Gujarat Titans beat Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2022 final on Sunday, May 29 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, India. While they have found a lot of match-winners, experienced spinner Rashid Khan believes young spinner Ravi Bishnoi will be a big star for India in the upcoming years as well.
He said, “Bishnoi is a young talent. I’ve talked to him quite a few times. In the upcoming years, he will be a big star for India. If he trusts his skills and continues to back them up, he will definitely be a big bowler for India.”
As far as Gujrat Titans’ title win is concerned, they did exceptionally well throughout the season. They won 10 games and lost only 4 out of 14 games and finished the league stage as the table-toppers as well.
After the win, Rashid Khan said: “We assessed the wicket well, we knew it would be hard to chase down 150. Everyone had to take responsibility, we did well to come back well in the middle overs. He is the only guy whom we didn’t want to bowl to and I’m happy that he’s part of our team (on Shubman Gill), Biggest achievement of your career is to be part of a winning IPL team. You always want to do well in big competitions like this. Winning tournaments like this, you’ll need to put in a lot of hard work and this is certainly a high point of my career.”
Hardik Pandya said: “This is the right example for any team in the world. If you can play as a team and build a good unit with genuine people around, wonders can happen. I and Ashu pa, we like to play proper bowlers. Batters can obviously chip in, but most of the time I have seen in T20 cricket – it’s a batter’s game but bowlers win you games. A lot of times we won the games as well, but we always spoke about what are the things we missed out and how we can get better from here. Everyone chipped in. Count myself lucky winning 5 finals, it’s been exciting. This is going to be a special one. We spoke about creating a legacy. Generation to come, everyone will remember this was the team who started this journey and to win the championship first year is very special.”
