Former Indian cricketer Ajay Jadeja said Gujarat Titans is a team that doesn’t follow any set patterns.

The IPL debutants led by all-rounder Hardik Pandya are leading the charts with eight wins from nine games.

Skipper Hardik Pandya is leading from the front with 308 runs in eight matches. Pace bowler Mohammed Shami has the most wickets for the team – 14 scalps in nine matches at an average of 20.

Gujarat Titans have different match-winners in each game like Rahul Tewatia smashing two sixes on the last two deliveries against Odean Smith. Rashid Khan supporting David Miller to pull off a spectacular run chase against Chennai Super Kings.

Rashid also stood tall in the crunch situation when Titans needed 15 runs in four balls against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Afghanistan star clobbered three sixes off Marco Jansen to pull off another heist.

Lockie Ferguson’s 4/28 against Delhi Capitals and Mohammed Shami’s incredible 3/25 in their opening game against LSG were some exceptional performances.

Gujarat Titans snatched wins in games where defeat seemed imminent: Ajay Jadeja

Jadeja said any player in Gujarat Titans has the potential to change the course of the match from a losing position.

Gujarat Titans play better than you expect or predict. They snatched wins in two to three games where defeat seemed imminent. Their last victory (over RCB) was the most convincing one. They were in cruise control. Shubman Gill hasn’t scored runs in a while. Hardik Pandya did not score in the last game. In spite of that, they won with calmness,” Jadeja told Cricbuzz.

“GT have made as many changes as the other sides, most of them forced ones. However, it did not impact them because this is not a team that plans and plays as per a set pattern. Whichever player comes in is expected to do what is best for the team and what he is capable of. This is the big difference between GT and other sides,” he added.

Gujarat Titans will lock horns with Punjab Kings on Tuesday at the Dr DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.
