Before the IPL 2023 championship, an ex-Indian bowler predicted that Gill will devour the triumvirate of Dhoni, Kohli, and Rohit

Shubman Gill, the opening batsman for the Gujarat Titans, has been eliminating the top players in IPL 2023 by himself with his match-winning hundreds. Before the playoffs, Gill dealt Virat Kohli another cruel blow at the Chinnaswamy against Royal Challengers Bangalore with his second century of the year. By scoring 129 runs against Mumbai on Friday in Qualifier 2, Gill ruined MI's hopes of winning a sixth IPL championship. The famous MS Dhoni will face Gill as the Gujarat Titans play in the championship game for the second straight year. And a former fast bowler for India is certain that Dhoni would share Kohli and Rohit's destiny.
Gill's year has been in season, to say nothing of the season. When Gill achieved the triple-figure mark against SRH in Ahmedabad, he concluded his quest for a first IPL hundred despite entering the season with hundreds in all three forms, including a double tonne in ODI. The 23-year-old then repeated it against RCB in their last league game and Mumbai in the playoffs to propel GT to the championship game on his own.
Given Gill's current success and the fact that the final will be played in Ahmedabad, where the GT opener has scored more than 500 runs this season, Dhoni is likely to be the next victim, according to Atul Wassan in an interview with ABP News.
Because of the manner Gill is batting, I believe the three of Dhoni, Kohli, and Rohit will get devoured. Mahi seems to be next in line. Even the Gujarat Titans squad has had a strong showing. Suryakumar Yadav kept Mumbai in the match, but Gujarat too has a strong depth of bowlers. They've had an effect despite being a new team. We had seen CSK's intimidating might. Speaking about Gill, he is a player with a solid foundation. Given the money and prestige of the IPL, anybody might get distracted, but Gill has seemed in control,” he remarked.
533 of Gill's 851 runs in the IPL 2023 came at the Narendra Modi Stadium over the course of eight games, including three fifties and two tonnes. It is actually Virat Kohli's 597-run total at Chinnaswamy during his illustrious 2016 season that holds the record for the highest score by a batter in an IPL season (with a home-away format) at a single location.
In the crucial summit match against Chennai Super Kings on Sunday, Gujarat would heavily rely on Gill to have an effect.
