Gujarat Titans (GT) will play against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Qualifier 1 of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023). The match will be taking place at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday 23rd May at 7:30 PM IST.
Team Preview (Gujarat Titans): The defending champions Gujarat Titans have been in brilliant form in this tournament. They have managed to win 10 of their 14 matches and finished at the top of the points table with 20 points. Now they will be going against the Super Kings whom they have defeated on all three previous occasions.
A win in this match will mean that GT will be playing their second consecutive final since their entry into the tournament. The Hardik Pandya-led side has been a perfect example of how a team game should be played. In every match there has been a different match-winner for them with Shubman Gill being their most consistent batter. Mohammed Shami and Rashid have done a great job with the ball being at the top of the purple cap list.
These two have ensured that the opposition never gets a reprieve during their batting efforts. The Titans will be going in all-out in this match in order to make it to the summit clash of the tournament and try to defend their title. Josh Little has returned to the GT camp after having a successful international stint in the middle of the IPL.
Injury/Unavailability: Shankar regained full fitness ahead of Sunday’s league game against RCB and came in as an impact sub to bat at No.3. Considering Shanaka hasn’t had a lot to do with both bat and ball GT might turn to Joshua Little in the XI or as the impact sub. The left-arm pacer who was away for the Ireland-Bangladesh series returned to the GT squad ahead of the weekend fixture against RCB. He also trained in Chennai on the eve of the first qualifier.
Team Preview (Chennai Super Kings): The Chennai Super Kings have been in good form this tournament. They have won eight of their 14 matches in the league stage. The Super Kings have made it to the playoffs with 17 points under their belt at the second position in the points table. Now they have a chance to make it to the summit clash of the tournament. Even if they lose this match they will have another shot to make it to the grand finale.
The Super Kings have displayed good team game throughout the tournament. While there have been some consistent star performers in Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad players like Tushar Deshpande Shivam Dube and Matheesha Pathirana chipped in whenever needed. The team will now need to put on another strong performance to make it to the final of the tournament in one go overcoming the defending champions in Gujarat Titans.
What to expect: A hot evening is in the offing where temperatures will hit the high 30s. The conditions at the venue suited batters early on but the wickets have slowed down as the tournament has progressed. It reflected in the scores made at the venue as the average 1st innings total came down from 182 in the first four games to 150 in the last three. CSK themselves were outspun in their last game there against KKR. Tuesday’s game however will be played on pitch 5 where CSK and PBKS played out a high-scoring entertainer where the home team’s 200/4 was chased down on the last ball.
Pitch Report: The MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai has been known to offer assistance to both batters and bowlers. It typically favors stroke play due to its even bounce making it conducive for shot-making. The team winning the toss will likely prefer chasing in order to have a clear target in mind.
