IPL 2022 Final: Gujarat Titans (GT) captain Hardik Pandya contributed significantly to the team with his bat and ball throughout the season and continued to do so in the final as well.
If anyone has had the most memorable debut in IPL 2022, it is Gujarat Titans. Gujarat, one of the two newest teams in the Indian Premier League, entered the finals directly in their very first season. Well, not only Gujarat, but this season was also the debut for Hardik Pandya. Not his career, but his captaincy debut. Hardik, who was captaining the IPL for the first time, not only led his team in a brilliant manner, but also went ahead himself and set an example with his strong performance. The best example of this was seen in the final itself. In the final (GT vs RR Final) match against Rajasthan Royals in Ahmedabad, Hardik Pandya did something that had happened only once before in IPL history, that too 13 years ago.
