Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar believes the IPL 2022 rookies will be successful. Gujarat Titans are doing well in the 15th edition of the tournament because they play a fearless brand of cricket while not worrying too much about the outcome. Gujarat Titans are second in the IPL 2022 points table with eight wins in 11 games, as Hardik Pandya and company are one win away from making the playoffs.
Gavaskar said on ‘Cricket Live’ on Star Sports: “Gujarat is playing with such abandon and without fear (in approach). They are winning because they have no fear of the outside world.”
“Of course, you want to win even when you’re playing in your own backyard, but a loss doesn’t mean the end of the world, and that’s the attitude they’re taking on the field. They are having fun and playing positive cricket.”
On Tuesday, Gujarat Titans will face fellow IPL newcomers Lucknow Super Giants in a rematch.
Harbhajan Singh, a former Indian cricketer, has backed Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans to beat Lucknow and become the first team to qualify for the playoffs.
“Gujarat Titans will win their match against the Lucknow Super Giants and become the first team to qualify. The side led by Hardik Pandya is very strong. Rashid Khan is in excellent form, and coach Ashish Nehra is instilling confidence in his players. This team is extremely difficult to defeat “According to Harbhajan.
Former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden praised the Gujarat Titans for the brand of cricket they are playing in their debut season, as well as the match-winners on their roster.
Hayden stated: “GT bats deep, has confidence, and is stacked with match winners. It’s exciting to watch them because when Rahul Tewatia isn’t performing, it’s a Rashid Khan show, and when Rashid isn’t performing, it’s a Killer-Miller (David Miller) show. This team has several match-winners on their roster, which makes them a dangerous opponent. It’s exciting to watch the way they play cricket.”
Gujarat defeated LSG in the first match of the IPL 2022. But it was the start of the tournament, and as with every year, every team faced a world of possibilities. Now that the league is coming to an end, the Titans and Super Giants will enter the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium as joint table-toppers and almost certain playoff qualifiers.
