A balanced playing XI
This is the debut season for the teams as far as the teams are still finding their best playing XI, Gujarat management might have found their best combination. Despite the fact that Gujarat has one of the best squads in this season with their star player and captain Hardik Pandya, the management might get the perfect playing XI while fulfilling all the departments.
GT has played with the best combination of young and experienced players which as a result helped GT to win the match.
2. Taken early wickets in the match
As far as Gujarat star bowler Md Shami is back in form and taking down the top order of LSG in the early overs makes the GT take a step ahead in the match. The perfect plan to take down an opponent is by taking early wickets in powerplay and GT has done this by taking the early wickets in the face of Rahul, De Kock, and Manish Pandey which help the GT to restrict Lucknow at a low score of 158.
3. A balanced middle order
The backbone of a team’s batting lineup is its middle order and Gujarat has the players which make the middle order looks balanced and perfect. Titans have Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, David Miller, and Rahul Tewatia who are not only capable to save the team after some early wickets but they can finish the game for the team and they have shown their abilities in many IPL matches.
4. A good captaincy

Hardik Pandya who has been appointed as the captain of Gujarat Titans for this IPL season has started his captaincy career on a good note. Pandya not only sticks to a perfect game plan but also made changes according to the game which as a result made GT stand on the winning side. Despite being the fact that Hardik has never been a captain of a team, it will be interesting to see his captaincy skills in this 2022 IPL season.
5. Players are in the form
As IPL has just started it will be early to say that Gujarat Titans are on the right track but after today’s match, LSG the players of Gujarat are looking in a form which will be a positive sign for the Gujrat franchise in this season. The GT fan base has already started growing and after this win, they look more excited for the upcoming matches.
