After a hiatus since 2019, IPL 2023 will follow its traditional home-and-away format, with each team playing a total of 14 matches. Every team will have the advantage of playing seven games at their home ground, while the other seven matches will be played at away venues.

IPL 2023 matches will be scheduled at two timings – day matches starting at 3:30 PM IST, and night matches commencing at 7:30 PM IST. The tournament will feature two groups: Group A will consist of Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals, and Lucknow Super Giants. Group B, on the other hand, will comprise Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings, and Gujarat Titans.

Today’s match

IPL 2023 will kick off with a clash between defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) and four-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK), featuring a faceoff between two generations of Indian cricket. On one side, we have CSK skipper MS Dhoni, who led India to unprecedented heights of success in the late 2000s and early 2010s by winning the inaugural ICC T20 World Cup (2007), ICC Cricket World Cup (2011), and ICC Champions Trophy (2013), making him the only skipper to achieve this feat. On the other side, GT skipper Hardik Pandya rose to superstardom after leading his team to the title in their debut season. Pandya has also secured some wins for India in shorter formats at the international level and is positioning himself as a potential future white-ball skipper.

Here’s a possible rephrased version:

The Gujarat Titans (GT) squad for IPL 2023 includes Abhinav Manohar, Shubman Gill, Kane Williamson, Hardik Pandya as the captain, Rahul Tewatia, Matthew Wade as the wicketkeeper, Rashid Khan, Shivam Mavi, Alzarri Joseph, Mohammed Shami, Yash Dayal, Srikar Bharat, Wriddhiman Saha, Sai Sudharsan, Urvil Patel, Vijay Shankar, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Odean Smith, Jayant Yadav, Joshua Little, Darshan Nalkande, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma, and Pradeep Sangwan.

The team also comprises Dwaine Pretorius, Deepak Chahar, Simarjeet Singh, Ajinkya Rahane, Subhranshu Senapati, Shaik Rasheed, Nishant Sindhu, Mitchell Santner, Bhagath Varma, Tushar Deshpande, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Ajay Jadav Mandal, Prashant Solanki, and Akash Singh.
