- Match: Lucknow vs Chennai, Indian T20 League
- Date: 31st March 2022
- Time: 07:30 PM IST
- Venue: Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai
At the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, Lucknow will face Chennai in Match 7 of the Indian T20 League 2022. Both clubs have had a disappointing start to their seasons this year and will be hoping to make amends in the next games. The preceding game between Lucknow and Gujarat was a nail-biter. Despite the defeat, they had a few bright spots. Chennai, on the other hand, had a bad day, and new captain Ravindra Jadeja would be expected to do much better in the forthcoming match.
Quinton de Kock may not have gotten off to a fantastic start at a new club, but we all know what he's capable of in this style. It's simply a later stage of the game with a lot more to come; he can also provide fantasy points with his gloves, so don't risk it by dropping him.
KL Rahul went for a golden duck in his last match, which was not a good start for him, but he is the man who won the orange cap in 2020 with 670 runs in 14 matches, scoring 593, 659, 670, and 626 in the last four seasons, demonstrating what a consistent player he is. He will be a captain choice for most Fantasy teams.
Leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi is popular in T20 cricket, and he played nine matches in 2021, taking 12 wickets with a top of 3/24 and an economy rate of 6.95.
MS Dhoni is playing with a clear mind now that he has relinquished the captaincy. The all-time great Dhoni scored a half-century against Kolkata in the opening match of the season, and he can also add some crucial points from behind the wickets.
Dwayne Bravo has been Chennai's mainstay and game changer throughout important games, taking three wickets in the most recent encounter against Kolkata but unable to lead his team to win. In the IPL, he has taken 170 wickets in 152 appearances, with the highest statistic of 4/22.
Ravindra Jadeja, the captain of Chennai, can provide fantasy points with both bat and ball. He has played 201 IPL matches, scoring 2412 runs and taking 127 wickets, with the best performance of 5/16 against the Deccan in 2012.
Pitch Report & Conditions
The pitch has obviously performed pretty well in the one game that has been played so far in the tournament at the Brabourne Stadium, and it appeared like the spinners received a little bit of help. However, this was a daytime event, and things may be different in the evenings when dew is a concern. Because chasing was very simple in the previous game, the captain who wins the toss is likely to bowl first.
Probable Playing XI:
KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Manish Pandey, Evin Lewis, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan, Ravi Bishnoi, Dushmantha Chameera
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Shivam Dube, Mitchell Santner, Dwayne Bravo, Adam Milne, Tushar Deshpande.
