Defending champions Gujarat Titans will take on Chennai Super Kings in an IPL 2023 season opener. No one even gave them a chance in the last season, but this season, everyone will have a great deal of hope associated with their performance.
KS Bharat might pip Saha for the opener's slot along with Shubman Gill. Kane Williamson will be a perfect batter to bat at number three with Hardik Pandya continuing to bat at his previous year's position - number 5.
Miller is unavailable for the first few games, and Wade would be a perfect replacement along with Rahul Tewatia, Odean Smith and Rashid Khan to finish things off. Rashid Khan and Mohammed Shami will lead the bowling attack along with Sai Kishore and Yash Dayal, with Odean Smith and Rahul Tewatia acting as part-time options. Hardik Pandya too will have an important role to play with the ball.
