Coming to Gujarat Titans, the new franchise had named Hardik Pandya, who will also lead the side, Rashid Khan and Shubman Gill as their three draft picks. They had a decent auction as they bought a combination of young and experienced players.

The Hardik Pandya-led side acquired English opener Jason Roy but he pulled himself out of the tournament due to bio-bubble fatigue. As a result of which, the Ahmedabad based franchise named wicketkeeper Rahmanullah Gurbaz as a replacement.
