New Delhi: This is the thrill of T20 cricket. Only the one who plays big innings cannot become a star here. The match winner is also the one who plays short but effective innings. And David Miller is in the same role inside IPL 2023. That’s why even after not scoring a half-century in the 10 innings he has played till now, he has become an important weapon for Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya.
This happened with David Miller in IPL 2016 as well. There he did not score any half-century for 8 innings. However, a lot has changed for the David Millers of 2016 and 2023. Now he is a part of a team that has exploded in IPL with its debut.

Miller did not score a half-century in 10 innings
By the way, even after playing 10 innings in IPL 2023, one of the reasons for David Miller not scoring a half-century is his batting order. He bats at number 5 for Gujarat Titans. This is the position where not many balls are available to play. But, during this, he definitely plays fast-paced and effective innings for the team.
Scored 242 runs in 11 matches, unbeaten 5 times
David Miller faced 160 balls and scored 242 runs in 10 innings of 11 matches played in IPL 2023 for Gujarat Titans. During this, his strike rate was 151.25, which is the third best strike rate among Gujarat Titans batsmen. The great thing is that he has remained unbeaten 5 times in these 10 innings and his best score is 46 runs.
Talking about the performance and position of Gujarat Titans in IPL 2023, they are the best as compared to the other 9 teams. This team is currently at the top of the points table and if it defeats Sunrisers Hyderabad, it will become the first team to reach the playoffs. This team has so far played its 12 matches in IPL 2023, in which it has 16 points.
On the other hand, if Sunrisers Hyderabad lose to Gujarat, then they will be the second team after Delhi Capitals to be out of IPL 2023.
