Gujarat Titans Captain

The team bought Hardik Pandya who is originally a talent from the city of Vadodara in Gujarat. They have announced him as the Captain for their new team ahead of the Mega Auction. Hardik has been one of the most valuable players for his previous team, Mumbai Indians and has contributed to their victory in many ways in all three departments, batting, bowling and fielding. This will be the very first that Pandya will be seen leading a team in the IPL. It will be very exciting for his fans to watch him captaining the side.

Hardik is an all-rounder and was bought by the team for 15 crores.

With Pandya’s exceptional finishing skills and skilful expertise in bowling, he shall perform extraordinarily as the skipper. He is also known to be one of the fittest and peaceful fielders in the Indian Cricket Team.

Other Players in Gujarat Titans

The Ahmedabad Franchise was allowed to contract three players from the unretained group. The owners picked Hardik Pandya as their first choice, who they later appointed as the skipper. The other two big names that were announced by the team were Afghanistan Spinner, Rashid Khan and Indian talent, Shubman Gill.

Rashid Khan is one of the biggest names in the game of cricket. His bowling is spectacular and his mastery of the game is just sensational. He has performed exceptionally well for the team of Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL and it was extremely shocking for him to not get opted in the retention. However, it is highly beneficial to have possibly the best foreign spinner in their team for Gujarat Titans. He was bought for an amount of 15 crores by the team for the upcoming edition.
