CSK has had a horrible season so far in IPL 2022, having lost two out of their eight matches and are languishing right at the bottom of the table, just above Mumbai Indians who have lost all their matches so far this season.
With six more matches to play for, CSK are still not out of the race of a top-four finish but that would take a monumental effort from here on.
Gujarat Titans continue to lead the points table with 8 wins out of nine matches and are almost certain of a place in the playoffs of IPL 2022.
