The 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League has started off with a bang. The Match no. 7 brings the new franchise Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in front of the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Both the teams lost their opening game but in a contrasting manner. On one hand, LSG lost in a nail-biter to fellow newbies Gujarat Titans. While on the other side, CSK were thumped by Kolkata Knight Riders KKR in a one-sided battle.
Both sides have reasons to rejoice and to be concerned at the same time. The good thing is that one side will be able to open their victory account. Meanwhile, the other team will have to suffer back-to-back defeats.
