GT vs CSK Today Match Prediction & Tips

Gujarat Titans vs Chennai Super Kings T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Gujarat Titans will take on Chennai Super Kings in the 59th match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad and will start at 7:30 PM IST on May 10.

Gujarat Titans need a miracle to qualify for the playoffs. With just four wins in 11 games, they are placed at the bottom of the points table. GT need to win all three games by massive margins to have any hopes of qualifying but they play CSK, KKR and SRH, the three most dangerous teams in IPL 2024, in their following matches. The road to the final looks a distant dream and to be fair, the IPL 2022 champions have not shown any signs of a team that is competing to win.

Meanwhile, CSK returned to winning ways after they defeated PBKS by 28 runs. CSK need wins in all three games to assure themselves a playoff berth. The points table is jam packed and SRH, DC, LSG and even RCB are in the fray for the final two spots. In an ideal situation, CSK would look to win all three games and book a berth in playoffs, however, if they’d to lose a game, it certainly won’t be against GT. CSK have RR to play in Chennai thus a win against GT is a must to keep them in good space. However, lack of consistency from Ajinkya Rahane, Daryl Mitchell and Ravindra Jadeja is a cause of concern. Also, with Mustafizur Rahman and Matheesha Pathirana out, the bowling looks bleak.

The captains winning the toss should chase. There could be some dew in evening while the ground dimensions and impact player rule make batting second a more feasible option. 

GT vs CSK Pitch Report

The surface at the Narendra Modi Stadium in generally good for batting. However, the last game here saw the batters struggle for timing. If the same pitch is used, spinners could come into play. A score of 180 should be par here but there is nothing such as a safe score in IPL 2024. 

Ahmedabad Weather Report

It will be a hot evening in Ahmedabad, with temperature touching the 30 degree mark. The humidity will be 37 percent while the wind speed will be 14 km/h.

GT Team News & Playing 11

GT Team News

Gujarat Titans find themselves in a no man’s land. None of the players have shown any form and the team don’t have much replacements available either. They are likely to field the same playing XI.

GT Key Players

  • Shubman Gill – Shubman Gill has been very ordinary this season and is one of the main reasons why the team has struggled. He has scored 322 runs in IPL 2024 but lacked consistency. If GT have to harbour hopes of pulling off an upset against CSK, Gill has to play a big innings.
  • Sai Sudharsan – Sai Sudharshan has scored a few runs but his strike rate is in question. He has scored 424 runs at a strike rate of 130. Sudharsan can play big shots and improving strike rate should not be a concern if he manages to get his intent right.
  • Rashid Khan – Rashid Khan has had a disappointing tournament so far, with just eight wickets to his name. GT will get into trouble if Rashid Khan is not getting wickets thus the champion bowler needs to find his mojo back.
  • Noor Ahmed – Noor Ahmed is probably the only player in GT who could hold his head high. He too has taken just eight wickets but has looked the most threatening of all bowlers.

GT Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Sandeep Warrier, Vijay Shankar, Jayant Yadav, Darshan Nalkande, Sharath BR.

Vijay Shankar can be used as an impact player as he could come in and score quick runs in middle overs. In case the team needs bowler, Sandeep Warrier could be a good pick.

GT Team Form

GT have been very poor this season. They have played 11 games, winning four and losing seven. The team has been let down by batters as none of the batters has looked assured at the crease.

GT Predicted Playing 11

Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (c), Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, Shahrukh Khan, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Manav Suthar, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma, Joshua Little

CSK Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

CSK have a problem of plenty. Mustafizur Rahman has returned home while Matheesha Pathirana has also went back to Sri Lanka due to injury. Maheesh Theekshana is available but with Santner doing well in previous game, he is likely to warm he bench. CSK could drop Richard Gleeson and bring in Rachin Ravindra. Ajinkya Rahane could be dropped for Mukesh Choudhary. 

CSK Key Players

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad – Ruturaj Gaikwad has carried the team’s burden ably in IPL 2024. He is the second highest run scorer of the tournament with 541 runs to his name. CSK batting has struggled when Gaikwad did not perform thus the captain has to be at the peak of his prowess against GT.
  • Shivam Dube –  Shivam Dube has run out of form in the last couple of games, getting out for ducks. However, he has been outstanding for the team throughout the season and once can almost sense a big innings from him against Gujarat Titans.
  • Ravindra Jadeja – Ravindra Jadeja scored a crucial 43 against PBKS. Runs from Jadeja are a massive plus as he is one of the main players of the team and CSK need him to contribute with the bat. Jadeja has also picked up great bowling form and bagged a three wicket haul against PBKS.
  • Mitchell Santner – Mitchell Santner made an immediate impact and bowled a brilliant spell of 1-10 against PBKS. Santner is a champion spinner and a more than handy batter down the order. He will be a big part of CSK set-up in the absence of Rahman and Pathirana.

CSK Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Sameer Rizvi, Simranjeet Singh, Shaik Rasheed, Mukesh Chaudhary, Prashant Solanki

Simranjeet Singh bagged two wickets for 16 runs while coming in as an Impact player. He will be preferred if CSK need a bowler while Sameer Rizvi could come in if there is a need for a batter.

CSK Team Form

CSK have blown hot and cold but they have won six games in 11 outings. Wins in remaining three games will take CSK to playoffs, however, the team has looked over reliant on Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shivam Dube with the bat. Other batters need to chip in too.

CSK Predicted Playing 11

Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Shivam Dube, Daryl Mitchell, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (wk), Shardul Thakur, Tushar Deshpande, Mitchell Santner, Mukesh Choudhary

GT vs CSK Head to Head

There is very little to choose between teams in terms of head to head record as both teams have won three games each.

GT vs CSK Betting Odds

CSK are getting the favourites tag on betting platforms. The team looks strong on paper and come into the game on back of a stunning win over PBKS. GT, on the other hand, has been very ordinary so CSK are being backed as winners.

Who will win Gujarat Titans vs Chennai Super Kings T20 Match?

We suggest backing CSK to win. The Gaikwad-led side has blown hot and cold but their win over PBKS should give them great confidence. They are a better team than GT on paper and should win the game without much struggle.
