CSK vs GT: Match Preview, Pitch Report and Dream 11 Team for Match 7 of IPL 2024

As we move towards match number 7, we will get to witness the rematch of the last IPL Final that took place between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Giants at Ahmedabad where we all were on edge of our seats with no nails left on our fingers!

CSK came to the top by dethroning the defending champions Gujarat Titans with Dhoni and his team becoming the most successful captain and franchise. This time the challenge will be bigger for Gujarat as they have got a new and fresher side with some good raw talent and CSK is also moving towards the phase of transition.

Both the teams have started the tournament with a win, especially the way Gujarat came back vs Mumbai, which will have satisfied them a lot and can become a tournament booster for them.

Team Preview

Chennai Super Kings

The defending champions have started their journey well again this season with a new captain in Ruturaj Gaikwad under the guidance of great MS Dhoni. Chennai, as always, will be the favourites to win this encounter as Chepauk is their den and defending them at Chepauk has not been a case of putting jam on bread. The spin duo of Jadeja and Theekshana will play their part and also Rachin Ravindra can flex his arms when needed and is a good bat at the top. Shivam Dube as a spin hitter and middle overs enforcer along with Darryl Mitchell, one of the best all-round batters in the world currently with some power at death with Thala coming late and Jadeja with his sword ready.

Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans have been like a team that has always come by fighting against the odds as very few predicted that they would qualify for the playoffs of the 2022 IPL they won it under Hardik and then people called it a fluke so the Gujarat franchise made to another finals, this just shows that how good they have been. The Major credit should go to Ashish Nehra for this brilliant work as he has played his part like a proper coach and football manager. Gujarat is led by young prospect Shubman Gill who is making his name nowadays and bringing attraction. GT has got spin wizard Rashid Khan and smart operator Kishore who will vary the pace and can bat a bit. GT has got David Miller as their finisher who has been in great Knick off late and our beloved Rahul Tewatia who has been just unreal for Gujarat. Omarzai is an interesting prospect.

Pitch Report

Chepauk is a traditional slow wicket in India with low bounce and some unexpected nipp of the subject. Fast bowlers can also be dangerous if you keep your lengths tight, and spinners have to use their angles well, the likes of Sai Kishore can do wonders here.

  • Matches Won Batting First – 46
  • Matches Won Fielding first -31
  • Highest score Successfully Chased – 206

Key Players

  1. Ravindra Jadeja: For CSK to do well, Jadeja has to fire and if he delivers CSK will win it in most situations considering the fact that he is a brilliant batsman and bowler along with being the best fielder in the world.
  2. Mohit Sharma: Mohit with his special variations and laser-guided Yorkers will be effective and effective at the death overs as the back of the handball will be key.
  3. The battle of 2 young leaders: In our 3rd point we do not have particular players but we will be looking for the battle of 2 Indian future-looking stars who are under the guidance of their ex-captain or coaches. It will be interesting to see which young opener comes to the top.
