In the last edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Gujarat Titans (GT) made their debut and outclassed all the teams to win the title. During their campaign, GT looked confident under their skipper Hardik Pandya. Talented players such as Shubman Gill, David Miller, Mohammed Shami, Rashid Khan, and captain Pandya gave their best to help the team dominate the competition.

They also topped the table with ten victories in 14 matches in the round-robin stage. Later, in the knockout round, they hammered Rajasthan Royals (RR) twice and clinched the title.

Based on GT’s formidable debut, it could be said that it won’t be easy for other franchises to stop the defending champions in the 2023 edition either. It will take a gun IPL XI featuring players from across teams to defeat the champions of the 2022 edition.

Here is the XI that can beat the defending champions GT:

11. Yuzvendra Chahal (Rajasthan Royals)

Currently, Yuzvendra Chahal is an integral part of Rajasthan Royals (RR) as he delivered his best performance in the league clinching 27 wickets in 17 matches at an economy of 7.75. With these numbers, he also became the Purple Cap winner for the first time. In the tournament, he also grabbed a hat-trick against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

Earlier, while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) from 2014-2021, Chahal delivered a lot of match-winning displays. Talking about his bowling figures for the franchise, he took 139 wickets in 113 games at an economy of 7.58. 

In the last few years, he has been a consistent performer in the tournament which makes him an ideal bowler to lead the spin attack of any IPL team. So far, the leggie’s journey has been incredible as he has hunted 166 scalps in 131 matches at an economy of 7.61.
