IPL 2023: Rashid Khan will be Gujarat Titans' trump card in Qualifier 1, says Virender Sehwag

Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 is all set to host the highly-anticipated Qualifier 1 between defending champions Gujarat Titans and four-time champions Chennai Super Kings at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday.

The two teams locked horns in the opening encounter of IPL 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium where Hardik Pandya and his men emerged victorious by 5 wickets at home.

Both CSK and GT have been similar in their approach and it will be an evenly poised contest at Chepauk when these two heavyweights collide in the first playoff match of the season.

Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag reckons the Afghanistan spin sensation will be the trump card for the defending champions.

Speaking on Star Sports' Cricket Live, Sehwag said, "Rashid Khan is the trump card for Gujarat. If they want wickets, they bring him. And then the way Hardik has used Rashid, it is commendable."

"Rashid likes to break partnerships and now he has become the most successful bowler of this season on the basis of his excellent performance," he added.
