Legendary England national cricket team batsman Kevin Pietersen has praised the leading group of Indian Premier League (IPL) teams Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI).

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) patron MS Dhoni he led his troops wisely in IPL 2023 Qualifier 1 as defending 173 was never easy against GT’s dangerous batting lineup. MS Dhoni she cleverly used pacer Matheesha Pathirana and applied different tactics to fool the batsmen.

It was a collective effort by the CSK batsmen as the surface was quite slow. It seemed that the squad for CSK was going to be the same in the final as well, Devon Conway will play the role of anchor and then capitalize on the start.

It seems unlikely that Mitchell Santner will get a game as mystery spinner Maheesh Theekshana has been doing a good job for the team and his variations are pretty hard for hitters to pick from.

It would be interesting to see if Ambati Rayudu gets another chance as the senior batsman has scored 139 runs in 11 innings at an average of 15.44 and strike rate of 132.38 and has found it difficult to dictate terms against the opposition.

For Chennai, the tactician that is MS Dhoni counts a lot –Kevin Pietersen

Kevin Pietersen in his blog for the Betway website compared the MI and CSK sides and stated that the two teams have incredible leadership. Kevin Pietersen noted that CSK have the tactician in the form of MS Dhoni and the reassurance of CSK head coach Stephen Fleming.

“Both CSK and MI have incredible leadership, stable leadership and they have bowling attacks that do the business. They have quality in everything. For Chennai, the tactic that is MS Dhoni counts a lot, and Stephen Fleming’s calm counts a lot.” Kevin Pietersen said.

“When you look at the Mumbai Indians, they have a team that doesn’t start well, but once they get going they are brilliant. Cameron Green has been a terrific buy for them, and they’ve done much better this year, despite missing Jofra Archer and Jasprit Bumrah.

“For them to be in the position they are in, almost in a franchise-building phase, is off the charts. No one would have expected that they would have done so well this year. They have stood out tremendously,” added Kevin Pietersen.
