GT vs DC: Why is Shubman Gill Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

During the toss, it was stated that Shubman Gill is once again not included in the starting GT playing 11 for this GT vs DC match on Tuesday. However, the in-form right-handed opener is absolutely fit and part of the five substitute members out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the match. Incidentally, while coming as an Impact Player, Shubman notched up a fine knock of 49 runs off 35 balls in the last match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Gill has been in an exceptional form during the ongoing IPL 2023 season having smashed 333 runs from 8 matches at a strike-rate of over 140 that includes as many as 3 half-centuries. Thus, he is quite certain to come out as an Impact Player for the Gujarat Titans in today’s GT vs DC IPL 2023 match as well.

“We were planning to bowl as well, thought chasing would be an ideal thing here. We spoke earlier about the kind of intent we keep and bowling wise we have been fantastic and want to stay calm and humble. We are playing the same team,” said Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya during the toss.
