Chennai have won the first qualifier against Gujarat but it is the Titans who have an edge when it comes to this venue. They have won five of their last eight here including three in a row. We are staying away from the winner and looking at the opening partnership market. It is the Chennai Super Kings who have an edge there. I am backing Chennai to post the highest opening partnership. A small wager can be put on Shubman Gill top-scoring for Gujarat.

  • Chennai Super Kings have posted the highest opening partnership in 11 of their last 13 matches (IPL)
  • Gujarat Titans have conceded the highest opening partnership in 4 of their last 5 matches (IPL)
  • Shubman Gill top-scored for Gujarat Titans in 5 of their last 6 matches (IPL)
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad has scored 50+ in his 4 innings against Gujarat Titans (IPL)

Head to Head


There have been four matches between these sides so far with Gujarat winning three and Chennai one. The most recent match was in the first qualifier in Chennai where the Super Kings won by 15 runs.

Chennai Super Kings Form


Chennai finished 2nd in the regular season and then advanced to the final by defeating Gujarat Titans by 15 runs in the first qualifier.

This is the 10th final for the Super Kings who are looking for a record-equalling fifth IPL title. They would bank on their biggest strength – openers – to achieve this.

Ruturaj Gaikwad (564 runs) and Devon Conway (625) have been exceptional at the top for Chennai. It has been a collective effort with the ball, led from the front by surprise package Tushar Deshpande (21 wickets).

Chennai Super Kings Team News


Deepak Chahar hobbled a little in the final stages of the first qualifier and remains the only injury concern for Chennai Super Kings.

Gujarat Titans Form


Gujarat Titans reached the final after defeating Mumbai Indians in the second qualifier by a comfortable 62 runs. It was a masterful performance led by Shubman Gill (129) and Mohit Sharma (5/10).

The Titans would once again look at their star opener to do the bulk of scoring. Gill enjoys this venue scoring seven 50+ scores in his last ten innings here across formats.

Bowling has been about the troika of Mohammed Shami (28 wickets), Rashid Khan (27) and Mohit Sharma (24). Incidentally, all three are in the reckoning for the ‘Purple Cap’ award of the season.

Gujarat Titans Team News


Gujarat played Josh Little ahead of Dasun Shanaka in the previous match and it paid dividends. The left-armer could continue once again while Sai Sudharsan may once again get a game looking at his calm influence at number three.

Verdict

Chennai and Gujarat have been the two best teams in this IPL season and little wonder that they are in the final. The Super Kings remain the emotional favourites due to MS Dhoni’s presence and this being his likely last year. Yet, Gujarat have the form and their record at this venue suggests they are going to be tough to beat.

I am backing Chennai to post the highest opening partnership though, considering the rich form of Ruturaj and Conway. I am also putting a small wager on Shubman Gill topping the Gujarat batting charts.
