Gujarat Titans players make waves ahead of IPL, big jump in ICC rankings

IPL 2024 Gujarat Titans: IPL will start in few hours. The first match of the Indian Premier League will take place on March 22nd. The fans are preparing themselves. Meanwhile, a player from the Gujarat Titans team led by Shubman Gill has already created a stir ahead of the IPL. After his injury, he returned to international cricket and performed so brilliantly that he made a big jump in the ICC rankings. We are talking about Rashid Khan from Afghanistan. Let us tell you what he did.

This time Shubman Gill is the captain of Gujarat

In this IPL, all eyes will be on Gujarat Titans. This is because the team has played only two IPL seasons so far and became champions once while the team finished runners-up the second time. This means that the team has performed great every time. But then the command of the team was in the hands of Hardik Pandya. But now Hardik has left Gujarat and returned to Mumbai and became captain. Meanwhile, GT has announced that Shubman Gill will be the team’s new captain. While Rashid Khan continues to remain as the vice-captain of the team.

Rashid returns to international cricket after injury

Rashid Khan suffered a back injury after the ODI World Cup and subsequently had to undergo a surgery. That’s why he stayed away from cricket for a long time. But he made a comeback in the series against Ireland and performed brilliantly thereafter. In the first game of the three-match T20 series, he took three wickets for 19 runs, while in the second game he sent four players to the pavilion for just 14 runs. After that, he took one wicket for 12 runs in the last game.
