Gujarat Titans, who won their ninth game in the Indian Premier League against Lucknow Super Giants on May 10, have now become the third team along with Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings in terms of most wins after first 12 games.
Gujarat Titans have had a magical start to the IPL 2022 playoffs, despite the fact that they were not given much of a hope by the criticism following the mega auction in February.
With two league games remaining, the Hardik Pandya-led Titans qualified by smashing the Lucknow Super Giants by 62 runs in one of the most overpowering performances this season despite defending a par total.
The Ahmedabad franchise was ecstatic to be the first franchise to actually enter the Playoffs with 18 points from 12 games, winning 75 percent of them. Titans’ having a ‘Q’ against their name in the points table has never been in doubt, given their consistency in finishing in the top four since the league began. But no one would have predicted them doing so with only 12 games and two league games remained.
Regardless of the lack of big figures, the batting held up under pressure, and the bowling has been brilliant in many aspects for the first squad to reach the IPL playoffs.
