Host Gujrat Titans show their explosive batting performance against Kolkata’s three mystery spinners in today’s GT vs KKR match in IPL 2023. A great knock by all-rounder Vijay Shankar takes GT’s total to 200 per. Sai Sudarshan and Gill also play their skilful shots to attract the spectators.

In Sunday Blockbuster, the first encounter is between two-time champions KKR & previous year’s winning team GT. In Ahmedabad’s high-scoring ground, GT captain Rashid Khan won the toss and decided to bat first. Today in Hardik Pandya’s absence afghan mystery spinner Rashid Khan leads the team GT. 

Saha & Gill the opening pair comes to open as usual, & at first, they didn’t play freely because of KKR’s bowler’s tight length. That’s why Saha loses his wicket to mystery spinner Sunil Narine. He scored 17 runs in 17 balls and hits three fours in his small innings. 

The previous match-winner Sai Sudarsan & Gill maintain the GT’s rising total. Gill scored 39 runs in 31 balls. He hits consecutive three boundaries to Varun Chakravathy. After he got caught by Umesh Yadav in the long-off, Sai Sudarsan came to his real character. By hitting amazing shots against KKR’s spinners and fast bowlers, he scored another half-century in just 38 balls. In his crucial knock, he hits three fours & two big sixes.

At first, he slowly set his eye on the pitch and bowlers. Then he started to play freely. In the 19th over of the match, in Lockie Ferguson’s over he hits two big sixes and one four. He takes a total of 25 runs in his over. That’s not over in the 20th over when Lord Shardul comes to bowl Shankar starts his over with three consecutive sixes, and also hit a six in the last ball of the over.
