Chennai Super Kings (CSK) bowling coach Dwayne Bravo mocked the IPL 2023 experts for their prediction of the two teams finishing on the top of the Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL) points table. On Saturday, May 20, the MS Dhoni-led side defeated Delhi Capitals (DC) by a margin of 77 runs in the final league stage clash at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. With this win, CSK booked their spot in the playoff by finishing second in the IPL 2023 points table with 17 points to their name.
Three teams namely Gujarat Titans (GT), Chennai Super Kings, and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), have already qualified for the IPL 2023 playoffs. Meanwhile, the three teams still in contention for the playoffs, ahead of the last two league games, are Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Rajasthan Royals (RR), and Mumbai Indians (MI).
Bravo posted the prediction list on his official Instagram handle, which had been compiled by experts like David Hussey, Daren Ganga, Sanjay Manjrekar, and Mithali Raj among many others. Notably, no one predicted CSK would finish in the first or second position, which prompted the former West Indies and CSK star, as he teased them, stating that he feels these predictions were made on April Fools Day. He further mentioned that CSK have advanced to the playoffs 12 times, reached the final for nine times, and won four titles in the lucrative league.
"I guess these predictions were made on April Fools Day @chennaiipl 12 times playoffs, 9 times in finals..4 trophies #RESPECT #RESPECT," the 39-year-old captioned the post.
