CSK vs GT, IPL 2023 Final: Former Indian captain Kapil Dev gave a warning to Shubman Gill prior to Sunday’s Indian Premier League 2023 final between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Gill’s IPL achievements this year have greatly contributed to securing his status as a three-format player and the upcoming great Indian batsman, following in the footsteps of Gavaskar, Tendulkar, and Kohli.

“He needs to watch out for the next three years before he takes his place in the hall of modern greats. When Sunil (Gavaskar) finished playing, Sachin (Tendulkar) carried on the good work. When Sachin departed, we had Virat (Kohli) donning the hat. Now, with Kohli still around, Indian cricket is fortunate to have Gill preparing to dominate world cricket with his astonishing prowess,” Kapil said, according to Sportstar.
The 1983 World Cup winning captain said that Gill could take any bowling attack to the cleaners and that players of his caliber needed to be safeguarded and promoted.
“The problems may not necessarily come from the field of play. He will need to focus on his game as his popularity rises. Expectations of him are bound to grow. He may need sound counselling in today’s world of exposure. It was different when Gavaskar and Tendulkar were ruling the world. Today, a youngster is constantly under scrutiny. Every move is put on social media. I want Gill to stay grounded and blessed. He is destined to go far, but for the next three years he has to stay focused and consistent, ” he added.
Gujarat has advanced to the IPL finals thanks to Gill’s superb batting. Gill, who has three scorching hundreds and over 850 runs in 16 games in the richest T20 league in the world, is anticipated to bring his best game against CSK in the IPL 2023 Final.
