The reigning champion Gujarat Titans will face the four-time champion Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 Qualifier 1 match. The game will take place on Tuesday at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium. Hardik Pandya, the GT captain, will face MS Dhoni one more. Dhoni is a buddy and mentor to Pandya, and he wants to keep winning against CSK.
Pandya discussed his friendship with MS Dhoni prior to the IPL 2023 Qualifier 1. “Many people believe Mahi is solemn and solemn. In a video published by the Gujarat Titans, Hardik Pandya remarked, “I joke around with him, and I don’t see him as Mahendra Singh Dhoni.”
MS Dhoni, the GT captain’s “dear friend and brother,” he said, has taught him a lot. “Of sure, he’s taught me a lot. I’ve learned a lot from him simply by watching him and not hearing him speak much. “But to me, he’s just a good friend and brother with whom I play jokes and hang out,” Pandya explained.
“I will always be a Mahendra Singh Dhoni fan, and for so many fans and cricket fans out there, you have to be a real devil to hate Mahendra Singh Dhoni,” he explained.
In addition, CSK all-rounder Moeen Ali discussed what distinguishes MS Dhoni from the other IPL toppers.
In a video uploaded by CSK, Moeen stated that what distinguishes MS as captain is that if a player has a couple of bad games, especially in the first couple of games, I believe every other team would drop the guy or say, “Look, you’re probably not good enough right now.”
“And this is where MS and trainers view things differently in players. They perceive their potential and provide them opportunities. That is something that not many teams do. “Most teams don’t keep their players for very long,” he explained.
