Chennai, March 26: Gujarat Titans skipper Shubman Gill won the toss and elected to bowl against the Chennai Super Kings at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

CSK and GT are set to face each other for the first time since playing out a thrilling final that saw the MS Dhoni-led side emerge victorious and clinch their fifth IPL title.

GT will be looking to take revenge for the defeat in the final, while CSK will try to keep the winning momentum on their side. Both teams are unbeaten after CSK defeated Royal Challengers Bengaluru with a clinical performance, while GT left Mumbai Indians stunned with a remarkable effort with the ball.

GT skipper Shubman Gill said during the time of the toss, “We will bowl first. That (against MI) match was physical and mentally exhausting. Everyone is well rested and well settled with 10 teams playing. We get enough rest time between matches. It shows the character of the team, the way our bowlers bounced back against Mumbai. Playing with the same team.”

CSK skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad said during the tiem of the toss, “We were looking to bowl first, wicket is hard and looks similar to the first game. It was a rusty start (against RCB) but we came back well. Everyone showed good intent throughout the innings. Our Malinga, Pathirana comes in for Theekshana.”
