The Gujarat Titans (GT), who will be making their Indian Premier League (IPL) debut during the upcoming season, recently had their official photoshoot. The official social media handles of the franchise shared a video in which Hardik Pandya and his teammates look rather excited about the challenge at hand.
On Monday, GT uploaded a video of the players taking part in the IPL team’s photoshoot session. In the clip, skipper Pandya looks all gung-ho while Rahul Tewatia and Wriddhiman Saha are seen smiling for the camera. The franchise shared the video with the caption:

“He is going to be X factor in Gujarat Titans” - Shubman Gill on Lockie Ferguson
According to opener Shubman Gill, New Zealand pacer Lockie Ferguson can be the Gujarat Titans' X factor in the upcoming IPL season. Both Gill and Ferguson played together for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) last year.
Speaking at a recent media interaction, Gill said about the New Zealand fast bowler:
"Yeah, I think Lockie Ferguson, when we were in Kolkata Knight Riders, he was a huge asset for us and I am sure he is going to be a huge X-factor for us in the Gujarat Titans squad.”
IPL 2022 will get underway on March 26 with a clash between last year’s finalists Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and KKR at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Gujarat will begin their IPL 2022 schedule on March 28 by taking on the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).
