Legendary former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar hopes to get an autograph from Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni after the IPL 2023 final on Monday, April 29.
Earlier this season, Gavaskar took an autograph from Dhoni on his shirt after CSK’s last league home game and a video of it went viral online. The former India fly-half had also expressed his emotions on why it was so special for him.
speaking on Star Sports Cricket Live ahead of the IPL 2023 finals, here’s what Gavaskar had to say about Dhoni:
“I have been a fan of MS Dhoni for all he has done for Indian Cricket. He has proven his greatness year after year and I will be his fan forever. Hope I get another autograph from his leaves after the IPL final.”
Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh was also present in the discussion and he shed light on how Dhoni and the management of the CSK team have focused on continuity in the team. He added:
“Once his team is set, MS Dhoni and team management do not change the Playing 11 regardless of who is available on the bench. A player like Ben Stokes – their most expensive player at auction – even had to sit on the bench after regaining his fitness because the team combination was doing well.Confidence in the players drives a great team forward and CSK is a testament to that.
Mohammad Kaif on Shubman Gill ahead of the IPL Finals
Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif thinks Gujarat Titans star Shubman Gill will be one of the big players to watch in the 2023 IPL Finals. Gill has scored a staggering 851 points in 16 games and has three breathtaking centuries in its last four rounds.
speaking on Star Sports Cricket Livehere’s what Kaif had to say about Gill’s ability to be versatile:
“Shubman Gill has this unique ability to adapt to the demand of the situation. He can play explosive shots early in the innings and even in the middle of the innings he’s able to hit those big shots. He’s usually looking to lay down his eyes first and then go ballistic in the middle, which is a great sign for any big hitter who knows how to convert starts into big shots consistently.
DhoniThe men will have to stop Shubman Gill early or the first player could almost single-handedly knock them out of the final.
