Gujarat Titans (GT) on Sunday (May 29) created history as they won the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in their maiden season.
The Hardik Pandya-led side crushed Rajasthan Royals (RR) by seven wickets in the final to lift the coveted title at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
While GT topped the league stage with 10 wins from 14 games, they saved their best performance for the final.
Asked to bowl first, the Titans restricted RR to a below-par 130/9 on the back of captain Hardik’s outstanding bowling figures of 3 for 17 in his four overs. Rashid Khan (1-18) and Sai Kishore (2-20) also produced impressive bowling performances in the big game.
In reply, GT got over the line with 11 balls to spare. Opener Shubman Gill top scored with 45* while Hardik and David Miller contributed 34 and 32* respectively.
Hardik Pandya and company were pretty thrilled and proud after the IPL title win. They took to micro-blogging site Twitter to rejoice their success.
