Big news is coming out about the defending champion Gujarat Titans team. The team’s fast bowler Yash Dayal’s health has deteriorated. Captain Hardik Pandya himself has disclosed this. Hardik Pandya has said that Yash might not be able to play the remaining matches of the IPL 2023 season. In fact, Yash played his last match of the season on April 9 against Kolkata Knight Riders. In this match, Rinku Singh hit his bowling hard and hit 5 sixes in 5 balls. So Gujarat had to lose this match by 3 wickets.
In the last over against Kolkata, captain Hardik Pandya entrusted Yash Dayal with the responsibility of defending 29 runs. However, Rinku Singh gave Kolkata Knight Riders a historic victory by raining sixes. After this, in the next match, Yash Dayal was dropped from the playing eleven and Mohit Sharma was given a chance.
Now Hardik Pandya has given great information about Yash Dayal’s health. Pandya has said that the fast bowler will not be able to join the playing XI for the remaining matches of the season due to ill health. Speaking to the media, Hardik said, “I cannot confirm this. After that match he fell ill and lost 7-8 kg. During that time he had a viral infection. Also, due to the pressure he has faced, he is in no condition to field at the moment. At the end of the day someone gains and someone loses. It will be a long time before we see him back on the field.”
We hailed Rinku Singh for his sixes but the other side of the story is this youngster, Yash Dayal.
He’s not keeping well and lost 8-9kgs weight since that day. Praying for your comeback man. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/YCCmZD2Ujk

Mohit Sharma, who replaced Yash Dayal in the playing eleven, has been bowling brilliantly. He has taken 6 wickets in 4 matches at an economy rate of 6.15. 2 wickets costing 17 runs out of this is his best bowling. Apart from bowling profitably, Mohit is also taking wickets in the last over.
