IPL 2023 will start on March 31st. The first game will be between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans. It will happen in Ahmedabad. Here, we look at the pitch report of the Narendra Modi Stadium and the weather conditions in Ahmedabad for IPL 2023.
Last season, not many expected Gujarat Titans to do well. However, the franchise went on to win the competition. They were also lucky enough to get home support in crucial games. This time around, this would continue for seven matches.
The Titans do not have any injury issues at the moment. This is a big victory considering the state of other teams in this regard. Hardik Pandya will yet again be the main cricketer for this franchise. Shubman Gill and Rashid Khan are equally important while the likes of Mohammed Shami and David Miller will have to step up, too. New recruit Kane Williamson will also have a big role to play.

It is not exactly a high-scoring ground in Ahmedabad but we could see a lot of sixes being hit at this venue. This is one of the main reasons why captains will prefer to field first after winning the toss.
The average score in each inning is around 150 and it is the side batting second that has enjoyed the most victories at this venue. It will be interesting to see how the spinners would go about at this venue.

It will be a tough place to be during April and May in Ahmedabad. It is during this time of the year that the summer will hit its peak.
While in April, we can expect temperatures to hit 40, in May, it could even cross 40 degrees Celsius. There would be a few clouds but no rainfall is expected.
