Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans will be facing each other in the 62nd match of IPL 2022, to be played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. So far in this season, CSK has won four and lost eight matches, while GT has won nine and lost three matches. At Wankhede Stadium this season, CSK have lost all their three matches, while GT has won both their matches.
When both teams faced earlier in the season, Gujarat Titans won by three wickets on the penultimate ball of the chase. CSK have been already eliminated, while GT have qualified for the playoffs. For CSK, the opening pair of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway has been in good form. However, Robin Uthappa has been in terrible form in the middle, having scored just three runs in his last four innings.
The captain MS Dhoni has played some valuable knocks for the team. With the ball, Mukesh Choudhary, Dwayne Bravo, and Maheesh Theekshana have decent. For the Gujarat Titans, Shubman Gill has been regaining his form with two fifties in the last two matches, while his opening partner Wriddhiman Saha hasn't been consistent. The skipper Hardik Pandya had lost his batting form in the second half of the season. Mohammed Shami, Rashid Khan, and Yash Dayal have been brilliant.
The surface is excellent for batting and there will be some help for the spinners since this is an afternoon game. Both teams might prefer batting first.
Head-to-Head: Both teams met earlier in the season, with GT emerging victorious by three wickets at the MCA Stadium in Pune.
