With the league stage of the Indian Premier League (IPL) coming to a conclusion, it’s time for the playoffs to get underway. On Tuesday, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) take on Gujarat Titans (GT) in Qualifier 1 of IPL 2023 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, and all eyes will be on whether MS Dhoni and Co can seal a direct passage to Sunday’s final against an impressive Hardik Pandya-led side.

Shubman Gill (680 runs) has been GT’s biggest positive this season, and CSK’s primary aim will not only be to break the opening GT partnership, but to get rid of Shubman as early as possible. Gill picked up from where he left off last season, notching up two centuries and four fifties this season.

As far as bowling is concerned, both Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan continue to lead the Purple Cap standings with 24 wickets apiece. While the duo have been part of the GT setup since their debut season last year, the presence of another Afghan, Noor Ahmad, has been a welcome sign for Hardik Pandya and Co.
For CSK, on the other hand, Deepak Chahar’s recent form is something to be pleased about. In the last four matches, the pacer has scalped 10 wickets and along with that, he has been effective in the powerplay phase.
CSK also have a potential finisher in Shivam Dube. The 29-year-old has amassed 385 runs from 13 matches at a strike-rate of 160, and this includes worthwhile cameos along with three fifties. As far as runs are concerned, this has been Dube’s most productive IPL season yet.
