Shubman Gill is the new captain of Gujarat

In 2022 IPL, Hardik Pandya won the title with the responsibility of Gujarat Titans. However, Gujarat sold him to Mumbai Indians in a trade before next season’s auction. As a result, there was speculation about who would be the captain of the team.

Finally, the team announced the name of Shubman Gill as the captain. This Indian opener will be seen leading a franchise for the first time in IPL. Gill is very excited about this new responsibility. He thanked the franchisee for putting this responsibility on his shoulders.

Gill said, ‘I am happy and proud to be the captain of Gujarat Titans. Thanks to the franchise for trusting me and leading such a great team. We have had two fantastic seasons and I want to lead the team forward and play our own brand of cricket.’

He started his IPL career for Kolkata Knight Riders in 2018. He was expected to be the next captain of the team. But to everyone’s surprise, the franchise released him before the 2022 IPL.

After that, Gujarat brought him to the team for 7 crore rupees from the auction. Gill scored 483 runs in 16 matches for the team in the first season. Gill was in top form throughout the tournament. The highest runs for the team also came from his bat. Gujarat won their first title with their unbeaten 45 in the final.

Gill became the highest run scorer in 2023 IPL. He had 890 runs in 17 innings. He surprised everyone by scoring three centuries throughout the tournament. However, the team had to finish runners-up in the last edition after losing to Chennai Super Kings.
