All-rounder Jayant Yadav has warmed the bench so far with the tried and tested Gujarat Titans squad winning eight of the first nine games. But with two back to back losses, head coach Ashish Nehra and captain Hardik Pandya have been forced to rethink their strategy.

GT Playing XI vs LSG: Why Jayant Yadav can make his GT debut?

  • The most important point to note is that the match will be played in Pune.
  • The MCA Stadium surface has seen spinners getting more purchase.
  • With Rashid Khan the sole wicket-taking spinner, Gujarat may add Jayant Yadav to the mix.
  • Jayant Yadav has an excellent batting record in domestic cricket besides a Test century to his name.
  • With Rashid Khan as the wrist-spin option, Jayant Yadav’s off-spin could be helpful against left-handers like Quinton de Kock and Krunal Pandya.

The other change could be Pradeep Sangwan. The Delhi pacer has been effective in containing runs but hasn’t been an effective wicket-taking option. Yash Dayal’s speed could be a big factor in Pune with seamers getting a little bit of swing. It was evident in the match between LSG vs KKR and CSK vs SRH match.

However, for other positions, Gujarat will keep the same combination with Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill opening while David Miller is likely to get the No 3 spot ahead of Hardik Pandya at No 4.
