CSK won the toss and opted to field, a decision that would soon be tested by GT’s formidable batting lineup.

“We’ve decided to bowl first. The pitch looks good but slightly sticky, which makes me believe it will be better to chase on this surface.The conditions here are quite similar to what we’ve experienced in the last two games in Chennai, except for one match on red soil which we didn’t favor much.
The atmosphere within the team is quite relaxed. In the IPL, it’s normal to lose several games, but it’s crucial to remain confident and ensure everyone is in a good mental state.We’ve faced some challenges with injuries and flu cases in the squad, but overall, I’m satisfied with how we’ve managed so far. For today’s match, Rachin Ravindra will come in to replace Richard Gleeson.”

“I would have preferred to bowl first too. It’s a good wicket and it would have been ideal to know the target and then chase it down. We still have a slim chance of qualifying, about 1%, but as long as there’s a possibility, we’ll give it our all. The team’s mood is like any other match; we believe in doing the best we can.
The surface looks conducive for batting, so I’m confident we can keep them to a manageable score and then put up a good total ourselves. I don’t anticipate any dew, which could work in our favor.We’re making two changes today: Wriddhiman Saha has a niggle and will be replaced by Matthew Wade. Joshua Phillipe misses out due to team dynamics, allowing Kartik Tyagi to make his debut for us.”

” Batting in front of a large crowd definitely makes it easier; there’s a sense of freedom that comes with it. We didn’t set a specific target but aimed to maximize every opportunity presented to us.Our team has great camaraderie. We excel at running between the wickets, hitting gaps, and taking twos. We’ve batted together since last year, which has really built our understanding.
This partnership is arguably the best opening duo GT has had. Mohit has been exceptional over the past few years, both with his bowling and batting. Though he’s had a couple of off games, that happens to everyone. With a few games left, I’m confident we can turn things around.We could have reached 250 today; we were about 10-15 runs short. In the final overs, they bowled well, which affected our net run rate going forward.”

This win by 35 runs keeps GT’s playoff hopes alive and adds another thrilling chapter to their IPL journey.
