Live Scores: Gujarat Titans vs Chennai Super Kings Live Score
The brand-new season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to get underway on 31 March with a match between defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat will have the home advantage but CSK will fancy their chances having made the necessary changes to their squad. It is to be seen which of the two teams kicks off its campaign with a win.
There are so many big names on both teams but it should be form and consistency that should be preferred when picking the players for the fantasy team. Talking about form, GT’s Shubman Gill is in impeccable touch having piled up runs across formats at the international level. Captain Hardik Pandya has been consistently chipping in both departments (batting and bowling) and so has CSK’s Ravindra Jadeja. Ruturaj Gaikwad of CSK is coming into the tournament on the back of a terrific domestic season.
England’s Ben Stokes is the new addition to the CSK franchise and the English all-rounder is set to play a key role for the four-time champions. In the bowling department, Rashid Khan and Deepak Chahar look like to best options.
Gujarat Titans: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Kane Williamson, Hardik Pandya (c), Matthew Wade, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, R Sai Kishore, Mohammed Shami, Shivam Mavi, Alzarri Joseph
Chennai Super Kings: Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ben Stokes, Ambati Rayudu, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Deepak Chahar, Maheesh Theekshana, Mukesh Choudhary
