Tip Summary

  • Chennai Super Kings will be aiming to cause a turnaround after a torrid run last year.
  • GT have faced the Chennai Super Kings twice in the league and both the matches saw the former scoring a victory. 

The 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League is all set to go on floors on Friday, March 31 as Gujarat Titans will be doing their title defence in the first match of the Championship against the Chennai Super Kings. The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad is getting an opportunity to host the season opener this season. 

The two teams are coming into the tournament with contrasting moods as they experienced completely different rides in the league last year. The Chennai Super Kings suffered a torrid ride last year as they failed to qualify for the playoffs. Led by two captains MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja, the team ended up in second-last place. 

They featured in a total of 14 games, winning four and losing ten games to collect just eight points. The Super Kings have made big changes in their squad for this season. They let go of a handful of players including the likes of Dwayne Bravo, Adam Milne, Robin Uthappa, and Chris Jordan. The team also spent heavily in the auction and made some crucial picks. England’s Test skipper Ben Stokes is one of the biggest additions to the team this season. 

Coming to Gujarat Titans, they will be pumped up to take the field on Friday. The franchise rocked the league in their debut season last year. The Titans were the underdogs in the 2022 season. They stunned all the fans by topping the points table throughout the competition.

The team won as many as ten league matches while losing only four games. Gujarat followed it up with a win over Rajasthan Royals in the first Qualifier game in Kolkata. The franchise again managed to spill its magic in the final as they defeated the Royals by seven wickets. The bowlers were the ones leading the team as they restricted the opposition to a score of 130 runs. It was an easy total for Hardik Pandya & Men and they cruised to a win within 18.1 overs with seven wickets in hand.

The team was also active during the auction as they picked seven new players in the side while letting go of players like Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Lockie Ferguson.

  • Best Odds: 5.5 @ Dafabet

Shubman Gill will be the man in action as Gujarat Titans will be playing against Chennai Super Kings in the first match of the IPL 2023. The opening batter played a vital role in the team’s title win last year as he ended up as the fifth-highest run-getter. Gill was the second-highest run-scorer for his team after the skipper Hardik Pandya. He played all 16 matches and smacked a total of 483 runs at an average of 34.50. His best performance in the tournament came in one of the league games against the Punjab Kings. He hammered 96 runs off just 59 balls to take his team to a victory by six wickets. His knock was laced with 11 boundaries and only one maximum at a strike rate of over 162. Going into the IPL, Shubman will also be filled with confidence as he is coming after delivering a fine performance for the Indian team on the international stage.

Ruturaj Gaikwad was the find of the season for the Chennai Super Kings in the 2022 edition. The opening batter stunned the who’s who of the cricket fraternity as he smacked a whopping 635 runs in 16 matches at an average of over 45 and a strike rate of over 136. Ruturaj ended up as the highest run-scorer of the season as his team lifted the trophy. However, the batter witnessed a lean patch last year as he was successful in collecting only 368 runs in 14 matches. The chances of the Indian stalwart being back in the form and churning out a sensational performance on Friday are high.
