Fantasy Preview: Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans, Match 62, IPL 2022

Here are a few tips that might help you create your fantasy team for Match 62 of IPL 2022 between CSK and GT

While the Gujarat Titans have secured themselves a top-two finish in the 2022 IPL, the loss against Mumbai Indians has ruled Chennai Super Kings out of the playoff race. So, in hindsight, this contest between the two sides is as good as a dead-rubber, considering how the season has gone thus far. 

Having said that, the Titans would want to keep themselves in the good frame of mind ahead of the playoffs, continuing their winning run. Last time around, if not for the miraculous efforts from the duo of David Miller and Rashid Khan, the Titans would have scrambled to a defeat against the Super Kings. 

So, for the Super Kings, there is a score to settle.

Ground Details and Team Combination

We are back at the Wankhede, aren’t we? It is an afternoon fixture, which might not change a whole lot of dynamics. But what it will change is that there will be no talks of any dew at the venue, considering that the entire fixture will be done and dusted before dew can even play a tiny factor. On Thursday, there was a carnage at the Wankhede, with Mumbai beating Chennai by five wickets. 

But what was an interesting sight to see was how the two pace units gave each other a tough fight throughout the encounter. It is going to be yet another contest at the venue that could be decided by the pacers, considering the amount of help that they get. But remember, it is an afternoon game. 

Considering how the afternoon games have played out, expect this encounter to be fairly a high-scoring encounter which could aid the spinners. Unlike most other fixtures, batting first might be a winning call in this particular fixture. 

Team Suggestion

The team we've picked has a good mix of world-class batters and bowlers. But remember, while you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. You can use this tool to build your team with the help of algorithms. Then, based on your preferences, the platform will guide you through creating the ideal fantasy XI.

Captain Selection

Since Wriddhiman Saha has been picked in the playing XI, Gujarat Titans have almost found their perfect playing XI in the tournament. Not only does the right-hander compliment Gill in terms of scoring quickly in the powerplay, Saha’s experience behind the wickets has been invaluable, as witnessed on multiple occasions during the franchise’s win over Lucknow. Against Chennai, a bowling unit which will suit Saha’s gameplay, expect the right-hander to come out flying. 

Criclytics predicts Saha to score 29-43 runs against CSK

X-factors

Devon Conway’s average might have come down massively after the last game but we all know what happened, don’t we? In the absence of DRS, an outrageous decision on the umpire’s part sent the Kiwi batter for a duck. But Conway’s batting is much better than what the score suggested on Thursday. Conway might be vital for Chennai against Gujarat.

Sai Kishore might have only made his IPL debut the other night against Lucknow but the form he has shown at the domestic level, shows that he is ready. Not just a brilliant left-arm spinner, the Tamil Nadu man possesses the unreal ability to pack a punch with the bat when required. He will be up against his former franchise, CSK, who did not quite require his services with the ball. 

Criclytics predicts Kishore to pick 2-3 wickets against CSK

Another CSK pick that has made a stellar mark this season – Mukesh Choudhary. Until last year, the left-arm seamer was just part of the CSK bubble as a net-bowler but in IPL 2022, the Punekar has gone way and beyond with the ball in hand, picking up 11 powerplay wickets for the franchise. Not just that, the 25-year-old has ensured time and again that the Men in Yellow have a good start with the ball. 

Criclytics predicts Choudhary to pick 2-3 wickets against GT

Here are the top-ten picks as per Criclytics prediction
