Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans match prediction
The Titans lost to the Super Kings in the Qualifier 1 at the Chepauk, but they made amends after beating five-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) by 62 runs on Friday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
GT also kept alive their hopes of defending their title. After beating Rajasthan Royals (RR) last year, can they take down the might of CSK? On Friday, the Titans racked up a huge score of 233 for the loss of three wickets in 20 overs.
Shubman Gill looked in prime form after he scored 129 runs off 60 balls with seven fours and 10 sixes. Sai Sudharsan and Hardik Pandya racked up 43 and 28 respectively to give Shubman support.

Thereafter, the Titans bowled MI out for 171 in 18.2 overs to seal their spot in the final. Mohit Sharma became only the second bowler after Akash Madhwal to pick up a five-wicket haul in IPL playoffs. He finished with figures of 2.2-0-10-5.
Suryakumar Yadav, Cameron Green and Tilak Varma scored 61, 30 and 43 respectively, but their efforts went in vain. Apart from them, none of the MI batters got into double digits.
The CSK vs GT match prediction will depend heavily on how the GT batters carry their excellent batting momentum into the final.
GT possible 11: Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Hardik Pandya (c), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Mohit Sharma, Noor Ahmad, Mohammed Shami, Yash Dayal, Josh Little

Chennai Super Kings
The Super Kings, on the other hand, advanced to the final after beating the Titans in the Qualifier 1. MS Dhoni will be looking to guide their team through to their fifth IPL title, equalling MI’s record. On the head-to-head count, CSK have beaten GT only once out of four matches. Barring the game at the Chepauk earlier this week, the Titans have dominated the Super Kings.
Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway remain a key for the Yellow Army as they are in brilliant form. In the bowling department, Deepak Chahar has done well in the powerplay while Matheesha Pathirana has chipped in at the death. Ravindra Jadeja and Tushar Deshpande are also amongst the wickets.

Maheesh Theekshana was not getting a whole lot of wickets, but he would be high on confidence after picking up two wickets against the Titans in the Qualifier 1.
The Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans match prediction will depend a lot on how the in-form CSK bowlers perform against the Titans’ batting, which is in red hot form.
CSK possible 11: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Maheesh Theekshana

Pitch and expected weather conditions for reserve day
In a truly unprecedented move, the IPL 2023 final has been rescheduled to the reserve day due to an unexpected washout on Sunday. This decision marks a historic moment in the IPL's history, as it deviates from the usual proceedings and promises an extraordinary twist to the grand finale.
Fortunately, the weather forecast for the reserve day remains positive. Although the temperature stands at a cloudy 36°, the probability of a thunderstorm decreases significantly to just 6%. Despite a night of heavy downpours, the skies are now bright and radiant over Motera on this Monday. However, there is a potential cause for concern among fans as the evening approaches, with the looming possibility of rains once again disrupting the proceedings and dampening the spirits of cricket enthusiasts.
CSK vs GT match prediction: Gujarat Titans to win
As per today's match predictions, the Titans should be able to win the Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans match prediction. The Titans have been excellent at home and the defending champions will be tough to beat at the Narendra Modi Stadium.
Man of the match prediction: Shubman Gill
Shubman Gill is currently in the form of his life. He has already scored four hundreds in T20s in 2023, equalling Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli’s record of most hundreds in a calendar year in the format. Gill also became the second batter after Michael Klinger to score three hundreds in four T20 innings. Having also scored three hundreds in his last four innings, Gill is a strong contender to be the Player of the Match for the CSK vs GT match prediction.
