series: Indian Premier League 2023
Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans, Final 28th may 7.30 PM IST
Venue: Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad
Gujarat Titans will be mighty confident while taking on CSK on their home turf. The defending champions outplayed a strong and in-form MI in the last match here and given the pitch conditions we expect another such
performance from the home team.
However, it is not only the Titans who would exploit these pitch conditions. CSK also have a brilliant batting lineup that can get the most out of this pitch. Gaikwad and Dube will be key players to watch out for in CSK.
On a pitch where even Shami was taken to the cleaners by a young batsman like Tilak Verma, CSK will be on shaky grounds given their inexperienced attack. Pathirana, Theekshana, and Tushar Deshpande
are such tricky selections in the CSK side who can be the potential vulnerabilities.
There is still hope for CSK if MS Dhoni can plan for Gill’s early dismissal exposing the middle order of GT that hasn’t made many big contributions in recent games as they’ve been riding on Gill’s performances.
Chennai Super Kings Preview
This could be MS Dhoni’s last IPL season and as such fans of CSK will be hoping to see the former India captain lift the trophy for one last time. However, it is no easy feat. Though CSK defeated GT
in the Qualifier 1, the defending champions look like a different beast altogether on their home ground in Motera.
Gujarat Titans Preview
Gujarat Titans looked a bit on the backfoot after their loss against CSK in Chepauk. However, after their recent win over MI, the defending champions have bounced back in great fashion.
They will carry the momentum from that game and their key batsman, Shubman Gill will be even more confident as the final will take place at the same venue in Ahmedabad.
Gujarat Titans will defend their title in front of their home crowd in Ahmedabad at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Looking at the recent match it seems like a 190-210 score will not be enough and teams need to
put up a massive total like GT did in the last game. The boundaries aren’t small here and batters need to time the ball well to clear the fence.
key players GUJ : Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami
key players CSK : Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shivam Dube, Deepak Chahar, Maheesh Theekshana
Prediction: Gujarat Titans to win IPL 2023
