Indian T20 League: Gujarat Team

Led by the ex-Mumbai player Hardik Pandya, Gujarat is one of the two newest teams in the Indian T20 League this season. Ashish Nehra is the head coach of the team, while Gary Kirsten is the batting coach and mentor. Ashish Kapoor is the spin-bowling coach.

Gujarat have drafted Shubman Gill and Afghanistan champions leg-spinner Rashid Khan. The team has picked up some world-class batters in the mega auction like Jason Roy, David Miller and Matthew Wade. Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar and Dominic Drakes have been roped in as the all-rounders and finishers with the bat, while Mohd. Shami is the pace spearhead for the team alongside Lockie Ferguson and Alzarri Joseph.

How will the Gujarat team perform in their first season? Only time will tell. For now, let’s take a closer look at the team, its history and the current player performances in the Indian T20 League.

Team Gujarat Origin

The Gujarat team was founded in 2021 and will play its home matches at the newly-revamped Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad during the 2022 edition.

Team Gujarat Owners: Indian T20 League

CVC Capital Partners, a British private equity and investment advisory firm, won the rights to operate the Ahmedabad based franchise with a bid of over ₹ 5,625 Cr.

Hardik Pandya: Gujarat Team Captain

Hardik Pandya left his mark on the Indian T20 League in his first season with the Mumbai team in 2015, with a thrilling 31-ball 61* to defeat Kolkata. He played his part in Mumbai’s 4 title wins, with his 402 runs and 14 wickets in 2019 being especially noteworthy.

Injuries prevented him from bowling in the 2020 and 2021 seasons, and after a poor season with the bat in 2021, Mumbai opted not to retain him before the mega auction. After investing ₹15 crores on him and appointing him as the captain, Gujarat will hope to see more of the old Pandya in 2022.
