Updated on: May 21, 2023 9:04 pm IST
The Gujarat Titans (GT) have not included Vijay Shankar in their starting XI for their 14th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) taking place at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Things worked out amazingly well for the Gujarat Titans recently in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2023 season as they defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by a margin of 34 runs in their previous game. GT will once again finish the league stage at the top position on the points table and will be facing Chennai Super Kings in the Qualifier 1 of IPL 2023.
RCB vs GT: Why is Vijay Shankar Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?
During the toss, Gujarat Titans skipper Hardik Pandya stated that Vijay Shankar is not included in the starting GT playing 11 for today’s RCB vs GT match. However, he is absolutely fit and part of the substitute members list out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the game. The right-handed batsman missed the last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad due to a niggle. In the IPL 2023 season, Shankar has showcased an impressive performance, accumulating 234 runs from 10 games. His strike-rate of over 163 is truly remarkable, and he has also contributed with two impactful half-centuries.
“We are gonna bowl with the weather around. Just want to know how much we are going to chase. For us to win games and continue the momentum, I believe in good habits. Just want to go out there and play some good cricket. For us this is as important game as the next game. We are playing the same team,” said Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya during the toss.
