Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans Betting Tips

If I have to place a pattern here, I can safely assume that Shubman Gill is going to break the Law of Averages into pieces. The consistency is exactly like Virat Kohli at his prime, and the way Gill has shattered all of the records this season just goes on to show that a century in the final is not far away. I will bet big on Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan with the ball, even though a serious takedown by Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway couldn’t be ruled out. Trust Matheesha Pathirana to be amongst the wickets as well.

Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans Match Toss Prediction

Batting first at the Narendra Modi Stadium has yielded better results this season as they teams have won five games in eight bouts. However, six out of eight times, captains overestimated the impact of dew by deciding to field first. Runs have come thick and fast, with this season yielding 193 runs in the first innings on an average, with the average first innings winning score being 197.

Weather Report

The second qualifier on Friday was delayed by half an hour after incessant rain threatened to wash the game away but it stayed away after that to result in a full game between Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians. Cricket fans would also expect the rain to stay away on Sunday, considering accuweather.com describes only 3% chance of precipitation on Sunday. There will be 54% cloud cover.

Chennai Super Kings Team Form

In the last six completed matches, Chennai Super Kings have won four and lost two, and in the last game, they got the better of Gujarat Titans by a margin of 15 runs in the first qualifier. They have won their games on the back of the success of their top-order batters, especially Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway. So Gujarat, even though the final will bplayed in their home ground, will be very wary of the four-time champions.

CSK have been one of the best batting sides in the first six overs this season, having the joint third-highest run-rate. They also have the best average runs per wicket at the phase. What makes it special is that their run rate of 9.2 at the phase is amongst the highest for a side at the phase in an IPL season and their average runs per wicket is the best for a side at the phase as well.

Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans Best Batters

Ruturaj Gaikwad to be CSK’s best batter (Melbet)

Ruturaj Gaikwad has been a consistent scorer for CSK this season with 550+ runs to his name, which came at an average of more than 40 and an SR of more than 145. Gaikwad was also the highest scorer for CSK in the first qualifier against Gujarat Titans. As a matter of fact, Gaikwad has crossed the 30-run mark in most of his matches this season, while getting dismissed for a single-digit score only twice. Then what are you waiting for? Gaikwad will surely score the requisite runs.

Shubman Gill to be GT’s best batter (Melbet)

Shubman Gill smacked his third century this season in the important second qualifier against MI to guide GT to the file. The Indian opener has been having a golden run with the bat as this was his third century in the last four games and overtook Faf du Plessis in the last game to become the leading run scorer in IPL 2023. Gill has become only the third batter ever to score more than 850 runs in an IPL season, and only the second Indian to do so. With the kind of form he is in currently, don’t be surprised if he goes on to break Virat Kohli’s record.

Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans Best Bowlers

Tushar Deshpande to be CSK’s best bowler (Melbet)

Tushar Deshpande is currently the leading wicket-taker for CSK this season, with 21 wickets at an impressive SR of just 15.1. The pacer is also currently the joint third-highest wicket-taker in the tournament amongst all bowlers. In the Q1 against GT, Deshpande crossed Mohit Sharma to become the highest wicket-taking uncapped bowler in a season for CSK. Trust him to deliver again.

Mohammed Shami to be GT’s best bowler (Melbet)

Mohammed Shami’s tally of 17 wickets inside the powerplay this season is the highest for any bowler in the first six overs in an IPL season. Shami has performed well in Ahmedabad as he has taken 17 out of his 28 wickets this season in this venue while maintaining an impressive bowling SR of 10.9. Both of his four-wicket hauls this season have come while bowling in Ahmedabad. Then are you in for another stunning performance from the UP pacer? I sure am.

Our Prediction

Favorites to win: Gujarat Titans

As impressive as CSK have been this season, at this point, it is extremely difficult to bet against Gujarat Titans. The form of Shubman Gill is the primary factor that has already threatened to challenge Virat Kohli’s 2016 campaign, with 850 runs already in his bag. Then Gujarat have an impressive roster of bowlers, from Rashid Khan to Mohammed Shami, from Josh Little to Mohit Sharma - who all can be match-winners on their given day. So my money is on Gujarat to win this game.
