IPL 2024 GT Squad Updated Players List – Gujarat Titans

Shubman Gill Captain for Gujarat Titans as we look at the IPL 2024 GT squad and the updated new players list.

Probably the team that created the maximum noise ahead of the Auction, the Gujarat Titans were in the news, and the reason was Hardik Pandya. In an unexpected scene of, Gujarat Titans’ Captain Hardik Pandya was traded to Mumbai Indians for an undisclosed transfer amount. The reasons are still unknown as to why Hardik would leave a team like Gujarat, where he was the Captain, and competed two successful seasons. 

Nevertheless, with Hardik not there, Shubman Gill was announced as the Captain of the IPL 2024 GT squad. With Shubman at the helm, GT are surely looking at him to lead them for solid 8-10 seasons; unless of course Shubman Gill too tries to make a shock exit. However, focusing on the current year, it is a great opportunity for Shubman, who may as well assume Team India’s captaincy in the near future.

Overall, ahead of the Auction, GT had retained 17 players. They were looking for a replacement for Hardik Pandya in the Auction, but the best like-for-like replacement they got was Azmatullah Omerzai. In addition to Omerzai, GT added 7 more players in the squad thus completing the squad of 25. So, with the official players list in front of us, let’s look at the IPL 2024 GT squad list post the Auction.
