Team News And Tournament So Far
Chennai Super Kings
For the first time in their history, Chennai Super Kings have lost their first four IPL games and are currently rooted to the bottom of the points table. It appears as though the leadership change is not going as intended, and they need to reassess their approach immediately. Though they won their previous match, they are still battling it out with MI to avoid a bottom placed finish.
Chennai Super Kings made three changes in their last game and are constantly on the lookout for the ideal combination. If Adam Milne recovers from his side injury,strain he will almost certainly replace Mukesh Choudhary in the eleven. Mooen Ali, Dwane Pretorius, and Mukesh Choudhary came in for Adam Milne, Devon Conway, and Mitchell Santner in their match against Lucknow.
In another major blow to the side, their most expensive recruit - Deepak Chahar has now been ruled out of the whole IPL season due to his niggling injuries, leaving CSK short of genuine quality in their pace attack.
Chennai Super Kings Playing XI (Predicted) Against Punjab Kings :- Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja(c), MS Dhoni(w), Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Dwaine Pretorius, Adam Milne, Tushar Deshpande
The Gujarat Titans, the other new IPL 2022 team, have also done well to build a formidable squad. The most notable acquisition for the Gujarat franchise for their first IPL season was Afghanistan leg spinner Rashid Khan, arguably the best T20I bowler in the world, who has left Sunrisers Hyderabad to spearhead the Titans’ bowling attack, which also includes Indian pacer Mohammed Shami and Kiwi pacer Lockie Ferguson.
In contrast, England's white-ball specialist opener Jason Roy's departure from the IPL 2022 prompted the Gujarat Titans to sign another Afghanistan star, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, as his replacement, while all-rounders Hardik Pandya, Vijay Shankar, and Rahul Tewatia give balance to the side.
In Gujarat Titan’s first match against Lucknow Super Giants, veteran pacer Mohammed Shami (3/25) bowled a blazing opening spell that knocked the wind out of the Lucknow Super Giants' top order before Deepak Hooda (55 off 41 balls) and Ayush Badoni (54 off 41 balls) hit fifties to help Lucknow score 158 for six.
The Gujarat Titans were then led over the line by skipper Hardik Pandya (33), all-rounder Rahul Tewatia (40 not out), Matthew Wade (30), and David Miller (30), for a stunning victory in their first ever IPL match. Though they lost their second match, GT bounced back brilliantly to defeat the Delhi Capitals in their third match for 3 wins in 3 matches. GT have 4 wins in 5 matches now and are currently top of the table, after defeating the previous table toppers Rajasthan Royals.
Gujarat Titans probable playing XI : Shubman Gill, Matthew Wade, Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar, Hardik Pandya (capt), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Varun Aaron, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami.
Betting Preview, Picks And Prediction
To Win The Match
Both these teams won their previous match each, and have equal odds of 1.90 to win this match. We feel Gujarat Titans are the slight favourites though, as they have been consistently good throughout the season.
Top Team Batsman
The Gujarat Titans have many solid batsmen up the order as well, with Shubhman Gill the favourite to be the top scorer at 3.25 after his stunning innings in the previous 2 matches, followed by fellow opener Mathew Wade at 4.00.
Young Ruturaj Gaekwad is the favourite to be Chennai Super Kings’ top batsman in this match with odds of 3.25. He is followed by Moeen Ali at 5.00.
Highest Opening Partnership
Gujarat Titans have odds of 1.85 to have the highest opening partnership as they have Mathew Wade and Shubhman Gill as their openers, and Gill has been the most in form opener in the league so far. CSK also have odds of 1.85 to win this bet as Gaekwad and Uthappa have had some strong starts together, and especiallay Uthappa is in good form.
Top Team Bowler
Rashid Khan is the clear favourite from GT to be their top bowler with odds of 3.75, while Lockie Ferguson had a great outing in the previous match and also has odds of 3.75.
Dwayne Bravo is CSK’s favourite to be the top bowler with odds of just 3.75 , a testament to his wicket taking ability in the death overs. He has been one of the most prolific bowlers in the IPL in recent years. He is followed by Adam Milne at 4.60 and KM Asif at 4.75.
Total Runs In The Match
Odds of there being more than 339.5 runs in this match are 1.83, as per Dafabet. This seems highly achievable as both these teams have some brilliant batsmen and have scored plenty of runs this season.
Individual Player Betting
- Mathew Wade to score more than 23.5 runs also has odds of 1.83, which can be a smart bet as he is a consistent opener. Devon Conway to score more than 24.5 runs has odds of 1.83 as per Dafabet, which is a tempting bet as he would like to give a quick start to his team as always.
- While GT have players like Wade and Hardik Pandya who can hit big, and have odds of 2.62, CSK to hit the most sixes have odds of just 1.72, which is understandable as they have Dhoni and Moeen Ali, along with Devon Conway, who can clear the ropes with ease.
- Rashid Khan to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.20, while Bravo to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.50.
