In their only meeting at the Chepauk, it was the Super Kings who won after their newly-appointed skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad scored 60 runs.

Gujarat Titans

The Giants made a brilliant start to their campaign after beating Hardik Pandya’s by 6 runs in a thrilling encounter at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Umesh Yadav defended 19 runs in the last over as GT had the last laugh.

After being put in to bat first, the Titans scored 168 for the loss of 6 wickets. Sai Sudharsan top scored with 45 off 39 balls. Thereafter, the GT bowlers held their nerve at a time when MI were cruising to victory.

The CSK vs GT prediction is dependent on how the Titans get themselves used to the conditions in Chennai.

Gujarat Titans Possible 11: Shubman Gill (c), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Sai Sudharsan, Vijay Shankar, David Miller, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Umesh Yadav, R Sai Kishore, Spencer Johnson

Chennai Super Kings

The Super Kings made a stupendous start to their campaign after they defeated Faf du Plessis’ Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) by 6 wickets at the Chepauk. After being asked to chase down 174, the home team went past the finish line comfortably with 8 balls left in their innings.

Rachin Ravindra gave them the platform with a knock of 37 after which the Super Kings did not look back. Most of their batters made vital contributions and did not let the required run rate go out of hand.

The outcome of the CSK vs GT prediction will depend a lot on how the Super Kings keep up with their dominance in home conditions.

Chennai Super Kings Possible 11: Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Daryl Mitchell, Ravindra Jadeja, Sameer Rizvi, MS Dhoni (wk), Deepak Chahar, Maheesh Theekshana, Mustafizur Rahman, Tushar Deshpande

Pitch report and expected weather conditions

The pitch at the Chepauk is expected to be a decent one for the batters. But slower bowlers can extract a lot out of the surface. Scoring runs in the powerplay will hold a lot of importance. Teams need to score around the 190-run mark to be on the safer side.

There is no chance of rain for the time being in Chennai. Temperatures will be around the 30-degree Celsius mark. The playing conditions, however, will be extremely humid with the numbers in the 70s, Wind gusts of 28 km/h will be there.

CSK vs GTS Dream11 prediction

Our CSK vs GT Dream11 predictions for this match:

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Wriddhiman Saha
  • Batter(s): Ajinkya Rahane, Daryl Mitchell, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sai Sudharsan, Shubman Gill
  • All-rounder(s): Ravindra Jadeja, Rachin Ravindra, Azmatullah Omarzai
  • Bowler(s): Rashid Khan, Mustafizur Rahman
  • Recommended captain: Ravindra Jadeja
  • Recommended vice-captain: Azmatullah Omarzai

We have picked Ravindra Jadeja as the captain as he is someone who can be equally effective with both bat and ball. He is aware of the conditions at the Chepauk and it should not be surprising if he picks up a couple of wickets against the Titans. Jadeja has also played useful knocks lower down the order, a reason why he has stayed with the Super Kings for quite a few seasons now.

Azmatullah Omarzai is our vice-captain given how he played against MI. Making his debut in the IPL, he did not show any signs of nervousness. He scored 17 runs off 11 balls with a four and a six. Thereafter, he finished with figures of 3-0-27-2 after picking up the wickets of Ishan Kishan and Naman Dhir.

As per the CSK vs GT match prediction, the Super Kings should be able to go past the finish line. They will be high on confidence after beating the Challengers and should be able to carry the momentum into their next contest as well. The Titans need to pull a rabbit out of the hat to defy the odds.
