Courtesy of winning ten out of 14 matches in the league stage, defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) finished at the top of the IPL 2023 points table. On the other hand, after finishing ninth last year, MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) made a brilliant comeback in the league this time around, finishing second on the charts. Next up, both these teams will face each other at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on May 23, as the winner will qualify for the finals while the losing team will have to play the second qualifier to get to the summit clash.

Interestingly, the four-time champions Chennai have never beaten GT in the history of the competition. However, MS Dhoni is considered to be a maestro of this format and thus, it will be interesting to see Dhoni’s tactics in the upcoming game. Meanwhile, he should also be aware of Shubman Gill, who managed to hit two back-to-back centuries in the ongoing competition. On top of that, Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan are in brilliant form with the ball as well. Thus, CSK might find it difficult as Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, and Shivam Dube will have to take a lot of responsibility with the bat.

MA Chidambaram Stadium Pitch Report Batting or Bowling:

The surface at the MA Chidambaram Stadium is getting slower with each passing game. Thus, the toss is really important. Batting first will be ideal but since GT have a really strong bowling attack, which can defend any total, they can choose to bowl first as well. Anything above 170 will be a good total on this surface.

GT vs CSK Probable Playing XIs:

Gujarat Titans (GT):

Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya (c), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Dasun Shanaka, Mohit Sharma, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, Noor Ahmad

Chennai Super Kings (CSK):

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (wk/c), Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Maheesh Theekshana

GT vs CSK Probable Best Performers

Probable best batter

Shubman Gill:

The young Indian opener is in phenomenal form at the moment. He has scored 680 runs in 14 matches so far and with that; the cricketer is second in the IPL Orange Cap race. He is a vital part of GT’s batting unit and the team would hope that Gill can once again contribute to their success.

Probable best bowler

Rashid Khan:

Since the spinners are expected to get some help from the surface, Rashid Khan can prove to be really dangerous in the middle. So far, the Afghan spin wizard has picked up 24 wickets in the tournament and with that, he is second in the IPL Purple Cap race.
