The Gujarat Titans (GT) have been given a major blow after their ace pace bowler Mohammed Shami was ruled out of the forthcoming Indian Premier League season (IPL 2024). 

Mohammad Shami had surgery in the UK after being urged to do so by the NCA. The operation targeted his Achilles tendon, which had been troubling him since the World Cup. Shami stated that the healing process will take some time, and he hopes to resume his cricketing career soon.

Shami won the purple cap last year with 28 wickets to his name in 17 matches at an average of 18.61 and he will be missed in IPL 2024. This means that the IPL 2022 champions and finalists of IPL 2023, Gujarat Titans will need to find a replacement for the pacer in the upcoming IPL 2024. 

Here are 3 players who can replace Mohammed Shami in the Gujarat Titans squad for IPL 2024:

Ishan Porel is unlucky to have just played one IPL match in his career. He had made a name for himself in the U19 World Cup in 2018. While his teammates Shubman Gill, Prithvi Shaw, Shivam Mavi, and Arshdeep Singh to name a few, have gone on to play for India, Porel’s career has been set back by injuries.

He has played just one IPL match for Punjab Kings in 2021 and picked one wicket for 39 runs. Since then, the pacer has gone unnoticed due to injury and form issues. He remained unsold, even at the IPL 2024 auction. However, Shami's exclusion may provide an opportunity for him to play in the future season. Porel has played 29 T20 matches in his career, taking 40 wickets. His economy of 7.17 is excellent, and the Gujarat Titans could consider him a potential substitute for Shami.
