The IPL 2023 commenced with a contest between the Gujarat Titans and CSK at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on 31st March. Interestingly, the league's season will conclude with a clash between the same two teams and both would be trying their best to get their hands on the trophy.
CSK defeated Hardik's squad in Qualifier 1 three days back in front of an enthusiastic home crowd at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. However, defending champions, the Gujarat Titans will have the support of their home fans this time around, having already crushed the Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 2 on Friday, setting up a rematch against the Chennai Super Kings.
Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar desires the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to capture the trophy, particularly because he adores MS Dhoni. Gavaskar readily acknowledged that CSK has a special place in his soul as his second favourite IPL team, after his home side, the Mumbai Indians. He shared his hope for Chennai to claim the trophy, stating that witnessing Dhoni triumph another time would be absolutely spectacular.
Chennai Super Kings have always been my second favourite team: Gavaskar
"Chennai Super Kings have always been my second favourite team apart from the Mumbai Indians. My heart wants CSK to win because the fact that MS Dhoni is able to win it one more time would be fantastic. Proving once again that calm, cool decision-making can make a difference. Having said that, Gujarat Titans have been the best team. They have got a terrific opener in Shubman Gill and Hardik Pandya," Sunil Gavaskar told on Sports Today.
The question of whether Dhoni will capture his fifth title as captain, equalling Rohit Sharma's record, or if Hardik will become the third skipper to win the trophy in a row remains unanswered for now. Both teams' players are in outstanding form right now, making this a highly competitive encounter.
Meanwhile, the platform is set for the final encounter of the ongoing Indian Premier League as the four-time champion Chennai Super Kings and the reigning champion Gujarat Titans will be locking horns in Ahmedabad on May 28.
