Cool-headed captaincy from Hardik Pandya


Hardik Pandya emerged as one of the best cool-headed captains this season. Hardik too became a backbone to the team at the number 4 batting position as he curbed his natural instinct of going hard and constructed his inning in a way that every other batter could bat around him.

Finishers rescued Titans on most occasions


Rahul Tewatia and David Miller rescued their team during multiple close encounters in the league stages. Tewatia's two back-to-back sixes of Odean Smith easily define the Titans' never die approach. Rashid Khan was another player who had some extraordinary performances in finishing the game with the bat.

Mohammed Shami along with Lockie Ferguson 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 new and old balls. Rashid Khan also justified his price tag and picked wickets and also kept the scoring rate in check.
