GT All Captains List: How Many Players Have Captained Gujarat Titans In IPL History

In August 2021, Gujarat Titans was introduced when the Indian Premier League’s Governing Council issued an invitation to tender for two new sides. The newest addition to the IPL stunned everyone by becoming the Champions in its very first season in IPL 2022 defeating Rajasthan Royals in the finals and then following it up with playing in another final in IPL 2023. Today, in this article, we will find out about Gujarat Titans (GT) All Captains List From 2022 To 2024 who they have had previously and how they fared. 

Hardik Pandya: (2022-2023)

Having left Mumbai Indians and bought by Gujarat Titans in the mega-auction, Hardik Pandya had doubters to prove wrong. And what a way to do it by leading his troops brilliantly and contributing with the bat as well. Hardik Pandya has the best ever winning percentage in the IPL among Captains who’ve led their team in 30 or more occasions with an astonishing figures of 70.96% having lost just 9 games in the 31 he’s captained in.

What’s even more admiring is that Hardik Pandya could’ve won the franchise its second IPL trophy within the span of just two years from founding if not for Ravindra Jadeja’s heroics for CSK in the last 2 balls of the finals in 2023. But the honeymoon period between Hardik and Gujarat ended somewhat abruptly, as such for the Gujarat supporters as well when Hardik Pandya chose to go back to Mumbai ahead of the IPL 2024 as he was traded by Mumbai Indians to become their new captain in the IPL 2024.
