IPL 2023: Gujarat Titans team performed brilliantly in IPL 2023. After the league stage, his team finished at the first position in the points table. The Gujarat team also made its place in the playoffs for the second consecutive season. This year was also good for Gujarat. His team is in the playoffs and had to face defeat at the hands of Chennai Super Kings in the first qualifier. Though they still have a chance to make it to the finals, there was one player in their team who could not get a chance to play a single match this season. Gujarat Titans team has given Rs 6 crore to this player.

Who is that player?

A brilliant player has been completely overlooked by the Gujarat Titans team. We are talking about Shivam Mavi. Gujarat Titans included him in their squad this year. Mavi was included in this year's auction at a base price of 40 lakhs. After which he was finally bought for Rs 6 crore. When Gujarat Titans had invested so much money on Mavi, it seemed that GT would give him a lot of opportunities this year, but it did not happen. The Gujarat team played Mohti Sharma for 50 lakhs in many matches throughout the season, but Mavi could not get a chance for a single match.

KKR had released

Before the auction for IPL 2023, the KKR team had released Shivam Mavi. In the year 2022 itself, the KKR team included him in their squad for Rs 7.25 crore. Even after being bought for this money, Shivam Mavi could not do anything special for the KKR team. He spent runs in 6 matches that season with an economy of 10.32. Seeing his poor performance, KKR dropped him from the squad. After which GT made a bet on him, but could not give him a chance.
