During the previous evening game in Ahmedabad, Gujarat Titans (GT) faced a heavy six-wicket defeat with almost 11 overs to spare. In the GT vs CSK clash, will the hosts provide another slow and low track for the Chennai Super Kings?

The defending champions have been the best side in the death overs bowling, with the best economy rate of 10.41 in 11 innings, picking up 21 wickets during this phase. They also have conceded only 23 sixes in the period, the least among the ten franchises.

However, Gujarat have struggled in this department before the GT vs CSK clash, with the third most economy of 11.61 in nine innings, and have seen the back of 20 players in this period. They also have conceded 33 sixes in this period, along with 27 boundaries.

Let’s examine the batting of these two teams. Chennai have nailed 559 runs in 11 innings of the period, at a strike rate of 181.49, which sits at the middle of the ten teams, and they also have smashed the third-most sixes (38) in this duration.

On the other hand, Gujarat have hoisted 506 runs in during the last five overs, with a strike rate of 171.53, this isn’t quite valuable compared to how the other teams are going towards the backend of the innings. Only 23 sixes have come off their bat in the phase, which marked how bad they have been in the period.

This is going to be the do-or-die moment for the Titans. If they slip in this GT vs CSK clash, they will be officially eliminated of the playoffs, for the very first time in their history of the league. Chennai would love to be ahead for the top-four finish.
