Gujarat Titans Playing Squad in IPL

Gujarat Titans, a T20 franchise that is based in Gujarat, plays in the IPL. This team was founded in 2021 and plays its home matches at Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Motera. Their journey has been flawless so far as they won their first-ever season. This team was the runner-up of the second season. This franchise is owned by CVC Capital Partners who won the bid with US$700 million. The unique thing about this franchise is that they have participated in only two IPL seasons so far. They have topped the group stage in both of them. This shows their utter dominance over the other competing teams.
