The second innings of the Gujart Titans vs Lucknow Super Giants IPL 2023 fixture presented a hilarious moment where GT wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha was involved in a wardrobe malfunction. After a blistering batting effort, the defending champions posted a massive total of 227 runs.
Saha scored a stunning 81 in 43 balls with 10 fours and four sixes before being dismissed after a brilliant catch by Perak Mankad. But ahead of the second innings, the Titans tried to bring in KS Bharat to replace Saha as the keeper but after the umpires didn't allow this substitution the West Bengal star was rushed back onto the field.
As entered the middle, Saha surprisingly wore his trousers backwards. Reacting to this wardrobe malfunction, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami and Quinton de Kock were caught laughing uproariously. After the first over, GT managed to sub out Saha for KS Bharat.

After this hilarious incident, Gujarat Titans put forth a clinical performance and registered a stunning 56-run. After some early fireworks by Lucknow, the Gujarat bowlers managed to pick up wickets at regular intervals and restricted the visitors to the score of 171.
Reacting to this win, GT captain Hardik Pandya said, "I can't ask anything more from the boys. The way the game changed after that (Rashid's catch), at one point I thought the game was even stevens and that catch was match-changing. We were both driving at 100kph as a team but that catch caused a bump in their chase. I don't think so, my love towards him (Krunal) is very strong, I won't be bragging. It would have been nice if it was a little tighter and we had won, he could have also had some bragging rights."
