Gujarat Titans beat Kolkata Knight Riders in the only game that they played against each other in IPL 2022. As it turned out, Gujarat went on to win their maiden IPL title in their very first season, KKR, meanwhile, finished seventh on the points table under Shreyas Iyer.

KKR’s slump in 2022 after reaching the finals in IPL 2021 came as a surprise to many. They had the side to go all the way but they never found the combination amongst their players. The side made as many as 21 changes but still, players like Mohammad Nabi and Chamika Karunaratne did not find a place in the XI.

The selections of players were hugely debated and criticised as KKR’s season was a classic case of players not playing to their potential. The IPL 2023 auction will be held in February 2023 and KKR have a chance to pick some of the world’s best players by releasing some of their former players. In this article, we pick three Gujarat Titans players KKR can pick ahead of IPL 2023.

The veteran Bengal wicketkeeper can come back to KKR if the franchise is interested in roping him in. Saha batted with intent inside the powerplay for Gujarat and scored over 300 runs in the season. He can be similarly useful as an opener for KKR and also solve their search for an Indian keeper-batsman.
