In August 2021, the Indian Premier League’s Governing Council invited bidders to submit proposals for two more teams. There were a total of 22 companies that expressed interest, but only six were serious bidders due to the new teams’ high base price. A group of three businesses or people were allowed to submit a joint offer for each franchise by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. With a bid of 5,625 crores, the British private equity and investment advisory firm CVC Capital Partners was successful in obtaining the franchise for Gujrat Titans. The Gujrat Titans franchise was awarded to CVC Capital Partners in an auction held in Dubai in October 2021.

Gujrat Titans Team Previous Season
The Titans shocked everyone with their efforts, earning their first victory over fellow newcomers Lucknow Super Giants, even though their auction techniques and their selections during their first-ever auction were viewed as weak and the team was written off.
The Titans’ first victory came during their maiden campaign, which saw them go on to win 10 of their last 14 group games and qualify at the top of the standings with 20 points. Then, after defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore in the qualifying round, they triumphed against Rajasthan Royals in the opening qualifier. They would later face Rajasthan Royals in the final.
On a pitch where they were instructed to bowl first, Gujarat won the match by limiting Rajasthan to 130 and completing the chase with 11 balls remaining, with Shubman Gill hitting the game-winning six off the first ball of the decisive 19th over. Hardik Pandya’s bowling statistics of 3/17 and his 34 from 30 balls with a strike rate of 113.33 earned him the title of Player of the Match.
Pandya has received appreciation from detractors for his leadership, bowling, and batting, and many of them concur that he and the management made good use of their players and collaborated to win the competition.

Gujrat Titans History
The Gujarat Titans have decided to keep three players after the mega-auction in 2022. All-arounder Hardik Pandya, bowler Rashid Khan, and batsman Shubman Gill were selected for a combined total of 15 crores, 8 crores, and 15 crores, respectively. As the franchise is only allowed to have a total budget of 90 crores, Gujarat Titans spent 38 crores to choose three players, leaving them with 52 crores until the 2022 big auction.
Seven of the 22 available positions might be filled by players from outside the country. Gujarat Titans have added 18 more fresh players to their roster following the two-day IPL 2022 super auction. Their most costly acquisition totaled 10 crores and was New Zealand fast bowler Lockie Ferguson.
On day 1 of the IPL 2022 super auction, the Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans acquired 7 players for a total of 33.15 crores, including 3 foreign players. The team has leftover funds of 18.85 crores after day 1 of the mega auction for day 2.
