A game that had both possible outcomes. The Titans won the toss and got to bat first thanks to it. Although all of the GT batters got off to respectable starts, Sai Suddharsan and Vijay Shankar from Tamil Nadu caused the most harm.

However, KKR’s hopes were sustained by a partnership of 100(55) between Impact Player Venkatesh Iyer and Skipper Nitish Rana. Alzarri Joseph selected both of the set batters in quick succession, shifting the momentum in GT’s favour.Even though Rashid Khan, the team’s captain, was not having the greatest of days, he unexpectedly returned and scored the first hat trick of IPL 2023, eliminating any chance the visitors had of winning.
