Indian T20 League 2024

LUC vs CHE, 34th Match



In the 34th match of the 17th edition of the IND T20 League 2024, the northern side Lucknow(LUC) will face Southern side Chennai(CHE) at Ekana Sports City, Lucknow on Friday(19th April 2024). The Hosts led by KL-Rahul's LUC is currently placed at 05th spot in the league standings after winning three matches out of six matches. On the other hand, Ruturaj Gaikwad-led CHE is holding third place in the points table with 4 wins out of six matches. This is going to be a crucial encounter that marks the end of the halfway stage for both teams.

While playing their fifth match of the season, Lucknow had a unique record; the northern side never lost a match where they had more than 160 runs to defend but that unbeaten streak has ended, with KL Rahul’s side failing to defend 160 twice in a row- against Rishabh Pant's Delhi(DEL) at home and Shreyas Iyer's Kolkata(KOL) away from home.

Disappointed with two consecutive losses away from home, the Yellow army returned to winning ways defeating Kolkata at home and thumping arch-rivals Mumbai at Wankhede to regain momentum in match 29 of the league. LUC and CHE will be looking to get in the lead with a solid win to continue marching on in the long tournament.

Both sides have faced each other in 3 matches in Indian T20 League history. Out of these 3 matches, the Sourthern side CHE won 1 whereas the Northern side LUC came out victorious on 1 occasion and their one match ended without a result.

Match Prediction

In a head-to-head battle, both sides have similar advantages however, on paper, Chennai is a more dangerous side having won 5-IND T20 league titles. For this match, we also expect Chennai to be more likely to win this match but we also anticipate Hosts to bounce back in this match.
