|Gujarat Titans vs Chennai Super Kings – Qualifier 1– IPL 2023|
|Date||May 23rd, 2023|
|Time||7.30 PM IST, 2:00 PM GMT, 7:30 PM Local Time|
|Venue||MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai|
Chennai Super Kings will face Gujarat Titans in the Qualifier 1 in Chennai. Both teams performed well in the league stage and finished in the top 2. The winner of the match will qualify for the final while the loser will get another shot at the final berth as he will play the winner of Eliminator between LSG and MI in Qualifier 2, the winner of which will play the winner of Qualifier 1 for the IPL 2023 title.
CSK has enjoyed a decent run at home over the years, however, they have lost a few games in the ongoing season in Chennai. The conditions in Chennai assist spinners so GT won’t mind damp wickets, with Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmed in the team. It should be a cracking game.
The surface will assist the spinners. The ball will grip and turn so teams need to ensure they have a good powerplay and finish as scoring in the middle overs won’t be easy.
A clear sky will welcome teams in Qualifier 1. It will be a humid evening with the temperature nearing the 30-degree mark.
Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Hardik Pandya (c), Dasun Shanaka, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Mohit Sharma, Noor Ahmad, Mohammed Shami, Yash Dayal
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Maheesh Theekshana
Both teams have stuck with the same team for a few matches now and it is a clear indication that they feel they are playing with the best combination. No changes are expected in the teams for Qualifier 1.
Gujarat Titans have been a hard nut to crack for the MS Dhoni-led side as they are yet to register a win against them.
|Wicketkeeper||Devon Conway (C)|
|Batters||Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shivam Dube, Shubman Gill, David Miller|
|Bowlers||Rashid Khan (VC), Mohammed Shami, Tushar Deshpande, Noor Ahmed, Matheesha Pathirana|
Shubman Gill has been in great form in IPL 2023 and has scored over 600 runs. The youngster has peaked in the last few games, scoring back-to-back centuries.
Conway is the leading run-scorer of Chennai with 585 runs. Conway has been very consistent for the team, piling on runs in every game. In the last game against KKR, Conway scored 87 runs and helped CSK qualify for the playoffs.
Rashid Khan will be a big match-winner for GT in the coming game. The conditions in Chennai will help the spinners and given the form Rashid is in, he will make life tough for CSK. Rashid so far has taken 24 wickets in 14 matches.
Noor Ahmed has also shown great skills in IPL. Being a chinamen bowler, he is not easy to get away. With the likes of Moeen Ali, Devon Conway, Ravindra Jadeja, and Shivam Dube in CSK, Noor, who enjoys bowling against left-handers, can be the game changer for Gujarat Titans
Jadeja time and again has proved his credential as an all-rounder. While he hasn’t got much opportunity to bat, he has been brilliant with the ball, taking 17 wickets for the MS Dhoni-led side.
