Set to unfold on May 10th at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the 59th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 will witness a showdown between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). For Gujarat Titans, this season has been one marred by disappointment. With just four victories from their eleven outings, they find themselves teetering on the brink of elimination.

Anchored at the bottom of the points table, their eight-point haul is accompanied by a disheartening net run rate of -1.320. In stark contrast, Chennai Super Kings have enjoyed a more favourable trajectory in the tournament.  Having secured victories in six of their eleven matches, they currently occupy the fourth spot on the points table.

With a commendable tally of 12 points and a net run rate standing at +0.700, they are well-positioned for a shot at playoff contention. As the stage is set for the clash, the history between these two teams adds an extra layer of intrigue. Having each triumphed in three encounters out of the six previous matchups, the rivalry is evenly poised, promising another exhilarating contest.

Anticipation is high for yet another nail-biting encounter, with expectations of a high-scoring affair looming large. Traditionally, the trend has favoured the team winning the toss and opting to field first, suggesting a potentially action-packed spectacle. Despite potential wear and tear on the pitch, it remains conducive to run-scoring, setting the stage for an enthralling battle. With the head-to-head record currently deadlocked at three wins apiece, both teams will be eager to seize the advantage and claim supremacy in this pivotal encounter.

Sai Sudharsan has demonstrated competence against CSK’s premier bowler, Ravindra Jadeja, managing 32 runs off 21 balls without losing his wicket. Additionally, he has faced off against Tushar Deshpande, one of CSK’s standout performers this season, with confidence in previous encounters. The Tamil Nadu batsman’s past performances suggest he could be a key asset for GT in their crucial match against CSK.

Probable XI: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (c), Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rahul Tewatia, Shahrukh Khan, Rashid Khan, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma.

CSK finds themselves grappling with the absence of key players like Deepak Chahar, Mustafizur Rahman, and Matheesha Pathirana, who are sidelined due to injuries and national team commitments. However, Shardul Thakur could prove to be a vital addition, especially given his track record against GT’s skipper, Shubman Gill. Thakur has enjoyed success against Gill in the past, dismissing him twice while conceding just 36 runs off 31 balls, potentially tipping the scales in CSK’s favour. 

Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahane, Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Daryl Mitchell, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (wk), Mitchell Santner, Shardul Thakur, Richard Gleeson, Tushar Deshpande

Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Shubman Gill (vc), Sai Sudharshan, Ravindra Jadeja, Daryll Mitchell, MS Dhoni, David Miller, Rashid Khan, Richard Gleeson, Shardul Thakur, Mohit Sharma
