Stability is essential as MS Dhoni and Chennai look to match a record-tying fifth championship: CSK's probable XI vs. GT in the IPL 2023 final

At the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, the four-time champion Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the defending champion Gujarat Titans (GT) will play in the IPL 2023 championship game. CSK defeated GT in the first qualifier earlier this week, and they'll want to duplicate that performance tonight to win the IPL for a record-tying fifth time.
CSK finished second in the standings after playing fourteen league games, winning eight, losing five, and having their second match against LSG postponed due to inclement weather. With victories in 16 of their first 25 games, CSK has now made it to the postseason in 12 of their previous 14 seasons. They are one of the most successful teams in playoff games overall. CSK has now advanced to the playoffs in 12 of their previous 14 seasons. On Sunday, they will compete in their tenth IPL final.
The Dhoni-led team defeated MI, DC, and KKR three times each, as well as RCB, KKR, LSG, and SRH once. They had one loss each against KKR, PBKS, and GT, and finished second to RR in both of their contests. Ruturaj Gaikwad stood out with the bat in the first qualifier, scoring a flashy 60(44) to set the stage. After that, Ambati Rayudu (17 off 9) and Ravindra Jadeja (22 off 16) both scored quickly to give CSK a key late flourish and bring the score to a respectable 172/7. Then, Maheesh Theekshana (2/28) and Jadeja (2/18) created a web around the GT batsmen, helping CSK bowl GT out for 157 and advance to the final with a 15-run win in Chennai.
This season, Ruturaj Gaikwad has run for 564 runs. Devon Conway leads the club in scoring with 625 runs in 14 innings and six half-centuries thus far this year. Ajinkya Rahane and Shivam Dube each contributed 386 and 299 runs, respectively.
Additionally, MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja contributed significant runs down the order. However, Ambati Rayudu has been in dismal form throughout what seems to be his last IPL season.
Maheesh Theekshana and Matheesha Pathirana, two Sri Lankans who have combined for 11 and 17 wickets so far this season, have been crucial to CSK's success.
With 21 wickets, Tushar Deshpande is the team's leading wicket-taker, although he also allows over 10 runs per over. Moeen Ali has taken 9 wickets so far, while Ravindra Jadeja has taken 19 so far. With 11 wickets between them thus far, Mitchel Santner, Hangargekar, and Akash Singh have all contributed. Chahar has contributed as well, taking 12 wickets in nine games after making a comeback from an injury.
The CSK bowlers have performed well this year, but they will have their hands full on Sunday when they go against a hot GT batting order on a batting-friendly Ahmedabad track. For the final on Sunday, CSK are anticipated to remain unaltered.
