Former India fast bowler S Sreesanth feels that Chennai Super Kings could not win the Indian Premier League trophy this year. CSK are the four-time IPL champions, with their latest title coming in the year 2021. The team is behind only Mumbai Indians – who have won five editions of the IPL – despite being banned from the league for two consecutive seasons. MS Dhoni has been the architect of CSK’s glory as all the titles have come under his rule. He will once again be seen leading the team in IPL 2023, however, Sreesanth feels that the team will not be able to win the trophy this year.

“I don’t think so (that CSK will win IPL 2023). There is only one Mallu captain – Sanju Samson – I am backing them (Rajasthan Royals). But it would be fun if a new team wins. I would love it. If RCB wins IPL 2023. Virat (Kohli) has done a lot for Indian cricket… It will be great if RCB wins,” Sreesanth told Sports Yaari.

RCB have played three IPL finals so far, but failed to win any. They first entered the summit clash of the cash-rich league in 2009, in which they lost to the now-defunct team Deccan Chargers. The side played their second final in the year 2011 where CSK got the better of them. Their latest defeat in an IPL final came at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2016.

Kolkata Knight Riders are the third most successful team in the IPL with two titles behind Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.
