IPL 2023 | GT vs CSK | Will defending champions be able to beat 4-time IPL winners Chennai?

The new season of the world’s biggest T20 league, Indian Premier League gets underway on 31 March at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Defending champions Gujarat Titans who beat Rajasthan Royals in the summit clash of the last edition at the same venue will kick off their campaign against four-time champions Chennai Super Kings. The MS Dhoni-led side had a forgettable outing at IPL 2022 as they finished in the ninth position. Nevertheless, with a new season ready to get underway, CSK will hope for a new beginning. Pitch Report The pitch at Narendra Modi Stadium has been a decent one considering how it has assisted both batters and bowlers. But the wicket does not remain constant throughout the game, it tends to slow down. The boundary dimensions are also pretty standard. Therefore, a thrilling game of cricket is expected when GT and CSK meet on Friday. Playing XI of GT: 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 Playing XI of CSK: Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ben Stokes, Ambati Rayudu, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Deepak Chahar, Maheesh Theekshana, Mukesh Choudhary
