A disappointing start to the 2022 Indian Premier League season has seen Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians languish at the bottom of the standings, despite having a combined nine championships between them. Both of these sides have a chance to win, but they must perform at their highest level at all times. Both teams will be looking to win their second game of the tournament when they face off against each other in Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans. Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune will host the match on 17 April 2022.
GT vs CSK Team Previews
Gujarat Titans are emerging as one of the tournament’s surprise teams, having suffered just one defeat in their last five games. They have not only established themselves as the team to beat thus far in the tournament, but they have done so with a casual air about them. Currently, they lead the table with eight points and a net run rate of 0.450, which is quite impressive.
While the Titans’ bowling is their strongest suit, their battering has pleasantly surprised their fans. Some of the most impressive performances in recent games have come from players like Hardik Pandya, Shuman Gill, Rahul Tewatia, and David Miller. When it comes to the bowling attack, Mohammad Shami and Lokie Ferguson have been outstanding. For the middle overs, they have a well-established bowling attack with Rashid Khan on hand. To beat them, all they’d have to do is keep playing the way they have been. If they succeed, however, it could be extremely difficult.
Gujarat Titans Playing 11

Chennai Super Kings
While the Chennai Super Kings started the season with four straight losses, they were able to turn things around with a crucial win over Royal Challengers Bangalore to keep their playoff hopes alive. They are currently ninth in the standings, but a win here could have a major impact on their future.
With their top order performing so well, Chennai Super Kings can be a tough team to beat on paper. He could make the difference in this upcoming match thanks to the addition of Maheesh Theekshana. If Chennai Super Kings are able to replicate their performance against the Royal Challengers, it will be extremely difficult for anyone else to get past them.

GT vs CSK Betting Tips
As a result, this is a match that matters to both teams, though for very different reasons. While the Gujarat Titans would prefer to keep their lead, Chennai Super Kings would prefer to get into the middle of things. As a result of their respective victories in their most recent matches, both teams come into this game full of confidence. Chennai Super Kings have a better risk-reward ratio than most other teams, so we’ll bet on them to win this match. You should too.
