#1 Virat Kohli vs Moeen Ali

Virat Kohli’s cautious approach against spin has been pretty evident in IPL 2023 and MS Dhoni may unleash Moeen Ali early on looking for his wicket. They have met in IPL only twice and even in that Moeen dismissed Kohli once. He conceded just four runs in seven balls. Kohli has scored 618 runs in 83 IPL innings against right-arm off-spinners while getting dismissed 14 times (SR: 114.44).

#2 Ruturaj Gaikwad vs Mohammed Siraj

Ruturaj Gaikwad has been exceptional for CSK ever since making his debut in 2020. He will have to negotiate with Mohammed Siraj in the powerplays. The duo met each other in five innings and Ruturaj amassed 52 runs at a strike rate of 144.44, without getting dismissed. Siraj has bowled 59 dot balls, the most by any bowler in IPL 2023.

#3 Glenn Maxwell vs Ravindra Jadeja

Glenn Maxwell will be very important for RCB in the middle overs and in that phase, he will have to tackle Ravindra Jadeja’s bowling. Maxwell and Jadeja have faced each other in 10 IPL innings and the former has got out six times. The Australian dasher has scored 49 runs in 40 deliveries against Jadeja (SR: 122.50). He has failed to hit a single maximum.
