Chennai Super Kings will take on Gujarat Titans in the Qualifier 1 of IPL 2023 at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai on May 23. Ahead of the CSK vs GT contest, former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has quoted that playing at home is a big advantage for the MS Dhoni-led CSK sides.

Harbhajan Singh believes the home condition will give CSK a slight advantage but the Chennai Super Kings team hasn’t been able to convert Chepauk into an invincible fortress in IPL 2023. However, they have enough experience of playing in high-pressure games which will help them in the CSK vs GT clash.

“The contest between CSK and GT will be intense as both teams know how to win big games. CSK playing at home is a big advantage, they know the conditions well but somewhere their performance at home hasn’t been foolproof this year. So this makes things interesting but Chennai looks a completely different side when it plays in the playoffs,” Harbhajan Singh said while speaking to Star Sports ahead of the Qualifier 1.

The team whose openers play well, tend to score well: Harbhajan Singh

“Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway come to the ground with full preparation. They have been complimenting each other very well this season. The team whose openers play well, tend to score well and that is why CSK are in a good position today,” the former spinner further added ahead of the CSK vs GT clash.

It’s worth noting that Chennai Super Kings lost 3 out of their 7 games at the Chepauk Stadium in IPL 2023. Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders successfully breached their fortress as the wicket did allow batters to score big this season.

The two teams contested against each other in the opening encounter of IPL 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium on March 31. Gujarat Titans emerged victorious by 5 wickets in that game but CSK have kept the momentum going right after that game.

Gujarat Titans have a deadly bowling combination led by Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan who’ll look to destroy the CSK batting lineup in the all-important game. On the other hand CSK have got an in-form batting lineup to help their cause.
