GT vs MI: Why is Alzarri Joseph Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?
In a shocking call, Gujarat Titans have decided to keep West Indian paceman Alzarri Joseph at bay for the second game on the trot. This means, Noor Ahmed keeps his place in the eleven as Gujarat Titans team management have suspected that the wicket will help the spinners for the second time in a row and they don’t need the extra pace of Alzarri. Check what GT’s skipper Hardik Pandya said at the toss,
“It (pitch) looks good, looks watery. It has been a belter though. The way we fought back, the last game we won but LSG dominated for 36 overs. Credit to the boys the way we came back. We showed what is never give up. Luck was on our side. We are playing the same team. Josh Little comes back for someone, that’s it.”
