Wriddhiman Saha is likely to open the innings with Shubman Gill. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson will come to bat at number three for the Gujarat Titans. They have options like B Sai Sudarshan who was very impressive in the previous season, KS Bharat, and Vijay Shankar who could play a vital role in the middle order this season.
