GT vs CSK is Master Vs Apprentice Clash: Harsha Bhogle

While speaking on Cricbuzz, commentator Harsha Bhogle said that GT vs CSK game is like a master vs apprentice clash. He was also worried if Hardik Pandya will bowl in the match as he skipped bowling overs in the previous clash.

“It will be the master versus the apprentice. I was a little worried by the Hardik Pandya situation as he didn’t bat or bowl against RCB. But he needs to bowl, because when he is bowling with the new ball alongside Mohammed Shami, he is very good when he gets the ball moving. So, I would like to see that,” said Bhogle.

Harsha Bhogle, who is also a commentator and presenter in IPL 2023, pointed out that the pitch will favour Chennai Super Kings because it is their home game. However, he also said that GT is not bad in low-scoring games.

“This will be a track that favors Chennai. It depends on how Gujarat Titans can use that situation. But remember that GT are not bad playing a 150-160 game. GT can also use Jayant Yadav as an Impact Player. If Hardik could bowl, they can get in Jayant Yadav instead of Yash Dayal if it is that kind of track because they will have that extra pacer. I just hope his back is fine,” Bhogle further said.
