Aakash Chopra, a former Indian cricketer and renowned analyst, believes that some of CSK’s underperforming players will perform well against Gujarat Titans in IPL 2023 Qualifier 1 to secure a position in the finals. Chopra uploaded a video to YouTube in which he bemoaned the deficiencies of CSK athletes.
Tuesday, at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will face the defending champion Gujarat Titans (GT) in Qualifier 1. The victor of this match will advance directly to Sunday’s IPL 2023 Championship match. However, the losing team will have another opportunity to qualify for the finals, but they must wait for the victor of Wednesday’s elimination match between the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Mumbai Indians to play in Qualifier 2 on Friday.
Chopra believes Rayudu will have a successful battle against Rashid Khan, and it could also be his day. In 10 innings, Rayudu has scored just 122 runs at a below-average average of 15.25.
“Their batting depth is superior. That is without question. Chopra stated on his program Cricket ki Chaupal that Ambati Rayudu has not scored runs thus far, but this could be his match because he may perform well against Rashid Khan.
At Chepauk, Ajinkya Rahane’s stats are extremely average: The phrase Aakash Chopra
Due to the ground, he cannot see Ajinkya Rahane batting at number three. The all-rounder Moeen Ali, who is out of form and unable to perform as well as others, was also mentioned. In nine at-bats during the 2023 season, Ali has scored a paltry 115 runs at an unimpressive average of 16.43.
“One thing we have noticed about Chennai’s squad is that they do not regularly send Ajinkya Rahane at no. 3.” This proposal does not appeal to him. At Chepauk, Ajinkya Rahane’s statistics are extremely average. Therefore, he is placed below No. 3. Moeen Ali did not bowl in the previous match, and his batting is struggling. So, I view it as a minor concern,” Chopra added.
