IPL 2023News

“It’s pretty surprising how they don’t even pick champion teams like CSK and MI”, Twitter reacts as the predictions of experts before IPL 2023 stating CSK won’t reach the Top 2

Before the season started, many did not see CSK reaching the playoffs. Cut to a few months later, they are in the Top 2 and will be playing Qualifier 1 at Chepauk. It is a stunning turnaround to make the predictions of many esteemed former cricketers go wrong. On that note, here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted to the predictions of experts before IPL 2023 stating CSK won’t reach the Top 2.


Many experts predicted CSK won’t reach the Top 2 in IPL 2023

CSK did not have a great outing last season. Since then, the team had not improved much, barring the signings of the likes of Ben Stokes. They also had a lot of injury issues at the start with the likes of Kyle Jamieson, Deepak Chahar, Mukesh Choudhary and Simarjeet Singh all struggling. There were a few availability problems, too. Despite this, the team managed to do well in the tournament and is currently in the Top 2.

Credit must go to the management and MS Dhoni for pulling this off. It also needs to be noted that while Ambati Rayudu and Ravindra Jadeja were in poor form with the bat, Maheesh Theekshana has not done much with the ball. It was players like Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Dube and Matheesha Pathirana who stepped up and made CSK a strong squad in IPL 2023. Of course, the opening pair has had significant contribution, with them stepping up almost every fixture. All these reasons, added with the captaincy of MS Dhoni, makes CSK a hot favourite to win this season and add fifth IPL trophy to the cabinet.

Meanwhile, the fans of CSK and MS Dhoni on Twitter trolled the expert predictions that did not give a chance to their team before the season. Here is a look at some of these reactions:
