CSK vs. GT: In IPL 2023, the matches start again after an interval of one day. Playoff matches will now take place after the conclusion of the league stage. By virtue of this, the first qualifier will be played today in Chennai. While on one side will be the CSK team captained by MS Dhoni, on the other side will be the Gujarat Titans captained by Hardik Pandya. The Gujarat Titans team has reached the playoffs for the second time in a row and they will try to capture the IPL title this time as well. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings have confirmed their playoff spot leaving behind the poor performance of last season. CSK has a long experience in the playoffs, but the bad thing for the team is that they have lost the trophy many times even after coming here. Today, MS Dhoni will again land at his homeland ie Chennai. Let’s take a look at how MS Dhoni’s CSK have performed in the playoffs so far in IPL history.
Such is the record of Chennai Super Kings in the IPL playoffs
Chennai Super Kings is considered the second best team in IPL history. Mumbai Indians have won the most IPL titles while CSK comes second with four trophies. CSK has another registration in his name. The team has played 14 of the 16 IPL played so far. The team was suspended for two years in between. Well out of these 14 IPLs, the team has confirmed its playoff seat 12 times. Not just this, the team has played the IPL final nine times so far out of which the team has won four times and lost five times. While on one hand the team has good to great records, there is also the record of losing the IPL finals the most number of times. Now let’s talk about the playoffs, that is, the knockout games. So far in the history of the IPL, the team has played 23 knockout matches out of which the team won 14 and lost nine.
CSK vs GT head-to-head records in IPL
The special thing about today’s match is that whichever team wins will enter the final, while the team that loses today’s match will not be out of the title win, but their road will definitely be difficult. The team that loses today’s match will have another chance to play in the second qualifier with the winner of the Eliminator. The teams have played 14 matches so far, regardless of win-loss numbers, but now the title is just two wins away. That is, the team that will win two matches in a row from now on, will be able to be named in the IPL this time. But it will not be easy for both teams. You have to remember that the first match of this year was also played between GT and CSK, in which Gujarat Titans got off to a winning start by defeating Chennai Super Kings. At the same time, in the three games that have been played between these two teams, three of the three GTs have won. But CSK will be seen in a new color this time. So winning this match will not be an easy task for GT.
