Gujarat Titans shocked everyone after they decided to let go of skipper Hardik Pandy to Mumbai Indians on the final day (November 19) of submitting the list of retained and released players for IPL 2024 auction. Notably, Pandya had led the franchise to their maiden IPL title in their debut season. With Pandya gone, GT will need to find a captain figure, either within the team or buy at the auction. 

IPL 2023 runners-up Gujarat Titans (GT) have made a promising start to their IPL history and Hardik Pandya nearly led them to their second consecutive IPL title in the Tata IPL 2023 but faced a setback against CSK in the final.

Despite this, they had an excellent season, winning 10 matches and finishing at the top of the points table. Their effective strategies took them to two finals in their first two seasons, winning once. 

IPL 2024 Players Released

As of the previous season, BCCI allowed franchises to use the "TRADE" option where teams can exchange players between them. The 'IPL Trade Window' allows the franchises to either swap players between themselves or buy players for an all-cash deal.
