After the playoff match, CSK and Gujarat are the only teams that have qualified for the final match. In the final match, both the teams will enter the field with their best playing XI. In this article we are going to take a look at five such players of CHSK who are quite likely to be a headache for the Gujarat Titans in the final match. All these five batsmen have played an important role for CSK throughout the IPL season.
1. Devon Conway –
Chennai Super Kings opener Devon Conway has made a significant contribution for CSK in IPL 2023. His aggressive batting helped CSK win some matches of the season and the team could reach the finals. Conway has scored 625 runs in 14 innings of the season. Meanwhile, his average is 52 runs, while the strike rate is 135. His best score of the season is 92 not out.
2. Rituraj Gaikwad –

4. Ravindra Jadeja –
Ravindra Jadeja’s name in the list is not surprising. We all know what Jadeja can do for the team. He has often led his team to victory in matches that were out of hand. His performance in IPL 2023 has also been satisfactory. Jadeja has taken 19 wickets in 15 matches of the season. Meanwhile his economy rate was less than 8, while the average was 20 runs.
