG a strong opponent!
Up against the four-time champions are the KL Rahul-led LSG, who must have been buoyed by the comprehensive win over Delhi Capitals on Saturday night.
Kyle Mayers launched a furious assault at the top for the Super Giants and his performance would be crucial on a wicket not so conducive for over-the-top aggression.
CSK vs LSG Live: Jadeja-Santner factor!
The comforting factor for CSK would be the return to familiar conditions at the Chidambaram stadium, where the spinners are expected to have a big say as seen in the India-Australia third ODI played here 10 days ago.
Ravindra Jadeja and Mitchell Santner did not have much of an impact in the season opener, and they will be hoping to step up in Monday’s game.
CSK vs LSG Live: Concern for CSK
Despite a superb knock from the classy Ruturaj Gaikwad, the rest of the batters could not capitalise and help CSK post a big total. The team’s fans will be hoping that the strong batting line-up rises to the occasion.
Gaikwad toyed with the Gujarat Titans bowlers and made batting look easy. His exit slowed things down and CSK could only make a modest score, which was chased down by the defending champions.
CSK vs LSG Live: A much-awaited return!
After losing their opening match, Chennai Super Kings will return to their den — the MA Chidambaram stadium — for the first home match of the season against Lucknow Super Giants here on Monday and aim to pick up a win. When Mahendra Singh Dhoni leads his team here, the four-time champion will, without a doubt, receive a rapturous welcome as CSK return to the Chepauk after nearly four years.
