Ravi Shastri, a former India cricketer and head coach, believes the current IPL 2023 champions, Gujarat Titans, will defend their title. Hardik Pandya’s Titans are in first place with 12 points, six wins in nine games, and a respectable Net Run Rate (NRR) of 0.532.
Shastri, a former cricketer, believes that the team’s adaptability and certain players’ consistent performance could help them retain the prestigious title if they maintain their form from the previous tournament.
I believe Gujarat will win the trophy based on their current form and standings. This team demonstrates consistency and adaptability, and seven of eight individuals are consistently performing. Shastri stated on Star Sports that the Gujarat team members complement one another.
David Warner’s Delhi Capitals defeated Gujarat in their most recent match, putting an end to the team’s three-game winning sequence. On Friday, May 5 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur, the Titans will take on the previous season’s runners-up, the Rajasthan Royals, in an effort to regain their winning ways.
Captain Sanju Samson grew up: Ravi Shastri
Shastri lavished praise on Rajasthan captain Sanju Samson prior to the eagerly anticipated matchup between last year’s finalists. The former cricketer was impressed by Sanju’s use of spinners in matches and his progression as franchise leader.
“Captain Sanju Samson has developed maturity. He utilizes his spinners with precision. Shastri asserted that only a capable commander can play with three spinners and employ them intelligently.
After five victories in nine matches, Sanju Samson and companions are positioned fourth in the IPL Points Table with 10 points. In addition, their NRR of 0.800 is the highest among all teams, and they will be anxious to sweep the Titans after their victory on April 16.
