Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif also opined that this week is going to be an interesting one because no team would like to take their chances.
Kaif said on Cricket Live on Star Sports, “No team can afford to take the others lightly. Any team is capable of beating anyone. Each team will try their best to get those two crucial points. It’s time for the big players to show their mettle and take their team forward.”
CSK will once again face southern rivals RCB in the ‘Jordar Week’, and experts are anticipating a mouth-watering contest.
Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar believes Super Kings have a lot of catching up to do, but the defending champions can still make a turnaround and qualify for the playoffs.
Speaking on Cricket Live on Star Sports, Gavaskar said, “They have a lot of catching up to do, but they are a team that knows how to make a comeback. But they need to turn it around quickly. We saw what happened with KKR last year. When the tournament was being held in India, KKR were nowhere in the picture, but in the UAE, they won just about everything and went into the finals. So things can turn around in an instant in this tournament.”
