3 Reasons why Gujrat Titans won the IPL 2022 :
- Pack of match-winning bowlers
Lockie Ferguson along with Mohammed Shami and Alzarri Joseph helped Gujarat put pressure on opposition openers and get rid of them early. Unlike the past seasons, Shami remained consistent with both old and new balls. Rashid Khan again showed his worth in the field and displayed his magical spin bowling all over the grounds.
- Contribution of Ashish Nehra
Ashish Nehra of Delhi has been recognized as a blunt player among his fellow players. This is not a negative comment but has been said to raise the positive image of Nehra. Whether you are senior or junior to Ashish Nehra, he will talk to both of them in the same manner. Clear, straight. His cricketing logic silences even veteran captains and even the biggest of journalists who consider themselves to be highly professional in memorizing cricket figures and facts.
- Cool-headed captaincy from Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya emerged as one of the best captains this season. The way Hardik had played at no.4 for Gujrat Titans was absolutely infuriated. He also contributed with his bowling. And how can we forget about his legendary captaincy for the team, he did everything which his team demanded from him.
