IPL 2023: Gujarat Titans (GT) Full Squad, Predicted Playing XI, Coaching Staff And Sponsors List. Gujarat Titans were the debutants in the last edition of the IPL, and they started their journey by creating history by winning the title in their debut year. They are the second team in the IPL to do so after the Rajasthan Royals won it in the first edition (2008) .
Gujarat Titans had an excellent piece of the auction this year; they were rock solid and 100% successful in picking all the players whom they intended to bid on. They picked up some vital overseas players like Kane Williamson (NZ), Odean Smith (WI), and Irish pacer Joshua Little.
The GT management has not stepped back from investing big bucks in Indian players this year either, with the likes of KS Bharat, Shivam Mavi, Urvil Patel, and Mohit Sharma.

Gujarat Titans Predicted Playing XI For IPL 2023
Top three- Shubman Gill, Kane Williamson and KS. Bharat
With the inclusion of Williamson in the recent mini-auction, we are set to see the opening pair of Gill and Williamson in the upcoming edition of the IPL. At No. 3, we might see the likes of Bharat, who was recently added to India’s squad, against New Zealand and then Australia.
Middle Order – David Miller, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Tewatiya and Rashid Khan
The Titans’ middle order is quite similar to last year and formidable, with the skipper leading from the front and finishers being an eminent part of this middle order in Miller, Tewatiya, and Rashid, who played some vital cameos to anchor GT’s win with the bat.
Lower order or Bowling attack – Shivam Mavi, R Sai Kishore, Mohammad Shami and Joshua Little
Indian pacers Mavi and Shami are must-picks and need no explanation. With Yash Dayal, R Sai Kishore, Alzarri Joseph, Odean Smith, and Josh Little as other options. It is difficult to pick any two with only one overseas option, however, with the left armer bringing in a natural angle for the batter.
Joshua Little is picked over other overseas, and now with three frontline pacers and skipper Pandya as their fourth seam bowling option, Sai Kishore changes the scenario with his slow spin alongside Rashid in the middle overs.
