The Ahmedabad IPL team is named Gujarat Titans. Gujarat Titans are assigned the Narendra Modi Stadium as their home ground, which is the world’s largest cricket stadium. The owner of the Ahmedabad IPL team is CVC Capital Partners.

The Gujarat IPL team announced Hardik Pandya as the captain who was released by Mumbai Indians in the IPL Mega auction. The former Indian bowler Ashish Nehra is announced as the head coach of the team.

On the other hand, India’s 2011 ODI World Cup-winning coach Gary Kirsten has been appointed as
the batting coach and mentor of the team.

History Of The Ahmedabad IPL Team Gujarat Titans

The IPL’s Governing Council has invited two additional teams to compete in the league. Following that, 22 firms expressed interest in it. However, because of the high base price, only six serious bidders were able to continue.

By the way, with a $750 million bid, Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) Partners won the ownership of the franchise. CVC Partners, the Ahmedabad IPL team 2024 owner, is a British private equity company.

The auction was held in October 2024 in Dubai where the team picked Hardik Pandya from releasing Mumbai. The management of the team drafted him as Ahmedabad IPL team 2024 captain in the auction.

One of the key factors behind the Gujarat Titans' success is their balanced squad. Openers Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha provide a solid foundation at the top, while the middle order boasts experienced players like Vijay Shankar and David Miller. The team also has a potent bowling attack featuring veterans like Rashid Khan, Mohammad Shami (not available in IPL 2024), and Umesh Yadav, along with promising youngsters like R. Sai Kishore.

Their maiden IPL season in 2022 was a fairytale. Under the leadership of Hardik Pandya, who has since returned to his former team, Mumbai Indians, the Titans displayed remarkable consistency. Their well-rounded performance throughout the tournament was a testament to their strong team spirit and effective strategies.

The Titans play their home matches at the magnificent Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad. This iconic stadium, with its massive capacity and world-class facilities, provides a thrilling atmosphere for both players and spectators.

The Background Of Mega Auction In Tata IPL 2024

However, Gujarat Titans have picked their first three players before the mega auction. In the mega auction, they had to form the entire team by purchasing the rest of the players.

As they spent Rs 38 crore on the first-drafted players, the team had remained Rs 52 crore for the entire team selection. Because BCCI bounded Rs 90 for every team to spend for the players.

As each team has to build a team with 25 players, Gujarat Titans had 22 remaining slots to pick the rest of the players. Among the entire selection, each team can pick 7 overseas players.
