IPL 2023: CSK has a chance to win the title for the fifth time, but these four players from Gujarat can spoil MS Dhoni’s hopes.
IPL 2023 Final CSK vs GT: There is no doubt that MS Dhoni is one of the best captains in the world and there is no dearth of experience with him. Dhoni is also known for his cricketing knowledge and has a strategy for every player of the opposing team, but in IPL 2023, he is up against the Gujarat Titans who have performed brilliantly as a unit and reached the finals. CSK are on the verge of becoming champions for the fifth time by winning the match against Gujarat, but is it going to be that easy.
Gujarat made a tremendous comeback against Mumbai
Gujarat had definitely lost to CSK in the first qualifier, but seeing the way Hardik Pandya’s team made a comeback against a team like Mumbai Indians in the second qualifier, even CSK must have been dizzy. Especially Shubman Gill, who flopped in batting against CSK, showed such a blast with the bat that the Mumbai team was completely disintegrated. No strategy of Rohit Sharma, who made Mumbai champions five times against Gill, worked. In such a situation, Gill will also be a big challenge for MS Dhoni because if he leaves then what can he do, everyone had seen in the second qualifier.
Gill, Shami, Mohit and Rashid have the power to defeat Chennai
If the CSK team wants to become the champion, then they should get four players from Gujarat, Shubman Gill, Mohd. Under a special strategy against Shami, Rashid Khan and Mohit Sharma will have to land on the ground. These players have so much stamina that they can push the CSK team on the backfoot. Shubman Gill has been on fire with the bat this season and has scored 851 runs in 16 matches with 3 hundreds. The ruthlessness with which he thrashed the Mumbai bowlers was unmatched. If CSK doesn’t deal with him quickly in the final, the contest may slip out of his hands.
While Shubman Gill is making things easy for Gujarat in batting, the team is performing as a unit in bowling. In the beginning, where Shami takes wickets by swinging the ball, then in the middle, Mohit Sharma has the power to take wickets with his slower. At the same time, Rashid Khan also makes it difficult for the opposing batsmen by coming in the middle of the match.
While Mohit Sharma had broken the back of this team by taking 5 wickets against Mumbai, Shami had given great relief to Gujarat by dismissing Rohit Sharma and Nehal Wadhera in the beginning itself. Then Rashid Khan dismissed Tim David and Tilak Verma, dimming Mumbai’s hopes of victory. In such a situation, the CSK batsmen will have to hit the ground with better preparation against these bowlers. Shami 28 wickets, Rashid Khan 27 wickets while Mohit Sharma has taken 24 wickets so far this season.
