Gujarat Titans, IPL 2023: The Gujarat Titans (GT), who kept most of the core that helped them win the championship in their inaugural season, are in a great position going into the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL).
At the IPL 2023 auction, GT also made some wise purchases as they chose to strengthen their bench while filling one or two holes in their starting lineup. In the vanguard of the Titans’ title defense will be star players Hardik Pandya, Rashid Khan, and Shubman Gill.
Gujarat also has a number of players on discounted contracts that provide the organization with more than their asking prices would indicate. These three GT players are far more valuable than their IPL 2023 contracts.
IPL 2023: Here are 3 Gujarat Titans Players Who Might Outperform their Net Worth
B Sai Sudharsan
There aren’t many domestic top-order specialists for Gujarat Titans B One of the few candidates on their roster is Sai Sudharsan, who debuted for the team in the IPL last year. The youthful player was purchased at the IPL 2022 mega-auction for merely 20 lakh.
Sai Sudharsan has a long future ahead of him and recently completed the domestic season for Tamil Nadu in superb form across all formats. Although he needs to work on his power game, the young left-hander has a level mind to go along with his tremendous talent. He can even contribute a little spin.
For the upcoming IPL season, Sai Sudharsan might play a crucial role in the GT playing XI.
Seeing Alzarri Joseph develop as a white-ball bowler has been amazing. Along with his blistering pace, the tall fast bowler has expanded his repertoire by adding accuracy and variety.
Joseph has distinguished himself as a standout strike bowler for each team he has played for over the past two years. Near the close of IPL 2022, the West Indian also established himself as a regular in the GT playing XI. The Titans only paid 2.4 crores for his services.
While express pacers are uncommon, people like Mark Wood and Lockie Ferguson make far more money than Joseph. GT are fortunate to have him on such a fair deal.
Only 3 crores were paid for David Miller at the IPL 2022 mega-auction! Franchises’ lack of interest in him was partly understandable given that he had only featured in 10 games across his previous two IPL seasons, neither of which had been particularly successful. Yet the South African, who had excelled for his nation in white-ball cricket, deserved greater attention.
But, GT didn’t object and immediately placed him in their middle order. Miller returned the favor by contributing significantly to the team’s championship victory by scoring 481 runs at an average of 68.71 and a strike rate of 142.73. His enhanced ability to deal with spin and unparalleled finishing abilities were obvious to all.
Miller’s value well exceeds the 3-crore contract he now has. The Titans will be hoping for him to have another productive season.
