Batting

Shubman Gill, Kane Williamson and Mathew Wade make up the top 3. Shubman Gill has been in scintillating form this year scoring hundreds in all 3 formats. Williamson had a tough time last year but scored a fine century against England last week. Hardik Pandya and David Miller will come in at 4 and 5. Gujarat Titans will be depending on them to provide the firepower in the innings given their batting abilities. Vijay Shankar, Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan are good options to have late on the innings.

All-Rounders

One of the reasons for their success last season was the presence of world class all-rounders. They have the likes of captain Hardik Pandya, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Odean Smith and Rashid Khan in their ranks. Odean Smith is a recent addition to the team. GT would be hoping that they these all-rounders deliver the same results they did last year.

Bowling

The Gujarat Titans’ bowling attack is full of quality and experience. The many options they have will allow them to select the best one based on the conditions and the opposition. Mohammed Shami, Alzarri Joseph and Shivam Mavi would be their preferred pace options. They also have Odean Smith, Vijay Shankar to call upon after releasing Lockie Ferguson before the IPL auctions. Hardik Panyda hasn’t bowled much this year due to his back injury but will need to bowl some crucial overs. Rashid Khan will again lead the spin attack for Gujarat Titans this year. Rahul Tewatia, Jayant Yadav and Sai Kishore are also some options GT could try.

Gujarat Titans Strength

The reigning champions seems to have all bases covered. The team, led by the charismatic Hardik Pandya, boasts great players in each of the three areas of the game. The Gujarat Titans’ batting lineup is their strongest point. They have well-known names in that field. They have Shubman Gill, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, and Abhinav Manohar in addition to Hardik Pandya. They also have Mathew Wade, Dave Miller, and Kane Williamson at their disposal. They also of in-depth quality when it comes to their all-rounders. The additions of Mohit Sharma, Joshua Little, and Shivam Mavi strengthened a bowling arsenal that already included stars like Mohammed Shami, Alzarri Joseph, Yash Dayal, and Rashid Khan.

Gujarat Titans Weakness

For GT, the wicketkeeping division can be of concern. Despite having Wriddhiman Saha and Mathew Wade available, they are both out of shape. Pandya and Miller, on the other hand, look to have lost their zeal for the willow this year. As he faced batsmen from all over the world, Rashid, who is considered as the best bowler in the shorter format, seemed to have a lot of trouble finding his rythm. They lack experienced spinners other than Rashid Khan, which could be troublesome on India’s turning surfaces.
