23:53 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: GT win by 5 wickets

Gujarat Titans' title defence begins with a win, in a familiar fashion. CSK's Ruturaj Gaikwad played a splendid innings falling short of a century by eight runs, setting up a score of 178 in the first innings. Gujarat got off to a blazing start with Wriddhi Saha, the first-ever impact substitute, showing Tushar Deshpande the roof within the powerplay. Shubman Gill held the innings together, while Sai Sudharshan and Vijay Shankar played crucial knocks to keep the scoreboard ticking. At the death, CSK's debutant RS Hangargekar impressed with a three-wicket haul, but Rahul Tewatia's trademark finishing cameo sealed the game for Gujarat. Rashid Khan added to the fireworks with a six and four, proving to be a thorn for the opposition with the bat.

23:33 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Vijay Shankar Departs

Shankar falls prey to RS Hangargekar's attempted yorker in his IPL debut, caught by Santner at a crucial moment. Although Shankar manages to get enough elevation, he fails to get the desired distance. Santner, who is back-tracking, never takes his eyes off the ball and executes a brilliant reverse cup catch. This wicket could prove to be a turning point in the game. Shankar is dismissed for 27 runs off 21 deliveries, including 2 boundaries and a six.


23:14 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Tushar Deshpande Strikes, Gill Departs

Shubman Gill's aggressive innings comes to an end as he is caught by Gaikwad off the bowling of Tushar Deshpande. Gill attempts to play the big slap across the line again, but the ball goes high up in the air instead of far. Gaikwad sprints in from the boundary ropes and completes a fine catch. Gill departs after scoring a quickfire 63 off 36 balls, including 6 boundaries and 3 sixes.

22:56 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Sudharsan Departs

Hardik Pandya bowled by Jadeja! It was a flat delivery outside off that quickly went through. Pandya tried to play a cross-batted sweep shot, but the ball zipped through and hit the off stump. It was an unnecessary shot from Pandya, and it cost him his wicket today. He departs for 8 runs off 11 deliveries.

22:46 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Sudharsan Departs

Sai Sudharsan is dismissed by RS Hangargekar, caught by Dhoni. It was a soft dismissal as Hangargekar bowled a wide-length ball cutter. Sudharsan attempted to cut it and got a faint under-edge, which carried through to Dhoni. Sudharsan had a wry smile on his face, knowing that it would have been a wide had he not played at it. This could be Chennai Super Kings' chance to get back into the game. Sudharsan scored 22 runs off 17 deliveries, including three fours. The official scorecard reads: Sai Sudharsan c Dhoni b RS Hangargekar 22(17) [4s-3].


22:40 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Time out

It's time for a Time-Out. The Gujarat Titans' chase is proceeding according to plan, with their Impact Player making a positive impact. Gill, who has had a solid start to the calendar year, appears as confident as ever. However, the Chennai Super Kings need to take a wicket soon if they want to turn things around.

In his first over, RS Hangargekar dismisses Saha caught by Shivam Dube. Saha attempted a shot away from his body against a short ball, resulting in a top edge that flew towards square third man. Dube sprinted towards his right, kept his eyes on the ball, and completed an impressive catch by diving to his right. Saha awaited the replays on the sidelines, but the catch was confirmed to be clean. The opening partnership has been broken, indicating that more wickets could fall over the next few overs. Saha departs for 25 runs off 16 deliveries, including two fours and two sixes. The official scorecard reads: Saha c Shivam Dube b RS Hangargekar 25(16) [4s-2 6s-2].

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: CSK post challenging total

Chennai Super Kings posted a fairly competitive total, but it seems like they could have scored much higher. Despite losing Conway early after being put in to bat, Gaikwad seemed comfortable despite his partner's dismissal. Gaikwad and Moeen Ali dominated the powerplay, but Rashid Khan ended their partnership by dismissing both England all-rounders in his first over. However, Gaikwad continued to score boundaries, including some remarkable sixes. After the second strategic time-out, Gujarat Titans pulled things back, and CSK lost their momentum. Although Gaikwad missed out on his century and Dube and Rayudu failed to accelerate towards the end, Dhoni played a couple of impressive shots. It remains to be seen whether they will be satisfied with the total. The Giants will attempt to chase it down, and we will find out in the second innings in 10 minutes.

