CKS vs GT: The first qualifier match of IPL 2023 will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans on Tuesday, May 23. This first match of the playoffs will be played at MA Chidambaram Stadium (Chepauk) in Chennai. The match will start at 7:30 pm. The winning team in this match will directly make it to the finals. With which strategy both the teams will take the field in this match, it will be a matter to be seen.
Experienced captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will face challenge in front of Hardik Pandya in the match. Although Hardik Pandya understands the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni very well. In the Indian team, he has played many matches under Dhoni. At the same time, Gujarat, captained by Hardik Pandya, has played three matches against Chennai so far in the IPL, in which Gujarat’s winning percentage has been 100.
Both teams don’t see the price tag
One thing very similar has been seen in the team of Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans this season that both the teams did not pay attention to the expensive players. On the one hand, Chennai gave only one chance to Krishnappa Gautam, who had a huge price of about Rs 10 crore, due to team combination. On the other hand, Gujarat did not give a single chance to Shivam Mavi, priced at Rs 6 crore, and preferred Mohit Sharma instead.
Chepauk pitch could be a challenge for Gujarat
Gujarat Titans will play their first match in IPL 2023 at Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. The slow pitch here can become a challenge for Gujarat. Chennai’s Deepak Chahar can prove to be the death knell for Gujarat in the powerplay.
These changes can happen in the playing XI of both the teams
This match is very important for both. In such a situation, Chennai and Gujarat would like to field with their best playing XI. Fast bowler Joshua Little may return to Gujarat’s playing XI. Apart from this, spinner Sai Kishore can also be a part of the playing XI in place of Yash Dayal.
On the other hand, hardly any changes can be seen in the playing eleven of Chennai. Ruturaj Gaikwad can start the innings from the side of the team along with Devon Conway. Apart from this, Ajinkya Rahane can play the role of number three. Now it has to be seen with which playing XI both the teams come down and who they give a place in the playing XI.
