The much-awaited playoffs of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 is finally here! Gujarat Titans (GT) will be crossing swords with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in this game. The match will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai and is slated to begin from 7:30 PM (IST).
With the Chepauk stadium hosting this game, we can expect the stadium to be awash with the yellow color. This can well be the last time MS Dhoni plays at Chennai and people would be thronging the stadium in large numbers to catch a glimpse of him.
Gujarat would be fairly confident ahead of this GT vs CSK fixture as they finished as the table-toppers after the league stage of this year’s IPL.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for today’s GT vs CSK Qualifier 1 at Chennai:
1. Shubman Gill (Gujarat Titans)
Coming on the back of a magnificent hundred, Shubman Gill will be a key player to watch out for in this GT vs CSK Qualifier 1. He scored 104* runs versus Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Match 70 of IPL 2023 and also knocked them out of IPL 2023.
Gill is the 2nd highest run-scorer of IPL 2023 thus far and has mustered 680 runs at a blistering average of 56.67. He can be a good vice-captain in your fantasy team for this game.
2. Rashid Khan (Gujarat Titans)
Keeping in mind the slow nature of the Chepauk wicket, Rashid Khan will be a valuable asset for skipper Hardik Pandya. Rashid Khan is one of the finest bowlers in T20 cricket and is regarded as a sheer match-winner.
In IPL 2023, he is the joint highest-wicket taker with 24 wickets under his belt so far. He can be a good vice-captain choice in this GT vs CSK game at Chennai.
3. Devon Conway (Chennai Super Kings)
The leading run-scorer of CSK in IPL 2023, Devon Conway will have a lot of responsibilities on him when he comes out to bat at Chennai tonight. He has amassed 585 runs at an average of 53.18 and plays some fine shots in the powerplay.
The Kiwi southpaw forms an indomitable force at the top for CSK alongside Indian young batter Ruturaj Gaikwad. The duo are a lethal opening pair and just reminds CSK fans of the golden pair of Faf Du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad for CSK, back in the day!
