Teams Status

Gujarat Titans:

Gujarat Titans enter the contest against the Chennai Super Kings as firm favorites as they are one of the most in-form teams in the competition, having won four out of five matches.

The management would be hoping to see the players continue producing similar kinds of performance and help the team in securing a spot in the playoffs in their inaugural campaign. In their previous outing, Titans defeated Rajasthan Royals by 37 runs.

Chennai Super Kings:

Chennai Super Kings will enter the contest against the Gujrat Titans as an underdog because of a poor start to their campaign.

After the first five matches, the defending champions have just won one match and suffered four defeats. The management would be pushing the players to put a much better display in the matches to come if they are to secure a place in the next round.

In their previous outing, the Super Kings defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 23 runs.

Chennai is depending on their batting to get them over the line as their bowling is clearly struggling. In the batting unit, left-hander Shivam Dube is leading the charts with 207 runs at an average of 51.75 along with the strike-rate of 176.92.

He is well supported by veteran right-hander Robin Uthappa who has scored 194 runs at an average of 38.80 along with the strike-rate of 163.02.
