How The World Reacted As GT Qualify For IPL Playoffs In Debut Season

Playing their debut season in the Indian Premier League, Gujarat Titans on Tuesday became the first team to qualify for the playoffs after registering their ninth win of the campaign. GT pulled off a season-double over fellow IPL debutants Lucknow Super Giants, registering a 62 -run victory at the MCA Stadium in Pune. As GT qualified for the next phase of the tournament, the cricketing fraternity took to Twitter and lauded the Hardik Pandya-led side on what has been an excellent debut season in IPL.

Here’s how Twitter:

“Saru Che !!! @Gujaratitans congratulations on qualifying in your first year of #IPL2022 well done guys ! Tough wicket to bat on but very well played @ShubmanGill showing great signs of maturity. Bowlers winning the game with some top spells by @MdShami11 and @rashidkhan_19,” former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh tweeted.

Former India batter Wasim Jaffer shared a hilarious meme from a famous Indian web series, summing up GT’s debut season.

“Gujarat Titans. Take a bow! I must admit that I didn’t see them qualifying…couldn’t be happier to be proved wrong. Upwards and onwards. Won’t be surprised if both newcomers meet again on the 29th. But then…what do I know,” former India batter Aakash Chopra tweeted.
