Hardik 2.0 is the biggest strength of Gujarat
Hardik Pandya has come out as the biggest plus point for Gujarat this time. From bowling in the power play to batting first down, he has played his part of it as per the requirement of the team. Batsmen like David Miller and Rahul Tewatia are handling the responsibility of the middle order very well.
In the initial round, there has been no consistency in the performance of Shubman Gill, who is running in the Orange Cap race. He has the ability to come back by working on his weaknesses. Fast bowlers like Mohammed Shami and Lockie Ferguson are performing well against the top order of any team.
