CSK is a ruthless team: Irfan Pathan. CSK is presently ranked second in the IPL Points Table.
The highly anticipated ‘Rivalry Week’, from the 6th to the 13th of May 2023, is living up to its billings. According to Star Sports, the official television broadcaster of the IPL 2023. With each passing game, Rivalry Week continues to live up to the anticipation. It continues to produce some of the most heat and interesting matches with the greatest rivals in IPL history, demonstrating the tournament’s high level of competition.
Fans are also witnessing the rivalry between teams from the North and South, as some of the top teams from the two areas compete for two critical points as the competition nears its conclusion. All clubs are still in contention for a playoff position, making this edition one of the most closely contested matches in the tournament’s 15-year history. The rivalry week began on May 6th with one of the ‘Greatest Rivalries’ of the IPL, when CSK faced MI.
The Delhi Capitals head south to take on CSK in the latter’s home ground of Chepauk in the next game of Rivalry Week. Following the thrilling win over RCB at home, the David Warner-led team must be full of confidence.
Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh believes two consecutive victories must have boosted this team’s confidence
The absence of runs from Warner’s bat is a concern for DC, who are currently bottom of the league.
“Delhi Capitals’ confidence has increased after winning two consecutive matches,” Harbhajan stated on Star Sports’ Cricket Live, “but captain David Warner’s lack of runs in the last few matches is a cause for concern.” Yes, some young players have stepped forward and accepted responsibility, but Delhi’s problem remains where it began. They were and still are in last place.”
CSK, on the other hand, is rank second, and the MS Dhoni-led team appears to be the favorites to finish in the top four. Former India cricketer Irfan Pathan praised MS Dhoni for his superb tactical tactics that helped CSK advance.
CSK will almost certainly make the playoffs.
CSK will now attempt to finish in the top two. I usually claim that everytime a team comes to their home ground, ‘Chacha Chowdhary’ MSD locks the stadium door and ruthlessly thrashes the opposition. “CSK is a ruthless team that deals with opposing teams in its own way,” Irfan Pathan stated.
Former India cricketer S Badrinath, who has previously worked with CSK, feels CSK’s fast bowling attack is inexperienced, but MS Dhoni has managed it well.
“CSK’s pace bowling attack appears inexperienced, which is a concern.” The bowlers will have to step up, but MS Dhoni has done well with the resources he has,” Badrinath observed.
Former India cricketer S Sreesanth agree with Badrinath and claim that their famous captain knew how to get the best out of his men.
“MS Dhoni’s greatest quality is that he brings the best out of the players,” Sreesanth stated. And if they don’t, he’ll make sure they know what their strengths are. When they have the captain’s support and the team atmosphere is positive, they bring out the best in themselves.”
