The inaugural match of TATA IPL 2023 Edition will be played against the host, Gujarat Titans and 4 time IPL Champions, Chennai Super Kings at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad from 7:30pm onwards.

Gujarat Titans who won their debut season of IPL is filled with confidence that even reflected in the IPL Mini Auction held in december, 2022. On the other hand, MS Dhoni led CSK finished second last in the points table of IPL 2022. Based on previous year’s performance, they released players like Dwayne Bravo, Chris Jordan, Robin Uthappa, etc. but bought English All-rounder, Ben Stokes in a whopping price of 16.25 Crores.

CSK have the best allrounder combinations in the IPL 2023 Season which includes the likes of Ben Stokes, Indian All-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja who was retained in 16 Crores and English all-rounder, Moeen Ali who was retained too in 8 Crores.

With the new rule of Impact Player, it becomes even more interesting to see how Thala utilises all his top-notch all-rounders to win the 5th title.

IPL 2022 winning captain, Hardik Pandya who is on the footsteps of MS Dhoni will definitely look to turn the game in his favour with the help of young lads who knows running between the wickets as well as going for monstrous sixes whenever needed.

With the likes of Shubman Gill, Kane Williamson, W Saha, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Abhinav Manohar, Gujarat Titans have great depth in the middle & death overs including the skipper, Pandya himself.

NOTE :- Dhoni was seen wearing knee cap owing to niggle in his left knee. As a result, he was not available in the practice session ahead of much-awaited CSK vs GT. There is probability for Dhoni to miss the inaugural match between the clash of the champions. In that case, Devon Conway may take over the wicket keeping role.

GT vs CSK: Cric Dream11 / My 11 Circle Prediction

Captain: Hardik Pandya

He has been phenomenal with bat as well as bowl. In the last edition of 2022, GT skipper piled 487 runs in 15 matches with SR of 131.27 at lightning average of 44.27 while scalping 8 wickets having 3/17 as the season’s best.

With the presence of Pandya as captain, team will be more balanced giving the definite boost your team needs.

Vice Captain: R Jadeja

The previous season may not be impressive for Jadeja but recent performances justify the selection of Jadeja in our team. Talking about his IPL Stats, he amassed 2500+ runs & 120+ wickets in total. Also, the performances against Australians describe his aura and what can he offer in the match.

Wicket-keeper: Devon Conway

Despite playing his debut IPL season, with his 3 half-centuries and staggering average of 42.00, he scored 250+ runs that too in just 7 matches with 87 as his career best in IPL so far. He proved his worth for getting selected in the team. The more he gets the chances, the best he’ll perform on this grand stage.

Batsmen: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill

Ruturaj amassed 1200+ runs in 36 matches smashing 101*, 99, 72 as his best in 2022, 2021 & 2020 editions respectively. With this track record, he can rip any bowling apart on any given day.

In IPL 2022, Gill scored 483 runs in 16 matches hitting 4 half-centuries with career best 96. 2023 has been phenomenal for him as he became the youngest to hit double century in ODI. Also, getting to play on his IPL home-ground will definitely give him upper hand in the highly anticipating match against CSK.

Their high-scoring ability definitely make them the best choices for batsmen’ selection in Cric Dream11 prediction.

All-rounders: Ben Stokes, R Jadeja, Moeen Ali, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Tewatia

Ben Stokes has been the part of 2 Greatest Matches in Cricket history, explaining his pressure-absorbing abilities making him the right choice for the dream team. He has the skill set to take the game deep and winning the match at the last moment.

Bowlers: Rashid Khan, Md. Shami, Deepak Chahar

Rashid Khan took 57 wickets in the last 3 IPL Editions with 4/24 as his best in previous IPL season making him the perfect pick for your dream team. We all know the ability of Rashid Khan & that’s why he was signed in 15 Crores (in IPL 2022) making him the most valuable player in GT squad along side skipper, Kung-fu Pandya.

Md. Shami finished 7th in Purple Cap race scalping 20 wickets in 16 matches making him the most successful bowler in Titans. Hence, no excuses to let him go from your Cric Dream11 prediction team.

Deepak Chahar has 59 wickets registered on his name with the best figure of 4/13. With his swinging ability, he can be handy in the powerplay. Including him adds balance in the bowling unit.
