In the 29th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Gujarat Titans (GT) will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Sunday.
With four wins out of five matches, the Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat are sitting right at the top spot in the points table. On the other hand, Ravindra Jadeja’s Chennai are positioned at the second last place with only one victory out of five fixtures.
The track and conditions at MCA stadium in Pune are quite different from what the venues in Mumbai offer. The dew is less likely to impact the game here; hence batting first would be an ideal choice. Also, three of the five IPL 2022 matches have been won by the team batting first at this venue.
Gujarat Titans: Matthew Wade (wk), Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya (c), David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami, Yash Dayal
Chennai Super Kings: Robin Uthappa, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Chris Jordan, Maheesh Theekshana, Mukesh Choudhary
