The second qualifying match of IPL 2023 will be played today. In this match, the teams of Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians will go head to head. Whoever wins this match between the two teams will reach the final while the losing team’s journey will end here in the IPL. In such a situation, the captains of both teams would like to win this match at all costs. But before this match, a new problem arose in front of GT captain Hardik Pandya. This issue is regarding the selection of play 11.
Pandya trapped in this dilemma
In fact, the Gujarat Titans team has performed brilliantly this year. His team finished first in the points table this year. Team captain Hardik Pandya makes very few changes to his 11 game. This is the reason why his team ranks second after CSK in the list of least changed teams playing 11 this year. But in the first qualifying game against CSK, Hardik Pandya suddenly made a big change in his 11 game, leaving Yash Dayal out of the 11 game and giving Darshan Nalkande a chance. This was Darshan Nalkande’s debut match in the IPL.
Darshan Nalkande found himself in trouble after the match against CSK. He looked like he had some kind of injury. In such a situation, a big problem facing captain Hardik Pandya is who he will now give a chance in his 11 game. However, there is no news about Darshan Nalkande’s injury. Yash Dayal also got a chance to play only one match after that match against KKR. Pandya does not make many changes in his game 11. In such a situation, he will come out on the field with almost the same game 11 that he entered the last match with.
Gujarat Titans game 11 could be like this
Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (week), Hardik Pandya (c), Dasun Shanaka, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Darshan Nalkande / Yash Dayal, Mohit Sharma, Noor Ahmed, Mohammed Shami
