G11-Fantasy Cricket Prediction for Today's Match

Chennai Super Kings moved up to the top spot in the IPL 2024 points table after registering their second win of the competition. Shivam Dube and the fast bowlers produced commendable performances as the five-time champions defeated Gujarat Titans by 63 runs. As a result, they have 4 points from 2 matches and the best Net Run Rate (NRR) among all the ten franchises. They were followed by Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders, Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bengaluru. This was the first loss in two matches for GT who are currently in the sixth position with two points.

The fortress at Chepauk stood untouched as the Chennai Super Kings registered a comprehensive 63-run win over the Gujarat Titans on Monday in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

After flying high in the first inning with the bat, Deepak Chahar provided the ideal start by picking up two wickets in the powerplay, dismissing Wriddhiman Saha (21) and skipper Shubman Gill (8).

Despite stumbling twice, GT managed to put 43/2 on the board at the end of the powerplay.

In the middle phase, GT started to fall behind the asking rate, making the record chase of 207 at Chepauk an unchasable dream.

MS Dhoni showed his class with the gloves as he went airborne to take a diving catch and send Vijay Shankar back for 12.

Sai Sudharsan (37) got off to a positive start, but David Miller (21), Vijay Shankar (12) and Azmatullah Omarzai (11) struggled to stitch up meaningful partnerships.

Tushar Deshpande scalped two in the middle phase, while Daryl Mitchell and Matheesha Pathirana claimed a wicket each to ensure the pressure kept mounting on GT.

Mustafizur Rahman came in to remove Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan to further put a dent on GT's chase.

GT never threatened to chase down the target in the final six overs, as CSK inflicted GT's biggest defeat in terms of runs.
