CSK vs GT, IPL 2023: Before the pivotal Qualifier 1 match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Gujarat Titans (GT), former India cricketer Virender Sehwag gave his judgement, saying that CSK’s Rashid Khan will be the ‘trump card’ for the defending champions.

Notably, on Tuesday, May 23, the two titans will meet at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai to determine who will play in the IPL 2023 championship match. Rashid Khan will play a crucial role for Gujarat on the spin-friendly surface at Chepauk, according to former batter Sehwag ahead of Qualifier 1.

It’s worth noting that the Afghan spin wonder, along with his partner Mohammed Shami, has taken 24 wickets in 14 matches in the premier division. He has a four-wicket haul and an economy rate of 7.82, which is rather good.

Sehwag, during an interview with Star Sports Cricket Live, expressed that Rashid Khan holds a pivotal role as the trump card for Gujarat. Whenever the team requires wickets, they rely on Rashid’s exceptional skills. Sehwag also commended Hardik’s effective utilization of Rashid’s abilities. Rashid’s primary strength lies in his ability to dismantle partnerships. As a result of his outstanding performances, he has emerged as the most successful bowler of this season.


In the lucrative T20 competition, the reigning champions have a fantastic record versus the four-time winners. After dominating all three of their previous matches, Hardik Pandya and company will be looking to keep their winning run going against the yellow team.

Notably, after the group stage, the Titans finished with 20 points (10 victories) with a commanding lead atop the IPL Points Table. MS Dhoni’s Super Kings, on the other hand, are in second position after racking up 17 points (eight wins, one loss, and a tie in one match). Both teams will be looking to make it to the championship game on their first try. So this could be a very intriguing matchup.
