As mentioned above, the Men in Blue were taking on New Zealand in the semi’s of 2019 WC. However, the match was shifted to reserve thanks to rain gods. Similarly, the Yellow Army skipper was set to play his 250th IPL game but the showers have played the spoilsport once again. If rain does not stops, both teams will head out tomorrow (May 29) to face each other for the prized trophy.
With the match getting moved to reserve day, both teams will have more time to pan out their strategies. The defending champs are on fire this season with Shubman Gill leading their batting department. In bowling, Rashid Khan and Mohammad Shami have been spewing venom with the ball as they are on top of the most wickets list for the season.
For CSK, openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway have been magnificent. Shivam Dube has also played some crucial knocks for the four-time champions. In bowling, Tushar Deshpande, Ravindra Jadeja and Matheesha Pathirana have been decent for the yellow outfit. It remains to be seen who will come out on top in the crunch encounter of IPL 2023 on Monday.
