Gujarat are bidding to strengthen its top position when they face CSK. Gujarat Titans have been impressive in the IPL 2022 with five out of four wins and will keep a firm hold on their winning run as they were regarded as the least favorites to be inside the top four, but their composure and brilliance in the matches have made them a team to look out for. 

CSK eventually registered their first win of the tournament and can now take a deep breath. They will be hoping to flourish in the next game as they face a robust team that currently looks unbeatable in IPL 2022.

Must picks

Gujarat Titans' Lockie Ferguson have worked well in the bowling department as he has wreaked havoc against batters in the matches and have taken nine wickets so far and deserves to be in the fantasy team. 

Hardik Pandya has been the best batsman for Gujarat as he has bagged 228 runs in just five matches and looks to spearhead Gujarat in the batting department in the entire tournament. Hence he deserves a spot in fantasy 11. 

The CSK’s pivotal batsman Robin Uthappa has been a marquee player in the last five games for Chennai; he has risen to the occasion and delivered in the last match as Chennai claimed its first maiden victory in IPL 2022, as the reason he has been selected in fantasy team. Shivam Dube is another player who could bolster the fantasy line-up.

 Prediction

Gujarat Titans have been forced to be reckoned with in this IPL; during the auction, it looked the team couldn’t buy quality players and will have its shortcomings in the matches. But they lived up to their expectations and delivered on the four occasions, and now look like a formidable team, which other teams want to avoid, and Chennai just won their first game in the competition. 

We know from the past that the Chennai Super Kings are a side that can be an unstoppable side once in the groove. The batters have clicked well for the four-times champions. Yes, they will have a huge task cut out in form of Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, and Mohammad Shami. However, we feel CSK might just get past them.
