Gujarat Titans: The defending champions participated proactively in the recently concluded IPL 2023 auctions and bought seven players from the draft and fulfilled all of their player slots. The biggest buy was Shivam Mavi for the price of 6 Crore and Joshua Little for the price of 4.4 Crore.

However, the purchase of the former Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson made headlines as he was bought for a nominal price of 2 crores. The franchise has made it very clear that the New Zealand limited-over skipper will have confirmed space in their starting XI. You can find the best bookmakers in India to bet on these mathces.

Gujarat Titans had a fairy tale tournament in their debut season as they lifted the Indian Premier League trophy in 2022. Not only that, skipper Hardik Pandya made a brilliant comeback to international cricket because of his outstanding performance in the tournament.

He displayed an allrounder performance as he picked up wickets and scored runs in almost every game of the tournament in 2022. Gujarat Titans will be again in the spotlight with the quality of players they have in the squad.
