GT vs. CSK IPL 2024 Highlights Latest News


May 11, 2024

Highlights of the Gujarat Titans vs. Chennai Super Kings IPL 2024 match: Daryl Mitchell and Moeen Ali both had fantastic batting efforts, but CSK was 35 runs short of Gujarat Titans’ 232 goal. After losing three early wickets in their chase, CSK’s task of reaching the total was always going to be challenging. Despite their best efforts, middle and lower order batters were 35 runs short. Gujarat Titans win the game with two points, and CSK will need to put in a lot of work to qualify for the playoffs.

Gujarat Titans have amassed 231/2 in their 20 overs thanks to a fantastic batting performance by Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan, who shared the greatest opening partnership in IPL history with 210 runs. To maintain their chances of making the playoffs, Chennai Super Kings must win the game and earn two points by pursuing 232.
After winning the toss, CSK’s Ruturaj Gaikwad chooses to bowl first against GT. Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans are playing at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium.

The Chennai Super Kings are currently following the same route as the Gujarat Titans did when the season first started. The loss of their whole pace attack, an essential element in their pursuit of a postseason berth, has been a big setback for them. In the 2024 Indian Premier League, Matheesha Pathirana, Mustafizur Rahman, and Deepak Chahar—who had the best economy rate in the middle overs (8) and the second-best at the death (10.43)—had played a significant role.

In a same vein, Mohammed Shami was crucial to GT, but his absence due to an ankle injury and subsequent surgery has created a hole. Even after attempting to bridge the gap with substitutes like Josh Little, Spencer Johnson, and Azmatullah Omarzai, GT has not been able to do so. Fast bowlers can affect the course of a game, particularly if they have unusual motions or extraordinary talent with the new ball or variations. There is a big problem when they are not there.

Sadly, GT hasn’t been able to get over this obstacle. Their tournament could be over if they lose again on Friday. On the other hand, CSK has to win.With a poetic twist since it happens to be the same location where Mahendra Singh Dhoni earlier declared his want to call it a day, they are in a better position to mount a playoff campaign and possibly even make it to the championship game. That would make a fitting story, wouldn’t it?
