IPL 2023 Auction: 3 Players Above 30 Years Which Gujarat Titans (GT) Can Target. Against all expectations, Gujarat Titans went on to win IPL 2022. No one gave them a chance after the auction ended. However, the management was brilliant with its utilization of resources and tactics.

The team had a few issues after the bright start but finished the tournament well. Nevertheless, the opposition teams would now be warier of GT. The Hardik Pandya-led squad will have to make a few changes and that will start with releasing some cricketers like batter Vijay Shankar, pacer Varun Aaron, Afghanistan spinner youngster Noor Ahmad and West Indies all-rounder Dominic Drakes.

The New Zealand opening batsman Martin Guptill last played in 3 games for SunRisers Hyderabad in 2019. He has scored 270 runs in 13 IPL games averaging 22.5 with 1 fifty. He also played 7 games for Punjab in 2017 and 3 games for Mumbai in 2016. The veteran batter hasn’t always fired in the T20 league but is one of the top run-getters in the shortest format of the game.

Be it his attacking style of play or years of experience in T20 cricket, Martin Guptill has the required credentials to directly fit into the Gujarat Titans team. It would help them to add to their opening combination with the likes of Wriddhiman Saha, Matthew Wade, and Shubman Gill in IPL 2023.
