Team out of IPL Playoff, foreign players said, Shubman Gill still has a lot to learn


Bengaluru. Gujarat Titans, the former champion team of the Indian Premier League, has suffered a huge blow after their defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The team’s playoff hopes are almost over. This season the team came to play with a new young captain. Shubman Gill is facing difficulties as the captain of Gujarat Titans but senior batsman David Miller has supported him and said that the 24-year-old player is rapidly ‘adjusting’ to the role.

Last year’s runner-up under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya and 2022 champion Titans team is running at ninth position in the points table under the captaincy of Gill. His hopes of making it to the play-offs are almost over.

“Shubman is an extraordinary player, as we all know,” Miller said in a press conference after the Titans’ four-wicket defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Saturday. He’s still young and has a lot to learn but I think he’s adjusting really well to captaincy. But I think it’s also difficult because there’s so little margin for error.”

Miller also cited the absence of experienced fast bowler Mohammed Shami, who is recovering from ankle surgery, as a reason for the team’s poor performance with the ball in the power play. He said, “Of course Shami had performed brilliantly in the power play. That’s why we feel that we are missing him in the power play. He took wickets and kept the economy rate low.

While defending the low score of 148 runs against Bangalore, Titans gave away 92 runs in the power play and due to this, the balance of the match tilted in favor of the home team.
