In the IPL 2023 final, the incumbent champion Gujarat Titans will face the Chennai Super Kings. Gill destroyed Michigan’s bowling lineup and rolled his third perfect game of the competition. Seven fours and ten sixes helped Shubman Gill score 129 runs in 60 deliveries. In the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League, Gill has scored 851 runs in 16 innings with a remarkable average of 60.79 and a strike rate of 156. He is 122 runs shy of Virat Kohli’s record 973 runs in the 2016 edition of the prestigious competition.
Former cricketer-turned-analyst Aakash Chopra stated that Deepak Chahar may be the only concern for Gujarat Titans (GT) starter Shubman Gill in the IPL 2023 championship match against the Chennai Super Kings. Chopra questioned in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel whether Gill could exceed Kohli’s record. He predicts that the opener will once again be exceptional if he can handle Chahar’s new-ball duress.
“This individual (Gill) bats differently. He is no longer the crowned monarch; he is now the king. Can he surpass Kohli’s season record of over 900 runs? He will need to achieve 122 runs again for that. In his last four innings, he has scored three centuries, Chopra stated on his YouTube channel, Cricket ki Chapaul.
Gill is an exceptional athlete: Aakash Chopra
Gill was dismissed from their Qualifier 1 match by Chahar, albeit for using an obsolete ball. In GT’s previous two 2023 matches against CSK, the talented opener scored 63 and 42 runs, respectively, and would want to perform even better in the championship match.
The only issue he faces is the law of averages. Aside from that, nobody can stop this man. Deepak Chahar is the only threat if he can control the new ball at the beginning, which he can do, but if he controls him, this player will strike again. He is a very formidable player,” Chopra added.
MS Dhoni is poised to make history once more on Sunday, when his team Chennai Super Kings faces Gujarat Titans in the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League Final at the Narendra Modi Stadium. The 41-year-old former India captain, who has already led Chennai to four IPL titles, will attempt to lead the Yellow Army to a record-tying fifth title for Mumbai Indians.
