IPL 2023 GT vs RR: Predicted playing XIs of both teams, Match 23
Here are the predicted playing XIs for both the teams for Match 23 of IPL 2023 between GT and RR.
Mohit Sharma replaced Yash Dayal in the previous match and produced a game-changing spell to walk away with the Player of the Match award. While GT might look to rope in an additional spinner in the form of R Sai Kishor as the season gets underway, they are unlikely to make any changes to their side for now.
Vijay Shankar can come in as an impact player if GT bats in the second innings.
GT’s predicted playing XI for Match 23 of IPL 2023
Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Sai Sudharsan, Hardik Pandya (c), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Shami, Josh Little, Alzarri Joseph, Mohit Sharma.
Impact players: Vijay Shankar, R Sai Kishore, Abhinav Manohar, Shivam Mavi, Jayant Yadav.
RR predicted the playing XI for Match 23 of IPL 2023
Devdutt Padikkal replaced Riyan Parag against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and played a fine duck that gave RR some momentum after the early wicket of Yashasvi Jaiswal. Padikkal can keep Parag out of the playing XI for the time being.
Sanju Samson said that Trent Boult’s injury was minor, so the left-handed batsman can regain his place in the team.
If Boult doesn’t fit in, the Royals will have to decide how to use their fourth overseas slot. While Adam Zampa came in handy in Chepauk, he may not have the same impact in Ahmedabad.
RR’s predicted playing XI for Match 23 of IPL 2023
Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, Jason Holder, Ravichandran Ashwin, Sandeep Sharma, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal.
Impact player: Riyan Parag, KM Asif, Akash Vashisht, Murugan Ashwin, Kuldeep Sen.
