Chennai Super Kings Team Preview

The Chennai Super Kings have won the IPL title four times, with their most recent win just last season. They have plenty of further experience in the final having been runners-up a total of five times. With one of the most consistent histories of the IPL, they have finished 10 times in a podium position. Now, with just 8 points to their name and a negative Net Run Rate of -0.181, things have taken a turn.

This was a must-win game for the Super Kings, and had their hopes pinned on a successful result for them, for any chance of progressing. Now, their fate of whether they could reach the Play-Offs has now been sealed, after a convincing defeat delivered by the Mumbai Indians. This will come as a huge blow, especially after their superb 91 run win over the Delhi Capitals in match 55. What a difference between the two games, with a high of 208 and a low of 97. However, it just wasn’t on the cards for the Super Kings, and it seemed as if the batters just didn’t turn up for this one. The Indians were able to blow through the top order, with Devon Conway out for a duck, Moeen Ali out without scoring from two balls, and Robin Uthappa scoring just one run from 6 balls. Ruturaj Gaikwad was the next to be dismissed at 17/4, scoring 7 runs off 6 balls. The middle order was just slightly better, but only just. Ambati Rayudu scored 10 runs off 14 balls, Shivam Dube scored 10 runs off 9, and Dwayne Bravo scored 12 off 15. Skipper MS Dhoni was able to add the highest total of runs to the Super Kings’ total, finishing 36 off 33. The batters crumbled quickly after the 12 over, and the Indians were able to dismiss Simarjeet Singh, Maheesh Theekshana, and Mukesh Choudhary. Respectively, the batters finished 2 off 3 balls, 0 off 3, and 4 off 4.

Credit is due for the bowlers, who all finished with economy figures all lower than 10. Simarjeet Singh and Mukesh Choudhary were the two players out of the unit to deliver the maximum overs, and between them managed to grab four wickets within Mumbai’s Powerplay. This would have certainly been enough to rock their confidence. Singh finished 1/22 while Choudhary finished 3/23. Bravo conceded 16 runs within his two overs spell, while Maheesh Theekshana conceded 24 runs in his three overs spell. Both ended with an economy of 8. Ali was the most expensive player at 9.27 conceding 17 runs, however, he managed to grab a wicket during his 1.5 overs spell.

If you are making a match prediction today, there are many IPL betting markets that are available. The two most common markets are for the top batsman and bowler, and it can be helpful to take into consideration some statistics to make your decision. Devon Conway’s batting average plummeted from being the best of the tournament at 77.0, to fifth best at 57.75. However, this is still considerably better than S Dube’s batting average of 39.80. RD Gaikwad has scored the most runs of the squad, currently at 313, and has the reached the highest score in an innings just painfully shy of a century at 99. Moeen Ali has the best bowling economy of the squad at 7.06, followed by Maheesh Theekshana on 7.45, and Ravindra Jadeja on 7.51. Theekshana has the best bowling figures at 4/33, followed by Choudhary with 4/46.

Gujarat Titans Team Preview

The Gujarat Titans have come into the 2022 tournament with style and have declared themselves to be a formidable force! Their 62 win run over the other new Indian Premier League franchise, the Lucknow Super Giants, has sealed their place in the Play-Offs. The Titans managed to maintain pressure over their opponents throughout the tournament and currently sit top of the points table with 18 points. The squad has only lost three of their 12 matches so far and have a Net Run Rate of +0.385. Depending on how they play their next two matches, they could either get a pass directly into the final if they maintain their lead, or if they place second, could have up to two chances of reaching the final match.

Shubman Gill gave the Titans a strong start by scoring 63 runs off 49 balls. His performance was enough to secure the Man of the Match award. However, the rest of the top order wasn’t particularly lengthy with Wriddhiman Saha being dismissed after just 11 balls while scoring 5 runs, and Matthew Wade facing just 7 balls while scoring 10 runs. Hardik Pandya, the skipper of the Titans, scored 26 runs off 24 balls after his dismissal from Avesh Khan who delivered the ball short outside off at 129.7 kph. David Miller and Rahul Tewatia pulled some momentum back for the squad, finishing on 26 off 24 and 22 off 16 (not out) for Tewatia.

Looking at the bowling unit, they bowled with good energy and managed to restrict the Lucknow Super Giants to just 82. Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore performed incredibly well taking two wickets and conceding just seven runs in his two overs. This is enough to place him in the number one spot for the best bowling average of the tournament at just 3.5. Rashid Khan managed to grab four wickets while conceding just 24 runs in his 3.5 overs spell, while Mohammed Shami took one wicket while conceding five runs for an exceedingly low economy of 1.67 for his three overs spell. The most expensive player was Yash Dayal with an economy of 12.0, however he did grab two wickets in his two overs spell.

David Miller has the best batting average of the team at 55.33, and also has the highest score in an innings at 94 (not out).
