GT have suffered a significant setback as their star fast bowler, Mohammed Shami, has been ruled out of IPL 2024.

Despite carrying the injury throughout the World Cup, he managed to play until the final match. However, he now requires rest to fully recover.

Shami claimed the purple cap last year after taking 28 wickets in 17 matches, boasting an impressive average of 18.61.

Here are 5 players who can replace Mohammed Shami in the Gujarat Titans squad for IPL 2024

1. Varun Aaron

Aaron has played in 52 IPL matches, claiming 44 wickets.

2. Kamlesh Nagarkoti

Nagarkoti got an IPL contract with KKR and has played 12 games for them and Delhi Capitals. 

3. Ishan Porel

Ishan remained unsold at the IPL 2024 auction. However, Shami's exclusion may provide an opportunity for him to play. 

4. Chintan Gaja

As the Titans prepare to face the challenges of the upcoming IPL season, Gaja aims to step into the significant role left by Shami 

5. Mohammad Kaif

Mohammad Kaif, the younger brother of Shami, can prove to be a valuable addition to the Titans' lineup as a replacement.
