CSK vs GT: Battle between master and student as MS Dhoni & Hardik Pandya look to deliver one last knockout punch
Life has come full circle for Dhoni and Hardik. The two teams started off the 16th season of IPL, and now, CSK and GT will battle it out in the finale at Ahmedabad. With a four-day break, CSK are recharged and ready to go. While GT took a longer route to reach the finals, they have strong momentum with them.
Shubman Gill is in scintillating form, stroking a fine hundred against MI. The right-hand batter has scored 851 runs and is 49 short of becoming the second batter after Kohli to reach the 900-run mark.
Apart from Gill, Rashid Khan, Mohit Sharma, and Shami have bowled well and have given vital breakthroughs in the middle overs. The only slight concern for the defending champions is the form of David Miller.
The Southpaw has failed to score a single fifty and has not been able to finish games. Pandya is also struggling to score runs in the backend.
That is the one area CSK would like to expose. Dhoni has got good bowlers in the middle and the death, with Theekshana and Pathirana doing the job well. Pathirana has conceded runs below nine runs per over and will look to do well in that phase against GT. Dhoni has humungous experience of playing in the finals, but GT showed last year that they are not overawed by the occasion.
