Gujarat Titans vs Chennai Super Kings, Indian Premier League 2024, 59th Match Match Details, Schedule, Summary


7.10pm So it seems like Rizvi will come in for CSK as the Impact Player. GT could get in Darshan Nalkande.

“If Dhoni can bat only for 10-12 balls, why does it only have to be the last 2 overs? A quickfire 25 off 10 in the middle overs has the same impact. No? ” TCJ, they also want him batting against pace ideally.

7pm Stop the press. Ruturaj Gaikwad has finally won the toss, only his second this IPL. And CSK will bowl. Gaikwad feels the pitch will be sticky to start off with. Rachin Ravindra comes in for Richard Gleeson.

Wriddhiman Saha misses out with a niggle, opening the door for Matthew Wade. And Tyagi comes in to keep the overseas players down to four.

Gujarat Titans Shubman Gill*, B Sai Sudharsan, M Shahrukh Khan, DA Miller, MS Wade†, R Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, UT Yadav, MM Sharma, Kartik Tyagi

Impact subs Abhinav Manohar, Sandeep Warrier, BR Sharath, Darshan Nalkande, Jayant Yadav

Chennai Super Kings RD Gaikwad*, R Ravindra, DJ Mitchell, S Dube, MM Ali, RA Jadeja, MS Dhoni†, MJ Santner, SN Thakur, TU Deshpande, Simarjeet Singh

Impact subs Ajinkya Rahane, Shaik Rasheed, A Avanish, Sameer Rizvi, Mukesh Choudhary

6.58pm Two minutes to go to the toss, and we see Kartik Tyagi getting his GT cap.

6.50pm If you are jittery waiting for the game to begin and don’t quite know what to do with the next 40 minutes, there are worse things you can do than reading this Rashid Khan interview.

In the past when I was bowling a bad delivery, people were getting singles. And now they are going for a big shot and scoring runs. It’s not like in the past I haven’t bowled bad balls. I bowled full tosses and got wickets.

6.40pm If it is CSK, it has to be all about MS Dhoni, right? But Dhoni makes sure he comes out to bat only for the last two overs. Who knows if CSK might have rested him had Devon Conway had been available? He is carrying a side strain, and he can’t bat for long. Now they don’t have a keeper-batter who can give him a break. So they make do with they have, and max it out. Here’s what their coach Stephen Fleming had to say about the situation.

“Now, one of our challenges is that we got a good back-up keeper [Aravelly Avanish], but he’s no MS Dhoni. We want to keep MS Dhoni on the field doing what he does best, which is the last two-three-four overs with the bat, and his keeping and his ability… the sheer technical advice for the new captain is really important.”

6.30pm We are onto Match 59 already. Time has flown. It is GT hosting CSK tonight. GT need to win to stay alive. CSK want to win in order to move to No. 3. If they win, they go level with SRH on points, but have a better net-run-rate. If they lose, their path to the playoffs become trickier. Subplots await us in this rematch of last year’s final. It doesn’t seem like that long ago when these teams last met, but they look completely different units. Welcome to our live commentary.
