The 16th season of the Indian Premier League is coming to an end and in a few days, we will know the final four teams who will be participating in the playoffs. IPL 2023 has been one of the most thrilling editions since the beginning of IPL in 2008. Cricket fans have witnessed some high-scoring matches and some unexpected ends to some fixtures.
Gujarat Titans have already made it to the playoffs and they are now expecting themselves to lift their second title in the Indian Premier League. Skipper Hardik Pandya will be happy overall with the performance of the team even after a slow start at the beginning of the season. In recent times, Chennai Super Kings have gained momentum and they are just three points behind Gujarat Titans in the IPL point table. MS Dhoni has given signs that this will be his last season and hence everyone in the team will be motivated to do their best and the trophy for the Indian legend.
Following Chennai Super Kings, is Lucknow Super Giants with an equal number of points but a slower net run rate. They are in tough competition with Mumbai Indians who are currently in the fourth spot on the points table.
we have listed down three probable games that might take place in Final Matches in IPL 2023.
1) GT vs CSK
There is a high possibility that Gujarat Titans might come face-to-face with Chennai Super Kings. The two top teams are already in high hopes for the rest of the tournament. IPL 2023 started off with these two teams meeting in the first game on 31st March. Gujarat Titans won the game and started their new season with a win. However, Chennai Super Kings gave a tough fight to the opposition but in the end, it was Shubman Gill’s solid performance and well-planned bowling attack of Gujarat Titans that came out on top.
Gujarat Titans definitely have an upper hand if these two teams meet in the final game. Considering the deadly form of Shubman Gill and Mohammad Shami, the Titans will not allow Chennai Super Kings to lift the trophy.
2) CSK vs MI
Whenever Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians have reached the top four of the point table, fans have started expecting their meeting in the final game. Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings are the most successful teams in the history of matches in IPL. MI have won 5 IPL trophies and CSK is training them with 4 IPL trophies. However, they both went through a major setback in the previous season of the IPL.
Chennai Super Kings finished 9th and Mumbai Indians finished last in the point table. Both teams have revived their quality of game and they both are now in the top 4 of the point table. Mumbai Indians started off with a slow pace but they picked up momentum in the middle of the tournament. MI vs CSK will be a treat to watch their matches in IPL final.
3) GT vs LSG
Lucknow Super Giants have found themselves in a troubled situation with the injury of their skipper KL Rahul. He has been ruled from the rest of the tournament but LSG is still having hopes to reach the playoffs and the final game. GT and LSG were the two new teams introduced in IPL last year and because of the same reason they became arch-rivals. Lucknow Super Giants missed out on reaching the final game in the last season as they got knocked out in the playoffs, but this year, the franchise will be motivated to lift their maiden trophy.
