Former Australia captain Aaron Finch stated that the Gujarat Titans (GT), the current league champions, would have serious concerns if opener Shubman Gill failed to score. The first game of the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) will take place on March 31 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad between GT and the four-time champion Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
The Hardik Pandya-led team is heavily reliant on Gill in the top order, according to Finch, who was previewing GT’s team on Star Sports, the official IPL broadcaster. The 36-year-old claimed that Gill is a fantastic player with a high rate of scoring. If the 23-year-old performs well, he continued, GT’s middle order will go big and become difficult to beat. Gill finished the 2022 season as the second-highest run scorer for GT and sixth overall with 483 runs from 16 matches.
Shubman Gill is the X-factor for the Gujarat Titans. We know how freely he can score, he is such a damaging player, and when he gets in, he goes really big. If he fires, their middle order will function very well, and they will be very difficult to beat. If he does not fire, I think a concern area for Gujarat Titans will be their top order.
They have a great deal of power, experience, and firepower in that middle order, but if they advance too quickly, they will run into trouble, he continued.
David Miller will be the Gujarat Titans player to watch out for this season: Finch
David Miller will be the GT player to watch out for in the 2023 IPL, according to Finch, who guided Australia to their first ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Trophy. Last year, the South African batter averaged 68.71 runs per game, totaling 481 runs. Miller will notably join the GT team on April 3, following the Holland series.
David Miller will be the Gujarat Titans player to watch out for this season, according to Finch.
Finch continued to discuss GT’s advantages, saying that the team’s depth in quick bowling and experience are its most crucial assets. He continued by saying that they have a wide range of players that are adaptable to various playing surfaces.
