In the grand finale of the Indian Premier League 2023, the four-time champions Chennai Super Kings will take on the defending champions Gujarat Titans at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. CSK will go into this all-important encounter after defeating GT at Chepauk comprehensively in the Qualifier 1. Meanwhile, Gujarat brushed aside Mumbai in the Qualifier 2 at home. In this edition of the tournament, both the Super Kings and the Titans have beaten each other once in a relatively close manner, that’s why, the IPL final has all the makings of an enthralling spectacle from start to finish.
Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad have been an incredible pairing at the top of the order for Chennai Super Kings right throughout the IPL 2023. The middle order batters in form for CSK in the lead-up to the grand finale are Shivam Dube and Ajinkya Rahane. The bowling department of Chennai has been quite potent since the introduction of Deepak Chahar in the last few matches, who has been amongst the wickets along with the likes of Tushar Deshpande and Ravindra Jadeja.
Shubman Gill has been in some of his best batting form in the last week or so, for Gujarat Titans, wherein he smashed three centuries in the last four matches in the IPL 2023. Sai Sudharshan and Vijay Shankar are scoring runs in limited opportunities that they have received from the GT management in the middle order. As far as the bowling attack goes, the Titans have the experienced trio of Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, and Mohit Sharma, who have been taking wickets consistently with the ball day in and day out.
