CSK vs GT: The 62nd match of the Indian T20 League 2022 will have Chennai Super Kings take on Gujarat Titans on Sunday at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Chennai is currently sitting second from the bottom of the points table and is already knocked out of the race for the playoffs. They exhibited a dismal performance with the bat against Mumbai.
They were bowled out for just 97 runs in the first innings. None of the players made an impact with the bat, barring MS Dhoni. CSK kept losing wickets at short intervals and never got the momentum they needed. MS Dhoni tried his best and played right till the end but he ran out of partners in the end.
The CSK skipper remained unbeaten on 36 runs in 33 balls, a knock which was laced with 4 fours and 2 sixes. Mumbai Indians, in reply, chased down the score in 15.5 overs. Young pacers, Mukesh Chaudhary and Simranjeet Singh had the opposition in trouble as they reduced MI to 33 for 4. However, CSK couldn’t pick a wicket in the next 6 overs. Heading into the next game, they would be looking to work on their batting.
On the other hand, Gujarat Titans are sitting at the top of the points table. In 12 matches, they have managed to secure 9 wins and are coming into this game on the back of a brilliant 62-run win over Lucknow. Riding on a sensational knock from Shubman Gill (63 off 49), Gujarat managed to score 144 runs in the first innings.
Rashid Khan then produced a stellar spell of 4 for 24 in 2.5 overs to help Gujarat bundle out of Lucknow Super Giants for just 82 runs. The likes of Yash Dayal and R Sai Kishore also picked two wickets each. Heading into the next game, Hardik Pandya and Co. would be looking to continue the winning momentum.
