Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will lock horns with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Match 45 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. The match will be played at the Ekana Sports City in Lucknow. It is scheduled to kick-start at 3:30 PM (IST).
When the two teams met earlier in IPL 2023, Chennai won the game by 12 runs. It was a high-scoring game at the Chepauk and a total of 412 runs were scored with the bat by both CSK and LSG.
As the game will be taking place at Lucknow and the pitch there is slow and sluggish and the ground is quite big, it won’t be a high-scoring game. Bowlers will play a more predominant role in this LSG vs CSK game.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for this LSG vs CSK game of IPL 2023 at Lucknow:
1. Ravindra Jadeja (Chennai Super Kings)
Keeping in mind the spin-friendly conditions of Lucknow, Ravindra Jadeja can be a good vice-captain pick in your team. Jadeja is essentially the backbone of CSK and can be a vital force in the CSK team for this LSG vs CSK game.
Jadeja has been prolific with the ball so far in IPL 2023 and has taken 13 wickets. He can be brought in by MS Dhoni to arrest the run-flow of the opposition. And we all are aware that Jadeja can weave a lot of magic with his willow.
2. Ravi Bishnoi (Lucknow Super Giants)
Talented leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi has been the best bowler for Lucknow in IPL 2023 so far. In 9 games so far, the 22-year-old spinner from Jodhpur has bagged 12 wickets. In the previous LSG vs CSK fixture on 3rd April 2023, Bishnoi spun a web around the batters of CSK and had 3 scalps to his name.
With huge boundaries and sluggish conditions, Bishnoi can be an ideal choice for a vice-captain.
3. Kyle Mayers (Lucknow Super Giants)
Come floods, come storms and Kyle Mayers still will be scoring runs at the top for LSG. Such has been the dominance of the Caribbean power-hitter in IPL 2023 so far. Initially coming in as a replacement player for Quinton De Kock in the playing XI, Mayers has grabbed his opportunity with both hands and has been sensational with the willow, to say the least.
He has been the top-scorer of LSG so far in this edition of the lucrative IPL and has amassed 297 runs in 9 games.
