Former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth praised Prithvi Shaw
On Super Saturday, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will face Delhi Capitals (DC) in the afternoon match, while Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will host Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the evening game. A victory for CSK and LSG will secure their places in the playoffs, while DC and KKR will aim to disrupt their opponents’ chances and complicate the playoff race.
Former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth praised Prithvi Shaw for his match-winning half-century against Punjab Kings. Shaw, who had a challenging IPL 2023 season, finally got an opportunity to play after spending a month on the bench. Sreesanth expressed his satisfaction with Shaw’s performance and hoped that the Mumbai batsman would finish the season strongly.
Another young player to watch out for in the match is Sri Lankan fast bowler Matheesha Pathirana, who has made valuable contributions to CSK. Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh believes that Pathirana has been utilized effectively by captain MS Dhoni and that the team’s bowling coach, Dwayne Bravo, has played a crucial role in nurturing his talent.
In the second game of the day, LSG will face KKR at Eden Gardens. Krunal Pandya-led LSG will face a tough challenge against a spirited KKR side. According to Mohammed Kaif, former Indian cricketer, Marcus Stoinis, the Australian all-rounder, will be a key player for LSG in this virtual quarter-final match, given his recent impressive performances.
KKR, playing their last league game at home in this edition, will be eager to finish on a high note. Nitish Rana and his teammates will be aiming for a victory, and Rinku Singh, who has emerged as a valuable finisher, has been a standout performer for KKR in IPL 2023.
