IPL 2023 Match 1, CSK vs GT: Gujarat Titans team led by Hardik Pandya became champions in their very first season in the first match of IPL 2023 when charismatic captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team Chennai on Friday If he comes in front of Super Kings, then his effort will be to continue the previous success. However, Chennai’s problems have increased due to Dhoni’s injury before this match.
41-year-old MS Dhoni suffered an injury on his left knee during the practice session in Chennai. He Narendra Modi did not bat during practice at the stadium. When CSK CEO Kashi Vishwanathan was asked about this, he said that as far as I am concerned, the captain will play 100 percent. I am not aware of any further developments.
Pandya has told Dhoni his mentor (guide or guru) many times and he would like to face Dhoni once again. In the last season, Shishya Pandya’s team was successful in defeating Guru Dhoni’s team twice.
Shubman Gill is going through the best phase of his career and there has been no let up in the consistency of Rashid Khan. Pandya himself has worked hard on his fitness and has been impressive with the ball and bat since his return from injury in the last IPL.
The team will miss the experienced David Miller in this match, but Rahul Tewatia has done well with the bat for some time now. He will try to make up for this shortcoming. New Zealand veteran Kane Williamson is also in the team. Although he is not considered very dangerous in this format, but in low-scoring matches, he can become a troublemaker for the team.
When the 16th season starts on Friday, many changes will be seen in the competition. ‘Impact Player’ Due to the rule, 12 players will play in the match. Dhoni, who uses his resources very thoughtfully, can also call himself an ‘impact player’ Can make.
The presence of Ben Stokes for Chennai will definitely trouble the opposing team, but the England Test captain will not bowl against Gujarat Titans. The starting XI of the team will include overseas players like Devon Conway, Stokes and Moeen Ali.
The team’s performance, however, will largely depend on how Ravindra Jadeja, Ambati Rayudu and Dhoni perform with the bat. Dhoni has the likes of spinner Mahesh Tikhsna and fast bowlers like Mathisa Pathirana, who bowl like Lasith Malinga. Will also be an option.
The Gujarat team does not have any reliable Indian fast bowler other than Mohammed Shami. Shivam Mavi has come in the team but the decision to drop Lockie Ferguson was beyond comprehension. How effective Alzarri Joseph will be in Indian pitches remains to be seen.
