IPL 2023: Finals: CSK vs GT, Match Prediction and more details

The finals of the grandest T20 league is upon us. It will be a CSK vs GT affair at the Narendra Modi Stadium on 28th May.

Gujarat Titans will play host to Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League’s finals. The final game will be a repeat of the opening game’s clash. The two sides have met twice during this season. Both teams have won one game at least. Gujarat won in the opening game which was played at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. Chennai won the important clash of Qualifier 1 which was played at the Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Here is all you need to know before the CSK vs GT finals.

Gujarat Titans come into this game on the back of a win against the Mumbai Indians at the same stadium. Shubman Gill at the top of the order has been in sensational form, the young Indian batter has scored 3 centuries in the last 4 games. In the bowling department, pacer Mohammed Shami leads in the race for Purple Cap with 28 wickets. Shami is followed by Rashid Khan and Mohit Sharma on the list with 27 and 24 wickets respectively. The addition of Joshua Little to the squad helped in strengthening their bowling department.

Chennai Super Kings defeated the defending champions in Qualifier 1 of the IPL. Things will be different this time around for Chennai as they face Gujarat Titans in their home stadium. CSK’s strong suit this season has been their batting line-up. Their openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway have scored the bulk of the runs. Conway has scored 625 runs while Gaikwad has scored 564 runs. In the bowling department, their highest wicket-taker of the season has been Tushar Deshpande with 21 wickets. Deshpande despite his expensive economy has led the fast bowling team for the majority of the season in the absence of seasoned fast bowler Deepak Chahar. Ravindra Jadeja has also been in great touch with the ball as he has picked up 19 wickets.
