CSK vs GT: Match Preview

First of all, if we talk about Chennai, then this team got a crushing defeat from Mumbai in their last match. In such a situation, the dream of reaching the playoffs for Chennai has also been shattered. Now Chennai will try to perform well in their remaining matches.

In such a situation, against Gujarat captain, Dhoni can change the playing XI and give chances to the young players. Dhoni has always been in favor of young players, so against Gujarat, Hari Nishant and Narayan Jagadeesan may get a chance in place of Ambati Rayudu and Robin Uthappa.

On the other hand, talking about Gujarat, this team has qualified for the playoffs by defeating Lucknow in their last match. Gujarat is the first team to reach the playoffs. In such a situation, Hardik’s team would like to keep itself inside the top 2. In the last match, the bowlers of this team bowled deadly. There is little hope that Gujarat will make changes in their playing XI. Well, now it has to be seen who wins in this match.

Pitch and weather reports

The pitch at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai is a balanced pitch. The fast bowlers have got a lot of help in the initial matches. Along with this, the batsmen also get a lot of help on this pitch. The captain who wins the toss will prefer to bowl first but if this match takes place in the day, then batting first can also be seen. At the same time, talking about the weather, the temperature is expected to be around 33 to 29 degrees. The rain is expected to be 0%. The wind will blow at a speed of 19 km/h.
