Gujarat Titans (GT) have had a magical debut season in the Indian Premier League (IPL), qualifying for the playoffs for the first time in IPL 2022. GT has won 10 of its 13 games so far, ensuring that they will finish first when the league stages conclude later this week. The Titans, captained by Hardik Pandya, became the first franchise to secure a spot in the playoffs.
GT moved up to 20 points in the IPL 2022 points table with their latest win over CSK, and with one more match remaining, they have secured a top-two finish, having officially advanced to the playoffs, and now have two opportunities to reach the IPL 2022 finals.
The predicted winning combination of GT for the playoffs would be:
Hardik Pandya, 28, has led the Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2022 with a lot of expertise after leaving the Mumbai Indians. Gujarat qualified for the playoffs, and their win over CSK assured them a top-two spot.
The 28-year-old took charge from the start and moved up the batting order to help solidify the middle order. As the team’s sixth bowling option, he also recovered his bowling fitness.
The Gujarat Titans were the only team without a single keeper-bat. They waited till the last few hours of the second day to pay INR 1.9 crore for Wriddhiman Saha, but they also relaxed their budget restraints for Matthew Wade, an overseas possibility (at INR 2.4 Cr).
After 13 league games in Gujarat’s inaugural season, Saha has found a method to perfectly match their batting strategy. Even though Wade began ahead of him, the veteran Indian pro was forced to sit for five games.
Shubman Gill climbed the batters’ ladder with an unbeaten 63 off 49 balls. With 402 runs under his belt, the 22-year-old presently sits in sixth place.
Gill stunned everyone with a gutsy 84 against Delhi Capitals in his second match of the season. In the following match, he put in another excellent performance, scoring 96 against Punjab Kings.
In the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League, David Miller was one of the main run-scorers for Gujarat.
Miller has made a few cameo appearances and scored an unbeaten 94 against the Chennai Super Kings on April 17.
This could be the Australian wicketkeeper-last batter’s chance. Wade has been excellent behind the bat this season, scoring 30, 1, 6, 19, and 20 runs. His 20 runs off 15 balls were essential in helping the Titans overcome the Chennai Super Kings and secure a top-two finish.
Mohammed Shami got off to a great start in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, as he frightened the hitters with a polished showing.
The Gujarat Titans signed the seasoned pacer for Rs 6.5 crore, more than triple his basic price of Rs 2 crore.
Shami caused a lot of issues for the opposition, and it’s no wonder that he did most of his damage in the powerplay overs. Since the start of the 2019 IPL, Shami has consistently been at his best inside the first six overs, proving to be the match-winner for his team.
Shami has bowled the fourth-most dot balls in the lucrative IPL this year, with a dot ball percentage of 42.68. Shami has 18 wickets in 13 games in the ongoing season.
Gujarat Titans, a newly constituted team, bought the 23-year-old spinner, Rashid Khan for INR 15 crore before the auction.
Since then, the spinner has appeared in every game for the team, taking 16 wickets in 13 matches. He also made his IPL leadership debut against Chennai Super Kings in Titans’ previous game of the season.where his 21-ball 40 steered the side to an incredible three-wicket win.
Titans’ bowler Lockie Ferguson has set the speed gun on fire this season. He is placed second on the IPL 2022 chart of fastest deliveries bowled. The Kiwi pacer set the record with a pace of 153.9 km/h against the Chennai Super Kings. Lockie has grabbed twelve wickets in 11 matches this season, with an average of 32.00 and an economy rate of 8.93.
Gujarat’s Yash Dayal is a young Indian fast bowler who is gradually but surely asserting himself as a key component of the table-pace topper’s match.
It’s incredible for a young fast bowler to take nine wickets in his first six games in the IPL, especially in his maiden season.
Yash has conceded 197 runs and taken 9 wickets for the franchise with an average of 21.88 and a 9.38 economy rate in six innings.
The league’s best bowler, Alzarri Joseph of the West Indies, has the best bowling stats.
With an average of 33.85 and an economy rate of 8.46, Alzarri has conceded 271 runs and taken seven wickets for the Titans in eight innings.
Tewatia may not have contributed much as a leg-spinner, but his progress as a late-order finisher in T20 cricket is undeniable.
In IPL 2022, Tewatia has 215 runs in eleven innings, with a top of 43 not out, an average of 35.83, and a telling strike rate of 149.30. For a player who has always been seen as a minor player, he has performed admirably in each of these matches, despite having very little left to play with.
