Legendary Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar has showered praise on the Gujarat Titans (GT) for their fearless approach in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.
Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans are currently placed second in the IPL 2022 standings and they have 16 points in 11 games. In the 57th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 Gujarat Titans will take on KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on, Tuesday. If they manage to bag a win against LSG they will cement a place in IPL 2022 playoffs.
Speaking on ‘Cricket Live’ on Star Sports, Gavaskar said that the Gujarat Titans are playing with freedom and they are enjoying their game. He elaborated:
“Gujarat are playing with such freedom and they are fearless (in approach). There’s no fear of the world in their game and that’s why they are winning.”
“Of course, you wish to win even when you are playing in your backyard but a loss doesn’t mean that it’s an end to the world, that’s the approach with which they are stepping on the pitch. They are enjoying their game and playing positive cricket.”
Gujarat Titans (GT) are going to win the match against Lucknow Super Giants – Harbhajan Singh
Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has made a prediction that Gujarat Titans will defeat Lucknow Super Giants in today’s clash. He added that the head coach of GT, Ashish Nehra, is giving the team the “right amount of confidence”.
“Gujarat Titans are going to win the match against Lucknow Super Giants and they will become the first team to qualify. The Hardik Pandya-led side is very strong. Rashid Khan is in great form and coach Ashish Nehra is giving them just the right amount of confidence. This team is difficult to beat,” Harbhajan said.
Also, former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden has said that the Gujarat Titans are full of match winners. He added that the brand of cricket, which is being played by GT, is exciting to watch.
“GT bat deep, they’ve got the confidence, and they are full of match winners. It’s exciting to watch them because when there’s not a Rahul Tewatia show, it’s a Rashid Khan show and when Rashid isn’t performing, it’s a Killer-Miller (David Miller) show.
“This team is lined up with several match-winners and that’s what makes them a dangerous side. It’s exciting to watch the brand of cricket they are playing,” he said.
