IPL 2023: GT vs CSK, Match 1: Pitch Report, Probable XI and Match Prediction


Gujarat Titans vs Chennai Super Kings, Match Prediction

The highly-anticipated Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 is all set to begin with a battle royale between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on March 31.

Gujarat, who debuted in the previous edition, showcased brilliant all-round cricket and ended up winning the IPL 2022 title. Chennai, on the other hand, didn’t have a good season. Considering their overall presence in the league, having won 4 titles, CSK will be looking to turn things around this year.

Pitch report:

The track at Narendra Modi Stadium is generally considered to be batting-friendly with even bounce and a good pace. Though, the pitch tends to slow down as the game progresses, which brings the spinner into play, especially in the second half.
