- Virat Kohli- the leading run scorer in IPL history joined Chris Gayle with six IPL centuries when he hit 100 runs from 63 balls in the last game.

RCB Possible Impact Player Substitutes
Dinesh Karthik, Vyshak Vijaykumar, Himanshu Sharma, Suyash Prabhudessai, Kedar Jadhav
The experienced Dinesh Karthik has failed to deliver with the bat this season but he is still a talented finisher and could be brought into the team if required for that role. Vijaykumar has taken four wickets from his last two games.

Sri Lankan Dasun Shanaka made his Gujarat Titans debut in the last game as Sai Sudharsan also came into the team for the clash with Sunrisers Hyderabad. Although there will be a temptation to rest players, Gujarat Titans have benefited from playing many of the same players throughout the competition.

- Shubman Gill- it has been a brilliant 2023 at international level and in the IPL for the opening batter. He has scores of 94 and 101 in his last three innings.
