Lucknow Super Giants, one of the two new IPL 2022 teams will face IPL 2021 winners defending champions Chennai Super Kings in the 7th Match of the ongoing IPL 2022 on Thursday, 31st March at Brabourne, CCI. The match will start at 7:30 pm IST.
Chennai Super Kings, IPL 2021 defending champions, also lost their opening fixture like Lucknow Super Giants, against Kolkata Knight Riders. Former skipper MS Dhoni and the new captain, Ravindra Jadeja, proceeded to stitch an unbeaten 70-run partnership for the 6th wicket to bail CSK out of trouble. MS Dhoni scored his first fifty in nearly three years. CSK managed to put up 132 runs on the board but it was nowhere near enough for their bowlers to defend.
