On Super Sunday, Royal Challengers Bangalore put on a great show in every way and beat Rajasthan Royals by a huge 112-run margin. Former India cricketer Harbhajan Singh praised RCB all-rounder Glenn Maxwell for his fifty that won the game against a good Rajasthan Royals bowling attack. He said the win showed the spirit of RCB and Maxwell.
Harbhajan said on Star Sports’ Cricket Live, “This is a win for RCB and Maxwell’s spirit. It was a very important match, and Maxwell took advantage of the freedom he has at RCB to play a great innings. Maxwell was aware of how good Chahal was at bowling, so he hit fours and sixes on the bowlers who were bowling too loosely. He played based on what the team needed, which is the most important thing for any player to do. You can’t lose sight of the fact that you’re playing as a team, not as an individual, and you should always think about what the team needs. Maxwell did just that, and his innings should be praised for it.”
Later, Kolkata Knight Riders shut out Chennai Super Kings by 6 wickets, ruining the party for CSK fans at the team’s last home game in the league stages, which was lead by MS Dhoni. The loss also hurt CSK’s hopes of making the playoffs. Now, they have to win their last game against DC to get into the next round.
But after their last home game in the IPL 2023, Sunil Gavaskar took a lap around their Anbuden and got Dhoni’s signature on his shirt. It was a great moment for all cricket fans, and it even made people wonder if MSD had given any hints about his future in the IPL. Former India cricketer Mohammed Kaif thinks that MS Dhoni has given enough hints that this will be his last season as a player. Dhoni has won the IPL four times as manager.
“I think MSD has made it clear enough that this is his last IPL. He keeps everyone wondering, which has always been his style. “But I have a feeling that Dhoni won’t play in the IPL next year,” Kaif said.
“We’ve never seen Sunny sir ask any other player for an autograph. “The fact that Sunil Gavaskar asked Dhoni to sign his shirt just shows how great MS Dhoni is,” said Kaif.