21:22 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Jadeja Departs

Jadeja has been caught by Shankar at deep mid-wicket off Alzarri Joseph's delivery. It was a full-length delivery on the middle and leg, and Jadeja flicked it stylishly. However, he didn't hit it with enough power to clear the boundary. Despite it not being an easy catch, Vijay Shankar stationed near the boundary made it look like one. He reverse-cupped the catch, and Jadeja had to depart after scoring just 1 run off 2 balls.

21:15 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Ruturaj Gaikwad Miss Out On 100

Gaikwad has been caught by Shubman Gill off Alzarri Joseph's delivery. Although it was a high full toss, the ball was just below the waist, as confirmed by the third umpire. The ball was dipping in as Gaikwad attempted to hit it towards the fence, but he failed to middle it properly. As a result, Gill managed to take the catch. Gaikwad's impressive innings comes to an end as he departs with a score of 92 runs off 50 balls, including 4 fours and 9 sixes.

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Rayudu Departs

Rayudu has been bowled out by Joshua Little. Rayudu charged forward to slog the ball, but the slower off-cutter deceived him. He attempted to swing the bat down the ground but missed the ball completely, resulting in it crashing into the stumps. Rayudu's score was 12 runs off 12 balls, including 1 six.

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Gaikwad Hits Fifty

Gaikwad hits a six off Alzarri Joseph's delivery, bringing up his fifty off just 23 balls. The crowd and his CSK teammates cheer in excitement. Joseph bowled a back-of-a-length delivery around waist height, but Gaikwad stood tall and pulled the ball with immense power right off the middle of the bat. The ball sailed deep into the stands over the square leg area.

20:21 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Huge blow for CSK, Ben Stokes out

Stokes has been caught by Saha off Rashid Khan's delivery, and there was a clear edge. The umpire raised his finger to signal the dismissal. Stokes misread the length of the ball and went back to play a leg-break that he should have been moving forward for. The delivery was pushed through flat just outside off, and Stokes attempted to punch it through cover, but it skidded through sharply, resulting in a nick that was taken by the keeper. Saha displayed yet another impressive catch behind the stumps. Stokes scored 7 runs off 6 balls, including 1 four.

Moeen Ali has been caught by Saha off Rashid Khan's delivery. Moeen attempted to hit the ball over extra cover with a powerful swing but ended up edging it behind.

Moeen's score was 23 runs off 17 balls, including 4 fours and 1 six.

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Shami Strikes

Conway has been bowled out by Shami to give him his 100th IPL wicket. Shami bowled a brilliant delivery, pitching the ball full and fast from around the wicket with a slant. Conway attempted a very loose drive, failing to move his front foot, which allowed the ball to sharply nip in and pass through the gap between bat and pad. The ball went on to hit the middle and off stumps, resulting in Conway's dismissal. The final score for Conway was 1 run off 6 balls.

19:23 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Both team captains at the toss

Dhoni: We're also looking to bowl. Looks like a good wicket and I don't think it will change. Don't know if there will be dew because it rained last night. You want to play in front of people. This stadium is twice the capacity of other stadiums. Fantastic atmosphere. The preparation was good. We assembled quite early. It's a luxury to have (an impact player). It becomes slightly easy to decide because you can use it at any time. The influence of all-rounder has become slightly less because of the rule.

Pandya: We'll bowl first. It's always good to play here. New start, new season, quite exciting. Almost everyone in the country has got motivation by him (Dhoni). Been a fan and admirer of him. Want boys to enjoy it. The result will take care of itself. It's different - I've left it in the coach. Ashu pa works all night on what needs to be done. I don't know (a combination for today).

19:20 PM

GT vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Toss Report

Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya won the toss and opted to field first against MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings in the opening encounter of the Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL 2023) at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on Friday.


