IPL 2023: The 16th season of the Indian Premier League started with a game between the defending champion Gujarat Titans and the Chennai Super Kings, which was led by MS Dhoni. Hardik Pandya helped Gujarat get off to a good start. The first game was won by a score of five wickets. Rashid Khan and Mohammed Shami did a good job of bowling, which helped Chennai get 178 runs.
The four-time champions, led by MS Dhoni, tried to defend the goal, but star Indian batter Shubman Gill did a great job of stopping them. Former India cricket player Parthiv Patel talked about Gill’s game against Chennai Super Kings after Gujarat won the first game of the season.

Gaikwad got the most runs during the competition. In the next games, he will try to do better than he did in the first one. After losing the first game of the season against Gujarat, Chennai Super Kings will play the KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants on Monday, April 3. The Super Kings will play in the next match, which will take place in Chennai.
Rituraj Gaikwad’s Perforamance
The brave 92 points that Ruturaj Gaikwad scored for Chennai helped Gujarat set a goal of 179. Still, the defending champions won because Shubman Gill scored 63 and Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia played late. During the chase, Wriddhiman got 25 runs off of 16 balls, and Vijay Shankar scored 27 runs, which was also a big help. In the meantime, Rajvardhan Hangargekar got three outs for CSK.
CSK’s first score was 178/7 in 20 overs. Ruturaj Gaikwad scored 92 runs off 50 balls. Each of GT’s bowlers, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, and Alzarri Joseph, took two wickets. Last year, Gill came in fifth place in the Orange Cap race with 483 runs. Before the 50-Over World Cup in 2019, he will try to do better than that. GT will play Delhi Capitals on April 4 in New Delhi. This is after a strong start.
