GT vs CSK Match Preview- IPL 2024, Match 59

Gujarat Titans 

Gujarat Titans are placed last on the points table. MI's win over SRH have pushed them to the bottom of the points table. They have a lot to do if they are to make the playoffs from here on and winning all three games even might not be enough. GT have missed Mohd Shami with the ball and their batters have not responded as expected. 

Shubman Gill's poor run of form is a major concern for the side who have not batted well in the last few games. Senior players David Miller and Wriddhiman Saha also need to step on the gas if GT are to make the most of the opportunity they have. They suffered a big loss against CSK in the previous game as well.

Shubman Gill (c), David Miller, Matthew Wade, Wriddhiman Saha, Kane Williamson, Abhinav Manohar, B. Sai Sudharsan, Darshan Nalkande, Vijay Shankar, Jayant Yadav, Rahul Tewatia, Noor Ahmad, Sai Kishore, Rashid Khan, Joshua Little, Mohit Sharma, Azmatullah Omarzai, Umesh Yadav, Shahrukh Khan, Sushant Mishra, Kartik Tyagi, Manav Suthar, Spencer Johnson, Sandeep Warrier, BR Sharath

Chennai Super Kings 

CSK returned to winning ways after beating Punjab Kings in the previous game. They ended a five-match losing streak against the side. At this phase of the competition, a side like CSK needs what to do with their roles well defined for the players.

Their bowling attack has weakened a bit with the absence of Matheesha Pathirana and Mustafizur Rahman who have left the side now for national commitments. Ravindra Jadeja and Tushar Deshpande stepped up in the last game and need to continue their form going. 

CSK Squad 

Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali, Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Shivam Dube, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Ravindra Jadeja, Ajay Mandal, Mukesh Choudhary, Ajinkya Rahane, Shaik Rasheed, Mitchell Santner, Simarjeet Singh, Nishant Sindhu, Prashant Solanki, Maheesh Theekshana, Rachin Ravindra, Shardul Thakur, Daryl Mitchell, Sameer Rizvi, Mustafizur Rahman, Avanish Rao Aravelly

GT vs CSK Key Battles

Ruturaj Gaikwad vs Mohit Sharma 

The veteran pacer will be up against the CSK skipper and needs to dismiss him quickly to give his team a chance of winning the game. 

Shivam Dube vs Rashid Khan 

Spin has been Dube's undoing in the last two games against Punjab Kings. Rashid with his experience should have read that and should back him to dismiss the CSK big-hitter. 

Shubman Gill vs Tushar Deshpande 

Deshpande has been taking wickets inside the powerplay and he will be targeting the wicket of the GT skipper who has not been in good form in the last few games. 

Shahrukh Khan / David Miller vs Ravindra Jadeja 

Jadeja picked up three for 20 in the last match against Punjab Kings. With the GT big-hitters looking to take him on, he has a chance to dismiss them in the game. This should be an exciting match-up.

GT vs CSK Weather and Pitch Report

The weather conditions will be hot and humid with temperatures around 32 degrees in the evening. There is no chance of rain with the humidity levels around 40 percent expected. 

Talking about the pitch, so far 200 have been chased twice by visiting teams. PBKS and RCB have chased down big totals exploiting the weakness of the GT bowling attack. Dew plays a big part at this venue with teams preferring to chase. 


This is a must-win game for Gujarat Titans as said earlier to stay alive in the playoffs race. A loss here will end their campaign. CSK having found their winning mojo might be hard to beat by opposition teams from here on
