IPL 2023: Gujarat Titans bowler going through a bad phase, was a star performer last season

New Delhi. In the Indian Premier League-2003 (IPL 2023), if any team is most impressed by its performance, then it is Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans. Defending champions Gujarat Titans have 16 points after 8 wins in 11 matches and their entry in the playoffs is certain. Hardik’s team is considered to be a strong contender to become the champion this time also, veteran cricketer AB de Villiers has also predicted to become the winner of GT. Naturally, the major players have contributed equally to the team’s excellent performance so far.

While Shubman Gill, captain Hardik Pandya, Vijay Shankar, wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha and David Miller have done full justice to their talents in batting, Rahul Tewatia has also lived up to the role of finisher in the limited opportunities he got. The reins of bowling are on the experienced shoulders of Mohammed Shami, Rashid Khan and Mohit Sharma, who are getting full support from Noor Ahmed and Alzarri Joseph. If any player is feeling ‘neglected’ this season, then it is Yash Dayal.

Yash Dayal has not played since he was hit for 5 consecutive sixes
In IPL 2023, if any player could not contribute to the spectacular performance of Gujarat Titans, then it is left-arm fast bowler Yash Dayal. In the last season, Yash had performed strongly with bowling. Talking about IPL 2023, KKR’s Rinku Singh hit consecutive sixes on the last 5 balls of Yash Dayal’s over and Gujarat had to face defeat.

This defeat has mentally hurt Yash Dayal a lot. Although all the GT players have fully supported Yash, but after this match, this bowler could not find a place in the playing XI. Got a chance to play three matches in the season but he could not get any wicket.

Yash did 11 ‘hunts’ in IPL 2022
This Yash was the star performer of Gujarat in the last season IPL 2022. Yash was the fourth most successful bowler in GT last year, taking 11 wickets in 9 matches at an average of 26.90. His economy was 9.25 and strike rate was 17.4. Shami (20), Rashid Khan (19) and Lockie Ferguson (12) took more wickets than Yash Dayal for Gujarat Titans this season.
