New Delhi: Went from Pune to Mumbai, went to Ahmedabad from Mumbai, still did not get any answer. Only question remained for MS Dhoni. Dhoni will now try to find the answer to his same question in Chennai against Gujarat Titans. This is the question of victory, which Dhoni has repeatedly failed to achieve against Hardik Pandya’s team.
Till now 3 matches between CSK and GT were played in Pune, Mumbai and Ahmedabad and Chennai Super Kings had to face defeat in all three. But, the story of the match to be held in Chennai will be slightly different. Chennai is the fort of MS Dhoni. It is their house. That is, there is a good chance of opening the account of victory against Gujarat Titans in IPL.

What will be the answer to the biggest question in Chennai?
Now the fourth clash of IPL is between the two teams in Chennai. This will be the first qualifier match of IPL 2023. Means the one who wins it will play the final directly. And, Dhoni would not want to let go of this big opportunity at all. But, this intention will come true only when CSK will crack down on their continuous defeat against Gujarat Titans.
