The 29th game of IPL 2022 will be played between Gujrat Titans and Chennai Super Kings on 17th April at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium (MCA), Pune. The match is scheduled to start from 7:30 pm onwards. This will be the first game between GT and CSK. Both teams have won their last games comfortably. GT beat Rajasthan Royals by 37 runs while CSK won against RCB by 23 runs.
GT is having a dream start in their first season of the IPL. They have been brilliant on all fronts so far. They have registered four victories in five matches and are leading the points table with 8 points. 2 of their victories have come while chasing the target while they have defended the target in the remaining two matches. GT’s skipper Hardik Pandya is leading on all three fronts. The all-rounder has scored 228 runs so far at an average of 76 and a strike rate of 136.53. He has been economical with the ball too with 4 wickets. GT’s success is partially due to the effective use of their uncapped players.
CSK have finally ended their dry run by registering a 23 runs victory against RCB in their last game. The current champions are having a rough tournament after losing their main bowler Deepak Chahar due to an injury. They have just 2 points in 5 games and are placed 9th in the points table. They should be happy after registering the highest total of this season against RCB. Shivam Dube has scored 207 runs for CSK at a strike rate of 176.92. Along with Dube, Robin Uthappa is in the top 10 leading run-scorer of IPL2022. Uthappa is scoring at a strike rate of 163.03 which is the key behind them scoring freely in the powerplay.
