IPL 2022 GT vs CSK: Table-toppers Gujarat Titans take on Chennai Super Kings as we look at the best predicted playing 11 of both the teams.
It’s match 29 of Tata IPL 2022, and we have the table-toppers Gujarat Titans taking on the Chennai Super Kings. Both teams are coming from an Impressive win, and would be looking to maintain the winning momentum. While Gujarat Titans are sitting at the top of the points table with 4 wins from 5 games, Chennai Super Kings managed to register their maiden win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
When IPL 2022 Mega Auction was concluded, Gujarat Titans were among the worst teams on paper with visible weaknesses across different categories. But surprisingly, the team has played way above its weight, and apart from a strong bowling core, Gujarat Titans saw some individual brilliance in the batting department including Captain Hardik Pandya.
For Chennai Super Kings, they finally managed to kick-start their campaign with a much-needed win against RCB. They were reeling at the bottom of the points table with 4 losses from 4 games, but Robin Uthappa and Shivam Dube inspired the team to an impressive debut win. Apart from Ruturaj Gaikwad’s form, all seems to be working well for them at the moment.
It would be interesting to see both the teams clash against each other as Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are Team India’s best two all-rounders currently. So, will both the teams go with an unchanged 11 to honour their winning combination? Well, let’s look at the key match details, fantasy 11 Prediction, and best predicted playing 11 for Match 29 GT vs CSK of IPL 2022.

IPL 2022 GT vs CSK: Predicted Playing XIs for Both Teams
Gujarat Titans won their fourth match, and made it to the top of the table. They may go unchanged to maintain the winning team, but they should finally take a call on Matthew Wade. He has neither been in good form nor been fortunate enough. Similarly, Vijay Shankar doesn’t seem to be in a good rhythm to deserve a place in the playing 11.
Both these places seem to be adding very less value to the team. Hence, adding Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Wriddhiman Saha for Matthew Wade and Vijay Shankar seems a logical move. But knowing Gujarat’s mindset this season, they might give one more chance to Wade and Shankar before taking a final call on them.
The biggest positive for Gujarat Titans has been the form of Hardik Pandya. The Captain of Gujarat Titans has been contributing quite well in all 4 departments. A true 4D played if we can call him has been performing well as a batter, bowler, fielder and a captain. With such solid form, he is inspiring the team with some valuable contributions.

After 4 losses, Chennai Super Kings finally managed to secure their first win, and that means they should mostly go unchanged. CSK would be happy to see the batting performance of Robin Uthappa and Shivam Dube. The duo was scintillating with their batting. Whereas the bowlers including Theekshana and Jaddu had a superb outing with the ball.
However, the only thing CSK would be hoping for is to see Ruturaj Gaikwad return to form. The Orange Cap winner of IPL 2021 now has 5 failures from 5 innings. Usually, a dependent batter that he is has fallen prey to swing bowling. He is too quality a player to have so many failures. It seems tomorrow could be the night Ruturaj finally comes to the party.

Overall, if Gujarat Titans manage to win this game, they would continue to be at the top of the table with 5 wins from 6 games. In the next 8 games, they would then need only 2-3 wins to qualify for Playoffs. For Chennai Super Kings, they would definitely want to maintain their winning momentum. A win against Gujarat would do their confidence world good.
Best Fantasy XI Prediction for Gujarat Titans vs Chennai Super Kings:
Batters: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa & Shubman Gill
Wks: Matthew Wade
All-rounders: Hardik Pandya, Moeen Ali & Ravindra Jadeja
