Gujarat Titans Squad 2023: The IPL Mini-Auctions have concluded with some riveting bids to grab the services of top overseas and onshore talent. Defending champions Gujarat Titans had a tough time at the auctions but have bought their desired cricketers to retain their title ahead of the upcoming season.
Here is Gujarat Titans complete squad for IPL 2023:
Gujarat Giants Auction Picks
1. Shivam Mavi
Interestingly, uncapped Indian paceman Shivam Mavi emerged as Gujarat Titans most expensive pick of the mini-auctions. Titans bought Mavi for a whopping Rs. 6 crores to strengthen their bowling attack alongside ace bowlers Mohammed Shami, Rashid Khan, and Alzarri Joseph.
2. Joshua Little
Gujarat Titans are more concerned about their frontline bowling attack as they have bagged the services of another tall Irish Left-Arm paceman Joshua Little for Rs. 4.4 crores. Little filled in the void gap of a left-arm pacer as Titans glittery bowling attack will further turn out to be more destructive.
Besides these scintillating pacemen, Titans also bought ace New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson and Indian wicketkeeper KS Bharat to stabilize their frontline batting attack. Other fascinating picks of Titans include Caribbean all-rounder Odeon Smith, Urvil Patel, and Mohit Sharma.
Gujarat Titans Retained Players
Gujarat Titans retained a long list of performing players after the victorious triumph in the previous edition. The list includes incumbent skipper and all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Shubhman Gill, David Miller, Matthew Wade, Rahul Tewatia, R Sai Kishore, Abhinav Manohar, Wriddhiman Saha, Sai Sudarshan, and Vijay Shankar.
Amongst the striking bowlers, Gujarat Titans have retained Mohammed Shami, Rashid Khan, Jayant Yadav, Darshan Nalkhande, Yash Dayal, Pradeep Sangwan, and Noor Ahmed.
Gujarat Titans Released Players
Gujarat Titans made a costly trade deal with Kolkata Knight Riders and released two veteran oversea athletes including explosive Afghanistan batsman Rahmanullah Gurbaz and prolific Kiwi paceman Lockie Ferguson.
