GTvsCSK: 16th Edition of IPL Begins in Ahmedabad Today

Ahmedabad: The 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) began today at  Ahmedabad Stadium. The inaugural match between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Chennai Super Kings(CSK) is underway.

CSK were 93 for 3  in 9.3 overs when reports last came in. Earlier GT won the toss and elected to field.

Chennai has rebutted the report of an injury to Indian legend MS Dhoni and confirmed that their captain is available for the opening match of the 2023 Indian Premier League. As Dhoni didn’t bat on the day before the match, has raised doubts about his availability for the game.

Meanwhile, speaking to PTI, CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan said that there is no injury to Dhoni and that he is fit to play. “As far as I am concerned, the skipper is 100 percent playing. I don’t know about any other development,” the CSK CEO told PTI.

Dhoni-led CSK is scheduled to take on Gujarat Titans in the first game of IPL 2023 on Friday (March 31). CSK will play their first home game against Lucknow Super Giants on April 3. A clear word on Dhoni will only be out at the toss time for the first game of the season. The match will start at 7:30 PM IST.

According to reports in Indian Express, Dhoni has been struggling with a niggle in his left knee. The report added that the India legend doesn’t want to push too much.
