Chennai Super Kings will take on the reigning champions Gujarat Titans in the final clash of the season at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, on May 27, Sunday. The 16th edition of the IPL comes full circle as the teams that clashed in the season opener will eventually finish it. Both Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Hardik Pandya sides put up some brilliant games that helped them reach this stage. Since there have been speculations that this might be MS Dhoni’s last IPL, his team would surely want to give him a victorious send off with their fifth trophy. On the other hand, the defending champions wouldn’t wish to give away their title by taking down the Super Kings in their final clash.
Gujarat and Chennai have clashed against each other twice in this season and have an overall rivalry of four matches in the entire Indian Premier League. Speaking of their toss battles, Gujarat Titans lead 3-1, with winning both the tosses in this season. These records make us say that the defending champions will have an upper hand in the toss war and make it to the top of this battle during the CSK vs GT final.
MS Dhoni-led side were the first ones to make it to the top two as they defeated the reigning champions in the Qualifier 1 of the season. On the other hand, Gujarat Titans defeated Mumbai Indians to secure their spot in the summit clash. Chennai Super Kings will surely be on a confident side having defeated Gujarat Titans recently. However, the overall record puts the Titans on a higher pedestal, and the four-time champions will be wary of their records against the team as well as their games at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. Not only this, but their only clash at the venue also saw the Titans emerging victorious, and hence, they have an advantage. All the odds make us believe that the Titans will take down the Super Kings and win the champions title for the second time in the row.
Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
The average first inning score at the Narendra Modi Stadium is 168. However, if we look at the recent records, the score has risen to 187 in the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League. Hence, we can expect the first inning score in the final IPL 2023 battle to range close to 170-180, while the powerplay score can reach 45-50.
