The last five battles of the GT vs CSK encounter have been really close, with the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) having a slight upper hand with a 3-2 margin over the Gujarat Titans (GT). The hosts, at the Narendra Modi Stadium, are at the bottom of the points table.

Just like the batting performances, the bowling too is very vital for both these sides. Chennai used their spin weapons in a better shape with the best economy of 7.34 in the middle overs of the IPL 2024, while the Gujarat side had an economy of 8.61 in this 7-15 over phase.

The visitors, going into the GT vs CSK fixture, have made the third-most inroads (30) in the middle overs in 11 innings, while the Titans have the lowest (22) wickets, even with the likes of quality spinners- Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmed, and others.

It’s the hardest job to nail sixes against the Super Kings bowlers in the middle overs, as they have given away only 20 over boundaries in the duration, while Gujarat have seen 33 sixes being smashed. Both sides are at the bottom when it comes to giving runs from seven to 15 overs.

Chennai have spent the least runs (727) in this time frame of the IPL 2024, in 99 overs, while the Titans have seen 788 runs in 91.3 overs of the time, before the GT vs CSK clash. Both these sides have also costed the least number of boundaries in this period.

While the Chennai are the best, conceding 48 fours, the Titans have given away only 53 boundaries in this period. With Ahmedabad, it will be interesting if the 2022 champions again provide a spin attack for the contest.
