IPL 2023 is expected to be a fascinating contest as this time BCCI is all set to bring back the home & away venue system. CSK fans would be thrilled as they would see their skipper MS Dhoni play in front of his home ground. There are some reports which suggest that this would be the last season of MS Dhoni.
The Star batters Rohit Sharma & Virat Kohli would be keen to make a mark in the 2023 edition. This time NCA & IPL franchises are going to work in tandem to manage the workload of players ahead of the World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23) & ODI World Cup 2023.
Anil Kumble on IPL All Time XI
Anil Kumble was having an interaction with Jio Cinema and was asked about his all time IPL XI. “It is very difficult to get AB de Villiers in my team because MS Dhoni comes in at five as captain and wicket keeper and Pollard at six. I would look at the impact the particular player has had at No. 6 in terms of winning matches from difficult positions and of course, titles is something that I looked at as well, at No. 6.” said Anil Kumble.
IPL All Time XI: Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, Andre Russell, Hardik Pandya, Sunil Narine, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga.
Exciting Contest on Cards
All eyes would be on MI & CSK as these two franchises had a forgettable IPL 2022. MI this time have bought the all-rounder Cameron Green and most likely he will bat at the top of the order as he has quite a great hitting prowess which can dismantle the opponent.
The defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) will have a tough task on their hands as CSK & MI are the only teams who have successfully defended the title. Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) would be hoping to go one step ahead and win the championship as last time they showed a lot of promise.
