LSG vs CSK, IPL 2023 Highlights: The IPL 2023 match between Lucknow Super Giants and Chennai Super Kings has been called off due to heavy rain at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow. Both the teams will now be sharing one point each. With incessant rain, even the minimum five overs of the CSK innings weren't possible after the home team had made 125 for seven in 19.2 overs when rain interrupted play. LSG middle-order batter Ayush Badoni's unbeaten 59 was the only bright spot in the home team's otherwise lacklustre play as CSK's Moeen Ali (2/13) and Maheesh Theekshana (2/37) impressed by making early inroads. The game began after a 15-minute delay due to wet outfield and rain returned in the final over of the first innings to halt the proceedings. (Scorecard | Points Table)

- 15:08 (IST)LSG vs CSK Live: Hear from Naveen!Naveen-ul-Haq has been in the news after his spat with Kohli, Here's what he said on the pitch for today's match: It is a massive experience coming from Afghanistan. Regularly we see spinners form there, but getting the experience from playing franchise cricket has helped me do well for my team. Always helps when you come to a stadium and not feel a stranger. You know what to do in the red soil and black soil. Not a lot of difference between the two. The black soil gives you a bit more for the cutters, red soil gives more bounce. Just a slight difference.
- 14:16 (IST)LSG vs CSK Live: Pitch report!A red-soil pitch, instead of the black-soil surface for the RCB game, is expected to be used in Lucknow this time around, which will mean more bounce on offer. Despite expected cloud cover in the afternoon, there is no forecast of showers. The average first-innings score at the venue this season has been 147.
