“GT is CSK 2.0” – Twitter erupts after GT beat MI by 62 runs to make it to the 2nd successive IPL final

Gujarat Titans were by far the best team in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. Notably, they were the first team to qualify for the IPL 2023 playoffs by finishing the league stage as the table-toppers.

However, as it turned out, they surrendered at the hands of Chennai Super Kings in the first qualifier that took place at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai very recently.

Needless to say, they wouldn’t worry much as they got another opportunity to make it to the IPL final. They got the better of Mumbai Indians in the second qualifier at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
