Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s CSK reached the final after a 15-run victory over GT in Qualifier 1 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, while the Titans led by Hardik Pandya reached their second final in a row following a 62-run win over Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 2.
CSK will be a confident side, having defeated the Titans recently. But the MS Dhoni-led side will be wary of their overall record against the reigning champions and also their winless run during their visits to Ahmedabad.
