The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 Qualifier 1 will be played on Tuesday, May 23, at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The match will be between the four-time champion Chennai Super Kings and the Gujarat Titans, which is managed by Hardik Pandya.
Since it is the first qualifier for the IPL 2023, everyone will be watching the two teams as they try to make it to the final match of the big event. With the game coming up soon, there will be many fights to watch out for on the field.
Indian bowler Aakash Chopra, who used to play, recently spoke out about the same thing. The 45-year-old said that he was excited to see how Gujarat‘s new bowlers and Chennai Super Kings’ hitters would do against each other.
“In every big fight, there are always some small battles. I’m excited to see Gujarat’s new-ball bowlers go up against Chennai’s best hitters who are in good form. Mohammad Shami did a great job the last time these two teams played. Aakash Chopra said in a video on his YouTube account, “He hit Devon Conway’s stumps right at the start.”
The tone of the game is expected to be set by how they bowl to Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway: Chopra Mohammed Shami’s play could make or break the game for Gujarat. The experienced Indian pacer has taken 24 wickets in 14 games so far. He is tied with teammate Rashid Khan on wickets, but he is in the lead because he has a better economy.
In the same way, Aakash Chopra didn’t know who Shami’s bowling partner with the new ball would be. The 45-year-old also said that the game could come down to how Gujarat bowls to Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway.
“Now, when they meet here, Mohammad Shami will be on one side, and Yash Dayal or someone else will be on the other side. Hardik Pandya might bowl. Aakash Chopra said, “How they bowl to Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway is likely to set the tone for the game.”
