Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans will be facing each other in the opening match of IPL 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium on March 31.
Both the teams have many superstars in their squad and the fans are expecting a blockbuster match between the defending champion Gujarat Titans and 4-times title winner Chennai Super Kings.
Here is the best combined CSK and GT 11 for IPL 2023:
Openers: Ben Stokes and Shubman Gill
Both Ben Stokes and Shubman Gill have a strong base against quality fast bowling and are technically sound against spinners. Both the batsmen can also bat destructively in the powerplays to give the team a good start.
Middle order: Moeen Ali, Hardik Pandya, David Miller, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c/wk)
The team has a dynamic middle-order consisting of three left-handers and two right-handers. Moeen and Pandya can take on the spinners, while Miller, Dhoni (c/wk), and Jadeja can attack the fast bowlers in the death overs. Moeen, Hardik, and Jadeja can also contribute with the ball.
Bowlers: Rashid Khan, Deepak Chahar, Shivam Mavi, Mohammad Shami
The bowling attack has a good mix of quality spin and pace. Mohammad Shami will be leading the pace department, whereas Rashid Khan will be leading the pace department. Rashid Khan won the IPL trophy last season with Gujarat Titans, taking 19 wickets at an average of 20 and an economy rate of 6.6.
