Updated on: Apr 29, 2023 4:13 pm IST
The important news update coming from the Gujarat Titans (GT) camp is that they are still not playing Sai Sudharsan in their 8th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. It has been a brilliant IPL 2023 campaign for the defending champions Gujarat Titans so far as they have managed to register a total of 5 amazing victories from their 7 games in the ongoing tournament. However, the Hardik Pandya-led GT team will be hoping to continue their fine form in the rest of the competition as well.
KKR vs GT: Why is Sai Sudharsan Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?
After having won the toss and opting to bowl first, the Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya stated that Sai Sudharsan is still not part of the starting GT playing XI for today’s KKR vs GT match. However, the talented middle-order batsman 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 game. Sudharsan has batted excellently well for the Gujarat Titans in IPL 2023 having scored 176 runs from 5 matches at an average of over 44 that also includes a match-winning half-century against Delhi Capitals. But he has not been part of the GT side in the last few games as the Gujarat Titans are currently using hard-hitter Abhinav Manohar in the middle-order.
“We will bowl first. Just because of the weather, it was bright when we came and we thought we should bat, but it has changed now. I’m pretty happy with where we are, 7 games gone, 7 more to come, we need to play good cricket and qualify for the playoffs. We will learn from the losses as well, but we just need to play some consistent cricket. We are playing the same team,” said Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya during the toss.
