The important Qualifier 1 match between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans is scheduled for Tuesday, and the victor will earn a spot in the Indian Premier League final in 2023. With CSK and GT emerging as two of the top teams in the league part of the campaign, the match is still close. The teams and their players have been the subject of debate among former cricketers and analysts in the run-up to the much anticipated match. Rashid Khan has been chosen by Virender Sehwag as their “trump card” after GT finished first in the league rankings.
Rashid has been one of the league’s most reliable players this year when it comes to the Titans. Shubman Gill, who now holds the second place on the list of hitters with the most runs scored, has also been productive. Rashid, though, poses a much greater threat to CSK according to Sehwag.
Sehwag said “Rashid Khan is Gujarat’s greatest strength. They should bring him if they want wickets. The way Hardik handled Rashid thereafter is praiseworthy. Rashid enjoys dismantling partnerships, and because to his outstanding performance this season, he has emerged as the most successful bowler.
There were many parallels between GT and CSK in terms of the tactical strategies they use, according to Sanjay Manjrekar, who participated in the conversation.
The tactical similarities between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings are striking. The leadership group maintains the mood upbeat in the dressing room and neither of these teams look to make too many changes. The playoff matchup between these two would be exciting, Manjrekar said.
