The game between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans may not have much at stake as Gujarat has already qualified for the playoffs while Chennai is out of the running. But both teams will be looking to do their best as Gujarat Titans will want to finish first while Chennai will play for their pride.
Super Kings of Chennai and Gujarat Titans will meet in their next league stage game at IPL 2022. The stakes will not be high on this game as Hardik Pandya-The Gujarat Titans have already qualified for the playoffs, which is quite impressive considering this is their debut season. The Titans have dominated the tournament so far and it will be interesting to see if they still get their full squad against Chennai or test their bench as they prepare for playoff games.
The defending champions Chennai Super Kings have had a very disappointing season in 2022. MS Dhoni had handed over the captaincy to Ravindra Jadeja before the start of the season. However, that did not work out as CSK lost 6 games out of the 8 matches they played, leading to Jadeja resigning as team captain and handing the reins back to MS Dhoni.
With Chennai Super Kings already out of the tournament, fans can expect them to play fearless cricket and entertain the crowd as they play for their pride against Gujarat Titans.
Gujarat Titans have been in excellent form throughout this season and are the first team to qualify for the playoffs. They have 18 points in the league so far after winning 9 games and have lost just three games. Chennai Super Kings is not going through a good time as they have lost 8 matches and won only 4, so they are in 9th place in the points table.
head to head
Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings have played each other only once. In that game, Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans had emerged victorious.
Ruturaj Gaikwad one of the best hitters in the Chennai Super Kings franchise. He got off to a slow start in the first few games as he found it difficult to get out of lockdowns. But once he got the hang of it, the young hitter has been unstoppable. When he takes on GT’s bowling attack, fans can expect some fireworks as the right-handed batsman will be itching to get started.
Gujarat Titans have dominated throughout the tournament and are currently in brilliant form. The match between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans should go in favor of the Hardik Pandya led side and position them firmly at the top of the points table.
