CSK vs GT IPL 2022: Four-times champions and already eliminated from the playoff race, Chennai Super Kings will take on table-toppers Gujarat Titans in the 62nd match of IPL 2022 in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. 

With one team already out of the playoff race and the other already qualified, both these teams would be looking to try out different players and combinations for the future. 


Here are a few key players & matchups that can decide the outcome of this match.

1. Saha, Miller & Tewatia vs DJ Bravo

Wridhhiman Saha has been an excellent opening option for Gujarat Titans so far in this season, smacking 154 runs inside the powerplay in 7 innings at a strike rate of 133.91. Saha has only been dismissed twice inside the powerplay in IPL 2022. 

West Indies' T20 legend and two-time IPL Purple Cap winner Dwayne Bravo, has conceded just 36 runs in 36 deliveries against Saha, dismissing him thrice.

When these two teams earlier in the season, David Miller was the hero for GT as he scored an unbeaten 94 runs to take GT to a 3-wicket win in the last over while chasing 170. Rahul Tewatia has also won matches for GT with the bat with his tremendous finishing skills. 

DJ Bravo has dismissed David Miller four times in T20 cricket, while Tewatia has managed just 25 runs in 19 balls against Bravo and has fallen to the West Indian twice. The result of the match may very well depend on how important Gujarat Titans' batters take on Chennai Super Kings bowler DJ Bravo. 

2. Ruturaj Gaikwad vs Yash Dayal

IPL 2021 Orange Cap winner Ruturaj Gaikwad gained his form late in the IPL 2022. However, with an able opening partner in Devon Conway, Gaikwad has once again displayed how he can win matches with his opening. 

The young right-handed batter smacked 73 runs off 48 deliveries in the reverse fixture. However, Gaikwad has a poor record against left-arm pacer in the PowerPlay, getting out 8 out of 15 times and registering just 91 runs in 95 balls. Gujarat Titans pacer Yash Dayal can exploit this weakness and dismiss the opening batter early.
