Pitch & Weather Report

The Chennai pitch is a tricky one and it is CSK's fortress. During the opening game of the IPL 2024 season, CSK chased down 175 with ease.

Chennai Super Kings

CSK vs GT: Gaikwad and Rizvi in training

CSK started their campaign with a victory against Royal Challengers Bangalore at home. It was a complete performance from the side as they chased the target easily. They bowled well and then completed the chase comfortably. Mustafizur Rahman picked up four wickets on his CSK debut while another debutant Rachin Ravindra played an important and fiery knock of 37. None of the RCB bowlers could threaten CSK's batters and it was a cakewalk for them. The only weak link to CSK's bowling attack is Tushar Deshpande who hasn't been improved since last season.

Ruturaj Gaikwad will have to improve after that poor knock while Daryl Mitchell will be looking not to throw away his wickets this time. In the bowling unit, Deepak Chahar and Tushar Deshpande will have to improve otherwise it would be difficult for CSK to stop Gujarat from scoring. Ravindra Jadeja bowled well in the match against RCB and he also scored some valuable runs during the chase. Sameer Rizvi didn't get the opportunity to come into bat and he will be curious to face his first delivery in the IPL MS Dhoni also didn't get the chance to come into bat but he will be ready whenever the team needs him.

Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans started their campaign with a dramatic victory over Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2024. Shubman Gill started brilliantly and scored 31 runs in the first match but couldn't extend his inning. Sai Sudharsan played an important innings but didn't get the help he needed. The Gujarat middle-order will have to come up with lots of improvements against CSK while Gill will be hoping Wriddhiman Saha to stay on the pitch for a couple of overs more.

Spencer Johnson picked up two wickets in the first match and will try to get some more in the match against CSK. Rashid Khan didn't get any wickets but was brilliant with the ball and didn't concede more than 25 runs in his 4-over spell. He always has been consistent for the national side and the franchises and it remained the same this time also. Omarzai and Umesh Yadav also picked up two wickets each and will lead the bowling unit against CSK. Mohit Sharma started the campaign with the same form he ended the last one and will be excited to face his ex-franchise once again.
