The competition between CSK and GT will be intense, as both teams know how to win big games. CSK playing at home is a big advantage, they know the conditions well, but somewhere their performance at home this year has not been flawless, Grabhajan told Star Sports.
It makes for an interesting game, but CSK looks completely different when they play in the playoffs. I’m looking forward to this matchup.
Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag thinks the Afghan spin sensation will be a trump card for the defending champions.
Rashid Khan is a trump card for Gujarat. If they need wickets, they take him. And the way Hardik has used Rashid is commendable, Sehwag said.
Rashid likes to break up partnerships and he has now become the most successful bowler this season because of his excellent play.
Harbhajan Singh also believes CSK openers Ruthuraj Gaikwad and Devon Conway will play a big role in Qualifier 1.
Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway come to the court fully prepared. They complement each other very well this season, Harbhajan said.
They’ve given CSK a good start, scoring points and entertaining spectators in abundance. A team whose open players play well usually scores well, which is why CSK is in a good position today.
