LSG vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: The 7th match of the IPL 2022 will be played between Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai on Thursday, March 31, 2022.
LSG vs CSK Match 7 Preview
Both the teams are coming off defeats in their respective previous games. While Chennai Super Kings lost the season opener against Kolkata Knight Riders by 6 wickets, Lucknow Super Giants, suffered a 5 wickets defeat against Gujarat Titans.
The KL Rahul-led side had control over the match for the most part, but they leaked runs in the death overs, which spoiled their plans against Gujarat Titans. Deepak Hooda and Ayush Badoni were two big positives for Lucknow in their last game. Rahul needs to be tactically more good while making decisions on the field.
The Super Kings batters, on the other hand also failed to make an impact except for MS Dhoni, who smashed an excellent fifty to help CSK post a respectable total of 131 runs, which Shreyas Iyer and Co chased down easily. Their bowlers did a great job, it was their batting that was a huge letdown. Going into the second match, CSK will be expecting more from their openers, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway.
Here are the match details, pitch report, probable playing 11, squads and Dream11 fantasy team predictions for Match 7 of the Indian Premier League 2022 between Lucknow Super Giants and Chennai Super Kings on Thursday, March 31, 2022.

Top 5 Picks For LSG vs CSK
1. KL Rahul
He might have scored a duck in the first game against Gujarat Titans, but we all know how destructive this batter could be on his day. Since 2018, he has scored 600 plus runs every season barring 2019, where he fell just 7 runs short of 600. He must be looking for another phenomenal season with the bat this year.
2. Ruturaj Gaikwad
The Orange cap winner of IPL 2021 bagged a duck in the first match against Kolkata Knight Riders. He must be looking for a solid comeback against LSG.
3. Moeen Ali
He is back to where he belongs. He generally bats at number four for CSK and might retain the same place this season as well. He will provide crucial overs with the ball too.
4. Dwayne Bravo
The West Indian started from where he left in IPL 2021 as he picked up 3 wickets for just 20 runs in his quota of 4 overs. Following that, he also became the all-time highest wicket-taker in the IPL, surpassing Lasith Malinga.
5. Ayush Badoni
The 22-year old was one of the key players for Lucknow in their first match against Gujarat Titans. He smacked a quick 54 after the top order collapsed and helped LSG post a respectable total on the board. He will be one of the crucial picks for your fantasy team.
