Gujarat Titans Preview

Gujarat Titans have a decent squad with rather inexperienced leadership. They are likely to contend for the play-offs.

Strongest XI :

Shubman Gill

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk)

Abhinav Sadarangani

David Miller

Vijay Shankar

Hardik Pandya

Rahul Tewatia

Rashid Khan

Jayant Yadav

Mohammad Shami

Lockie Ferguson

Their top order is rather inexperienced with Shubman Gill being the only with IPL experience. The middle order is experienced with has being lacking recent form across formats. The finishing department looks good on paper but whether they perform well is to be seen. The lower middle order gives a lot of pinch hitting. Rashid,Jayant, Shami, and Ferguson all can score a few runs if needed. Their spin department is excellent with Rashid in great form, a reliable spinner in Jayant Yadav, and an X-factor in Rahul Tewatia. R Sai Kishore is among the reserves. Their pace department guarantees a solid 8 overs in Shami and Ferguson however their other overs can be a concern. Hardik hasn’t bowled in a couple of years and Shankar has not played much in IPL recently. Varun Aaron can be an option. Ashish Nehra has little coaching experience, Gary Kirsten has not had much success in IPL, and Hardik hasn’t been a captain. Their bench is a little unreliable but they have a promising squad who can reach heights if their players are on song.

Predicted finish - 10th
