IPL 2022: Match 29, GT vs CSK Match Prediction – Who will win today’s IPL Match?

GT vs CSK Match Prediction -Who Will Win Today’s Match?

Preview

GT vs CSK: Like SRH, GT is a side that has managed its resources well. On paper they have some holes in the batting line-up but with Hardik Pandya steering the middle-order the line-up looks quite deep as Rashid Khan is in at number eight. With the ball, they have a lot of options as well with Hardik Pandya and Vijay Shankar available when needed. The way they have managed their resources is a reason as to why they are on top of the table.

The Chennai Super Kings finally won a game this season. They are still a long way from putting themselves back in contention, and with Deepak Chahar officially ruled out of the season the Super Kings have a lot to ponder. They will be naming a replacement soon, but for now they still have a lot to worry about, especially with their bowling attack.
