Looking at the performance of IPL 2022 so far, Gujarat has won 3 out of 4 matches. His first defeat came against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Pandya has done well for Gujarat with bat and ball. He is returning to the field from the IPL itself after the T20 World Cup held last year. Everyone’s eyes are also on his performance because this year the T20 World Cup is to be held in Australia. For this, Pandya can prove to be the most important link in the team.
Hardik Pandya was unable to bowl due to injury. But in all four matches of the current IPL season, he has bowled 4-4 overs. This is also a relief for Team India.

Dhoni had won 9 matches in the first season
MS Dhoni has been captaining the IPL since 2008. However, before the current season, he has left the command of the team. In the first season, under his captaincy, the team won 9 out of 16 matches. The team was the runner up. CSK won 8 out of 14 matches of the league round. Then in the semi-final, the team defeated Punjab Kings. However, he was defeated by Rajasthan Royals in the final. MS Dhoni scored 414 runs in 16 matches at an average of 41 as a batsman. 2 half-centuries were also scored. The strike rate was 134.
Rohit got the responsibility in the middle season
Rohit Sharma was made the captain of Mumbai Indians in 2013. Captain Ricky Ponting could not perform much in the first 6 matches. After this, Rohit was made the new captain of the team by removing him. The team performed brilliantly under Rohit’s captaincy in the very first season and won the IPL title for the first time by defeating CSK. Rohit had scored 538 runs in 19 matches of the season at an average of 38. Had scored 4 fifties. The strike rate was of 132. He won 8 out of 10 matches of the league round as captain. However, the team lost in Qualifier 1. But then he made a great comeback by winning Qualifier-2 and Final. That is, he won a total of 10 matches as a captain.
