Chennai Super Kings have crashed out of the Indian Premier League 2022, whereas Gujarat Titans sit at the top of the league. These two teams’ respective situations could not have been any different, yet they meet at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on May 15 (Sunday). The match is to begin at 3:30pm IST.

Teams Status

Chennai Super Kings

Even if only with slim hopes, Chennai Super Kings would still have been in the hunt for a playoff spot, had they not lost their last game. Unfortunately, they did lose, and not to anyone but their familiar nemesis Mumbai Indians.

It wasn’t even any defeat. It was humiliation at the hands of the worst side in the league this season.

The defending champions got bundled out for a mere 97 runs and even though they did make the chase difficult, they eventually lost by five wickets and more than five overs to spare.

They can now use the final two games to try out new talent, build new combinations and perhaps, maybe even say goodbye to their iconic captain MS Dhoni, who will turn 41 this year and may not be active in IPL 2023.

Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans snapped a run of two straight defeats in their last game with a win over fellow high-flyers Lucknow Super Giants.

It was a low scoring affair, in which Gujarat scored a mere 144, largely thanks to their opener Shubman Gill’s 63, before their spin duo of Rashid Khan (four-for) and Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore combined to take six wickets and rolled over Lucknow on 82 runs.

Thanks to that win, they currently hold a two-point lead over Lucknow. It’s a good cushion but it obviously can be erased as Lucknow are hot on their heels and also have two matches in hand to go with their marginally better net run rate.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Gujarat Titans to win @ 1.784

Gujarat are the league leaders and they just crushed the team sitting second on the points table. Chennai, on the other hand, sit second to bottom and are a contender to take home the dreaded wooden spoon. It’s an easy choice to make then. The odds for this play have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Shubman Gill to score more than 24.5 runs @ 1.87

Shubman Gill is in good form and has scored half centuries in each of his last two outings. Against a CSK side that is out of the tournament and is dealing with reports of its management’s separate rifts with Ravindra Jadeja and Ambati Rayudu. This is the perfect time for their opposition’s best players to embarrass them, and thus, this bet, for which odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


When these teams met earlier in the tournament, Gujarat won but only just as they chased down the 170-run target with one ball to spare. David Miller (94*) and Rashid Khan (40) had gone berserk in that game. We see the same result albeit a few less bumps.