19:01 PM

Live IPL 2023 GT vs CSK: Pitch Report by Simon Doull

"Looks like a belter of a wicket, there's a bit of grass covering on it, the surface is nice and hard. It has some good pace and bounce in it. The new ball might nip around a bit, so the opening batters will have a little bit of work cut out. The square boundaries are comparatively shorter as compared to the straighter ones. A great cricket surface and the outfield looks magnificent. The batters need to put up a good score on the board."


18:40 PM

Live IPL 2023 GT vs CSK: GT's Strength

Gujarat Titans, the defending champions, have a significant advantage as they have not experienced any significant injuries so far. This further strengthens an already well-established team that knows how to win. With a strong core consisting of Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya, David Miller, Rashid Khan, and Mohammed Shami, the team boasts one of the best line-ups in the tournament, with each player well aware of their respective roles. The inclusion of Kane Williamson further adds to the team's experience and quality.


18:24 PM

Live IPL 2023 GT vs CSK: CSK's Strength

One of CSK's strengths is the return of MS Dhoni as the captain for the entire season, following a mid-season change last year. Despite concerns about the team's future and a potential succession plan after the failed Ravindra Jadeja experiment, Dhoni's leadership is an X-factor. With a squad personally selected by him, CSK has confidence in their captain's ability to bring out the best in each player, making them a cohesive unit that is more than just the sum of their talents.

18:09 PM

Live IPL 2023 GT vs CSK: CSK's Weakness

CSK's weaknesses are evident from their 9th-place finish last season, and their squad appears to have several flaws. Despite a strong top three in Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Ben Stokes, their batting lineup lacks confidence. Although Dhoni was exceptional in his prime, it's doubtful that he can consistently perform at that level. The same can be said for Ambati Rayudu, who had a poor 2022 season and has hardly played any cricket in the past year. Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, and Shivam Dube are the players that CSK will rely heavily on, hoping for a good performance from them.


17:55 PM

Live IPL 2023 GT vs CSK: GT's Weakness

One of the primary factors contributing to the success of GT was the outstanding performance of their local players. However, players such as Wriddhiman Saha, KS Bharat, Rahul Tewatia, Yash Dayal, Shivam Mavi, and R Sai Kishore could face unpredictable challenges that may affect their performances. If their form deteriorates, it could also negatively impact the franchise's prospects.

Live IPL 2023 GT vs CSK: MS Dhoni As Impact Player

Although there are concerns about MS Dhoni's fitness as he recovers from a knee injury, his potential impact in Chennai Super Kings' opening IPL match against Gujarat Titans should not be underestimated. Despite a decline in his batting performance, he is still regarded as one of the best captains in IPL history. If he is even 80% fit, CSK could rely on him as an impact player during a crucial moment of the game.



17:21 PM

Live IPL 2023 GT vs CSK: Jadeja to bat up the order: Harbhajan

"One player who I am going to have my eyes on will be Ravindra Jadeja. I want to see what kind of batting he's going to do for CSK. I think he'll be pushed higher up in the batting order. As well as his four overs with the ball (will be key). If you look at world cricket currently, there's no better all-rounder than him. So, I am looking forward to seeing Ravindra Jadeja performing in the IPL," Bhajji told Star Sports.

Live IPL 2023 GT vs CSK: Pandya is a complete player: Anil Kumble

"For a fast bowler to be bowling at that pace and then coming in and batting in whichever situation, we have seen that with Mumbai Indians, he did the finisher's role but last year we saw a different Hardik Pandya, the captain play a different role for Gujarat. In that sense, he's the complete package you'd expect from a player. He reads the game really well, just like MS Dhoni. You can see that in the way he bats and bowls, and also manages his bowling resources."


16:22 PM

Live IPL 2023 GT vs CSK: Who will be the impact player for GT? Zahir Khan Says This

"If you talk about an impact player, Hardik is the ideal impact player. In the situation where he bats, at number five or six, it is not easy, especially in this format where you have to use the last three or four overs to bat at a particular strike rate, while facing ten to twelve deliveries. That's his specialty. His hand speed is exceptional and for a batter to have that hand speed and catch the ball, very few players can actually do that. Even when bowling, he can bowl at any phase, he is an all-phase bowler which is an asset," Zaheer was quoted as saying by Sports18.
