Aakash Chopra doesn’t see Gujarat Titans (GT) defending the Indian Premier League (IPL) title they won last year.
The Titans defeated the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 15th season of the tournament to lift the trophy in their maiden season.
GT will lock horns with the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the opening game at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Friday, March 31.
“I don’t see them winning the title again, as it has happened only twice. They can’t replicate the success of Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. GT have the team to reach playoffs, but they can’t lift the trophy,” he said.
While MS Dhoni-led team won the titles in 2010 and 2011, Rohit Sharma’s side achieved the milestone in 2019 and 2020.
