GT vs CSK : MATCH-01, IPL2023
MATCH – 01
CHENNAI SUPER KINGS
LOCATION – Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad
RESULT – Gujarat Titans Won by 5 Wickets
Captain of the Gujarat Titans, Hardik Pandya: “Obviously very pleased with the result. In the end, we did put ourselves in a challenging situation, but Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan performed admirably. We were pleased in the middle of the innings because CSK had been playing well and appeared to be getting 200 or more runs at one point, but we took those two wickets to turn things around. Having Rashid Khan on your team is a tremendous advantage since he will help you win wickets and score some runs. We must assume responsibility as batters to relieve strain on the lower order when they come to bat. We will work to enhance our shot selection in this area.
The captain of the Chennai Super Kings, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, said: “There was going to be dew, but the batting unit might have done a little bit more. When he times the ball like this, Ruturaj Gaikwad is a pleasure to watch bat. He was excellent the entire time and deserved a century. I believe it is crucial for young people to step up. Raj Hangargekar has a good pace, and I believe he will continue to improve.
