Gavaskar praises Pandya’s calm captaincy, says he has exceeded expectations by taking GT to 2nd successive finals. Gavaskar feels Pandya has become less excitable since taking up captaincy, and that the final against MS Dhoni will be a great opportunity to prove his captaincy skills.

“Like all those who have followed MSD’s career, he (Hardik) has been very clear about his admiration and affection for MSD. They will be extremely amiable and smiling when they enter the toss. 

However, the atmosphere will be entirely different during the 2023 IPL finals. Hardik Pandya has a great chance to demonstrate how quickly he has picked up new skills,” Gavaskar said in an interview with Star Sports on Friday.

Pandya’s Calmness and Composure

Even when things don’t go Gujarat Titans’ way, Hardik maintains his composure and composure. The way he energised the team with an animated pep talk in the huddle before Qualifier 2 vs. MI told the tale of his proactive actions.

Ashish Nehra’s Role

Gavaskar said that Ashish Nehra deserves a lot of the credit for GT’s success and that the head coach is essential to maintaining a fun environment in the locker room. The legendary batsman also emphasised Nehra’s tactical prowess.

Ashish Nehra is someone I would not want to miss. He is one person, and when he is in the lavatory or communication box, you can’t help but laugh. He makes everything seem so simple, and he is among the cricketers with the best minds, according to Gavaskar.

CSK’s Experience

Despite the fact that CSK is in their tenth final and has experienced many high-pressure situations before, Gavaskar thinks Gujarat Titans will give MS Dhoni’s team a tough fight on Sunday.

They have consistently been a top-tier team. Take a look at how they topped the table. With 20 total points, they outscored Chennai Super Kings by 3. It demonstrates Gujarat Titans’ hegemony during the league stages. 

That they made it to the final should not have come as a surprise. They have played in champions cricket. Therefore, they are in the championship. CSK is aware that they are up against a fierce opponent, he continued.


Since taking charge of the Gujarat Titans, Gavaskar praises Pandya’s calm captaincy. He has demonstrated his ability to handle stress and guide his team to victory. In the championship match against Chennai Super Kings, he will try to accomplish the same.
