Check Out Key Battles for IPL 2023 Final
The most exciting battle to watch out for will be how Shubman Gill, the leading run-scorer and the orange cap holder, will play Deepak Chahar in the powerplay. Deepak Chahar becomes a beast when the pith is offering even the slightest bit of movement and in the form Gill is currently in he can hit any ball anywhere in the stadium.
If Deepak Chahar gets Gill to play a false shot and gets his wicket, it will be interesting to see how the other GT batters play the match whereas if Gill gets set and is comfortable in the powerplay, it is highly unlikely he will stop before scoring a century.

Another key battle we will see Mohammed Shami vs Devon Conway. This is a highly anticipated battle as Shami has always beaten Conway in their previous battles and has kept him on his toes. Shami is also the purple cap holder currently and it will be very exciting what Conway decides – whether to attack Shami or play him out.
Shivam Dube vs Rashid Khan will also be an exciting matchup as Dube has been in top form this IPL scoring a total of 33 sixes in the season. He has taken almost all the bowlers to the cleaners but has failed against the magical spinner from Afghanistan, Rashid Khan.
Rashid Khan will look to attack Dube with each and every ball trying to induce a false shot from him but we will have to see how Dube tackles this problem and performs for his team in the final.
