IPL 2023 is here, and the cricket season is already generating buzz. The competition is ready to conduct Game 6, with the fan favorite CSK competing against LSG.
Ruturaj Gaikwad’s 92 runs helped the Dhoni-led CSK perform admirably despite losing their opening game. On the other hand, LSG secured a comfortable win against DC thanks to Mark Wood’s 5-wicket haul in Game 3.
The teams look contrasting on paper, given CSK’s weak bowling performance. The team will undoubtedly aim to improve its bowling attack, as LSG also had Kyle Mayers hit 73 off 38 balls.
As per several online cricket betting sites, LSG appears to be the better team, with Mark Wood leading the bowling attack. Contrarily, CSK will rely on its evergreen all-rounders like Ravindra Jadeja and Ben Stokes to perform at their best.
