Aakash Chopra: Two left-handers are the key to the success of Gujarat Titans

Dynamite Jason Roy, the England opener, startled everyone by withdrawing from the IPL 2022 due to bio-bubble fatigue. Gujarat Titans(GT), a new entry, signed the English batter for INR two crore. Nevertheless, on March 1, he took to social media to announce that he needed to withdraw from this year's major tournament because he hoped to spend more time with his family.

Furthermore, former India batsman Aakash Chopra has stated that the Gujarat-based club will now be depending on two veteran left-handers, David Miller and Matthew Wade, throughout the competition. The cricketer-turned cricket commentator singled out David Miller, saying that the South African middle-order batsman has to have a killing season.

Chopra wrote on a social media page that GT's intentions might wind up focusing around two lefties—Wade as an opener and Miller as a finisher, paired with Hardik. He commented that Miller must have a monster season for them to have a solid and successful season.

Jason Roy was acquired for a bargain price by GT during the IPL 2022 mega auction in order to team up with young and talented Shubman Gill and provide them with quick beginnings. The South African-born cricketer is in his prime, having scored 303 runs in six matches at an average of 50.50, including a century and two half-centuries for the Quetta Gladiators in the recently finished PSL 2022. As a result, it will undoubtedly be a significant setback to the Gujarat Titans, who will be anxiously seeking new options.

Hardik Pandya, the renowned India all-rounder, will lead the Gujarat Titans team. The 15th edition of the lucrative event kicks off on March 26 with 70 games spread across four Maharashtra venues, including Mumbai and Pune. The itinerary as a whole has yet to be revealed. It has been established, however, that the two-month event will be staged in India according to a source.
