  • Shahrukh Khan (INR 7.4 crore): The dynamic finisher further strengthens the team’s batting prowess.
  • Umesh Yadav (INR 5.8 crore): Pace reinforcement for Mohammed Shami, providing depth to the fast-bowling department.
  • Robin Minz (INR 3.6 crore), Sushant Mishra (INR 2.2 crore), Kartik Tyagi (INR 60 lakh), Azmatullah Omarzai (INR 50 lakh): Young talents who add depth and variety to the squad.

Areas of concern for Gujarat Titans:

While the Titans have made strategic wins, there are areas they missed out on, notably the absence of a seasoned Indian wicketkeeping backup to Wriddhiman Saha. This gap might pose challenges in accommodating Kane Williamson in the playing XI. Despite a spirited attempt with a bid of INR 24.50 crore, the Titans couldn’t secure Mitchell Starc.
