IPL 2022, LSG vs CSK: Massive boost for Chennai Super Kings as THIS player returns for Match 7


Moeen Ali IPL: After a poor outing against Kolkata Knight Riders in their tournament opener, Chennai Super Kings are slated to lock horns with new franchise Lucknow Super Giants today (31st March). The match will be the seventh game of the IPL 2022 and will take place at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

LSG vs CSK: Moeen Ali to be available for the fixture against LSG

In what will be a massive boost for defending champions, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), English all-rounder Mooen Ali has completed his mandatory isolation and will be available for his side’s second game.

Ali arrived late in India due to visa issues. He failed to get the clearance for more than three weeks despite having been to India many times. He then arrived in the country on 24th March, following which he completed his isolation and missed the match against KKR.

After completing his 3-day quarantine, Mooen Ali joined CSK’s training session and had quality net sessions with the team. He’s likely to walk starlight into the playing XI and replace Kiwi all-rounder Mitchell Santner from the squad of last match.

Here’s CSK’s Probable Playing XI: 

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Moeen Ali, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (C), MS Dhoni (WK), Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Adam Milne, Rajvendra Hangargekar
