Why Shubman Gill Not Playing MI vs GT IPL 2023 Match no 57

In a crucial news development, the Gujarat Titans (GT) are not playing their premier opening batsman Shubman Gill in their starting XI for their 8th game of Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) being played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The Gujarat Titans will certainly be feeling very much high on momentum after having registered two brilliant back-to-back victories against Mumbai Indians and Lucknow Super Giants recently in IPL 2023 season.

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

During the toss, it was stated that premier opener Shubman Gill is not included in the starting GT playing 11 for this KKR vs GT match. Interestingly, the talented and in-form Indian opening batsman is part of the five substitute members out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the match. Shubman has been in a sensational form for the Gujarat Titans in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2023 so far having notched up a total of 284 runs from 7 games at an average of over 40 that includes as many as 3 half-centuries. Therefore, Shubman Gill will definitely come out as the Impact Player during the second innings of the KKR vs GT IPL 2023 match.

“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.
