Match No. 34 of the IPL 2024 will be a LKN vs CHE clash to take place on Friday in Lucknow.

Lucknow Super Giants started the IPL 2024 pretty well; they won three consecutive games after a loss in the first one. They were looking for great momentum, but suddenly, LKN suffered two consecutive defeats. As a result, they have slipped to fifth place on the table.

They will have an even bigger challenge in front of them. LKN will face Chennai Super Kings on Friday at Ekana Stadium. CHE have registered two consecutive wins now and their last win against Mumbai Indians would have given them a lot of confidence.

LKN vs CHE: Head-to-Head

The upcoming game will be the fourth game between Chennai Super Kings (CHE) and Lucknow Super Giants (LKN) in the IPL. These two teams have won one game each and the other was washed out.

LKN vs CHE: Top five player battles to watch

1. Quinton de Kock vs Shardul Thakur

Quinton de Kock has been in good touch in IPL 2024. He is giving good starts to the team and that’s what he will have in mind. A good start from De Kock can help Lucknow get an advantage.

However, he will have to face Shardul Thakur who has god numbers against him. Shardul has dismissed De Kock two times in the IPL in 35 balls and the batter has scored 46 runs.

2. KL Rahul vs Ravindra Jadeja

A big match-up will be between two veteran Indian stars who have played many games together across formats. We are talking about KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja. These two have crossed paths many times in the IPL.

They know each other well which can help them in this battle. Jadeja is yet to dismiss Rahul in the IPL, but he has only given away 48 runs off 42 balls at a strike rate of 114.3.

3. Ruturaj Gaikwad vs Ravi Bishnoi

The CHE captain Ruturaj Gaikwad has scored two half-centuries in the last two games. He will look to repeat the performance in the coming game. He is pretty good against pace, but there is still a weakness against quality spin and Ravi Bishnoi can exploit it.

The leg-spinner bowls very economically and has a decent match-up against Gaikwad. He has dismissed the CHE captain once in 11 balls and Gaikwad has scored 17 runs off him.

4. Shivam Dube vs Shamar Joseph

With Mayank Yadav not available, LKN have picked Shamar Joseph for the extra pace in their bowling unit. Well, he didn’t have a great debut, but he created a few chances and there were three dropped catches off his bowling.

Well, the positive was his extra speed, as he clocked 150 kmph a few times. That can rattle anyone. Shivam Dube is the main batter for CHE and he is scoring runs in almost every game. He can murder spin, but extra pace can be very effective against him. Hence, it will be an important match-up in the game.

5. Nicholas Pooran vs Matheesha Pathirana

Nicholas Pooran will be the one player to watch out for. The left-hander is one of the most destructive batters in IPL 2024. He can score runs at a rapid pace and has hit 19 sixes so far. But, he will be up against Matheesha Pathirana, who has good numbers against him. The CHE pacer has bowled 30 balls to Pooran and dismissed him three times in T20s and the batter has scored 31 runs at a 103.3 strike rate. So, this battle can change the outcome of the LKN vs CHE clash.
