IPL 2023: Bad news for fans! Will MS Dhoni be out of the first match? important information disclosed

Under the leadership of Hardik Pandya, the Gujarat Titans team, who became champions in their first season, will try to continue their previous success when charismatic captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team take on Chennai Super Kings in the first IPL match. 2023. However, due to Dhoni’s injury before this match, Chennai’s problems have increased.

41-year-old MS Dhoni suffered a left knee injury during a practice session in Chennai. He didn’t hit during practice at Motera Stadium on Thursday. When CSK CEO Kashi Vishwanathan was asked about this, he said that as far as I am concerned, the captain will play 100 percent. I am not aware of any other developments.

Pandya has called Dhoni his mentor (guide or guru) many times and would like to face Dhoni one more time. In the last season, Shishya Pandya’s team managed to defeat Guru Dhoni’s team twice.

Shubman Gill is going through the best period of his career and Rashid Khan’s consistency continues. Pandya himself has worked hard on his fitness and after coming back from injury in the last IPL, he has performed effectively with the ball and bat.

The team will be missing the experienced David Miller in this game, but Rahul Tewatia has done well with the bat for some time now. He will try to fill this void. New Zealand veteran Kane Williamson is also on the team. Although he is not considered very dangerous in this format, but in low-scoring matches, he can become the team’s problem solver.

On the other hand, the last season was very bad for the four-time champion Chennai Super Kings team and the team was in the ninth position in the points table. Now Dhoni is 42 years old, but he has no reprieve on the issue of the captaincy. His plans were also effective in the last session, but there was a lack of implementation.

When Season 16 kicks off on Friday, you’ll see a lot of changes to the competition. Due to the ‘Impact Player’ rule, 12 players will play in the match. Dhoni, who uses his resources very carefully, can become an ‘Impact Player’ if necessary.

The presence of Ben Stokes for Chennai is sure to worry the opposing team, but the England Test captain will not be bowling against the Gujarat Titans. The team’s starting XI will include foreign players such as Devon Conway, Stokes and Moin Ali.

However, the team’s performance will largely depend on how Ravindra Jadeja, Ambati Rayudu and Dhoni perform with the bat. Dhoni will also have the option of a fast bowler like Mathisa Pathirana who bowls like Mahesh Teekshana and Lasith Malinga.

The Gujarat team does not have any reliable Indian fast bowler other than Mohammed Shami. Shivam Mavi made the team, but the decision to leave Lockie Ferguson was beyond comprehension. It remains to be seen how effective Alzarri Joseph will be on Indian pitches.
