Gujarat Titans’ journey to the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 final has unarguably been a shock to a large number. The side wasn’t considered as a part of the top picks by numerous experts after the mega auction however they’ve genuinely proceeded as a unit to get this far in the competition.

For most sides, there are a couple of variables that normally help the team out. For Gujarat, in any case, it’s been a combination of various such factors.

Rahul Tewatia, one of the stars of the franchise this season, talked exclusively to Times Now over Gujarat’s excursion to the final, featuring how clicking as a unit has helped the group out.

“Our team is not dependent on one player but the entire team performs and that’s what sets us apart. The team atmosphere is very relaxed and chilled and that’s what has helped us perform like this” he said.

Gujarat Titans Breeze Past Rajasthan Royals And Qualify For Finals

Rajasthan Royals, for the second time this season, were at Gujarat’s receiving end. It started with Rashid Khan stopping the flow of  Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson. That duo might have taken the game away, yet neither one of the batsmen had the answer to Khan’s googlies. It permitted the Titans to pull back the score as the pitch and batting conditions were looking sufficient for 200 or more.

Maybe fielding was the differentiator between the two sides, with Rajasthan steering the results in support of themselves. However, it didn’t earn sufficient benefit in the end, notwithstanding Gill’s run-out. Never did Gujarat’s batsmen look harried out in the center. The Pandya-Miller blend ensured they were in front of the asking rate consistently, and thusly, the Royals shriveled under tension.

It was found in the uncommon event that both R Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal went wicket-less. The pair have shared 38 wickets this season yet they were not permitted to add to the count. Gill obliterated Ashwin, who was making a respectable attempt to have an effect.

To no one’s surprise, Rajasthan kept Chahal down for the last four overs. However, Miller went after him and failed that strategy. From that point, Obed McCoy and Prasidh Krishna were just not sufficient at the demise.

It was a quintessential Gujarat win, loaded with control and experience, a smidgen of nerve, and a dash of recklessness. It was so crude, yet determined simultaneously. This disposition has taken care of umpteen times this IPL season after nobody allowed them an opportunity back in February.
