Hardik Pandya's Gujarat Titans completed a fairytale IPL campaign last year after clinching the trophy in their debut season. The mercurial Indian all-rounder was the talk of the town after his leadership qualities came to the fore in the 2022 edition of the competition.
The newly debuted franchise steamrolled the competition during the league phase last year and were the team to beat heading into the playoffs. The team was expected to stutter in the knockout stages, given their relative inexperience in the competition. However, a blend of youth and experience in the camp did the unthinkable by clinching the title in their maiden season.
The franchise is expected to refrain from making too many changes to the winning squad and will likely retain the core group of players that propelled them to glory last year. Hardik Pandya will likely have the services of young opening batter Shubman Gill, who had a prolific season with the bat last time around. Globetrotting all-rounder Rashid Khan will be at the heart of the Gujrat bowling line-up with the swashbuckling Protean David Miller providing strength to the batting order.
The reigning champions have traded Kiwi speedster Lockie Ferguson and Rahmanullah Gurbaz to KKR and have released Dominic Drakes, Gurkeerat Singh, Jason Roy, and Varun Aaron, leaving the franchise with a purse value of INR 19.25 crore ahead of the IPL Auction next month. They will further bolster their squad in the mini-auction in hopes of defending their title in the next edition of the tournament.
