Shubman Gill, the newly appointed skipper for IPL 2024’s Gujarat Titans, expressed excitement and gratitude for leading the team, succeeding after Hardik Pandya’s trade to Mumbai Indians. Reflecting in a heartfelt video posted by GT, Gill shared his journey from a cricket enthusiast to an IPL captain, calling it a childhood dream. He stressed the significance of commitment, discipline, and loyalty in leadership, drawing wisdom from past experiences under seasoned leaders.
“I think it’s gonna take, like, probably till the time we don’t play the first match. It’s a great feeling. I mean, I was about seven or eight years old when you know IPL started happening. Obviously, it’s a dream for any kid who wants to be a cricketer and wants to play the IPL to be able to captain a team. Then to be able to be that kind of binding factor in this team, it feels amazing,” Gill said.

Acknowledging mentors like Kane Williamson, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Shami, and David Miller, Gill credited their expertise in guiding the team.
“I mean, we all know captainship comes, uh, with a lot of things, and commitment is one of them. Discipline is one of them. Hard work is one of them. Loyalty is one of them. And because I think I’ve played under great leaders and I’ve learned a lot from them, I think those learnings that I have had from their experience playing under them is gonna help me a lot in this IPL. We have great leaders in our team, be it Kane or be it Rashid or be it Shami or David, even Wriddhi bhai (Wriddhiman Saha), though I think it’s gonna be, great. And obviously, there are gonna be a lot of learnings along the way, which would be my experience as a captain. And I see a lot of people making great memories,” Gill added.
Gill’s exceptional run-scoring in IPL 2023, topping with 890 runs, earned praise for his maturity and skill. As the new Titans’ captain, his batting proficiency and strategic acumen are expected to drive the team toward ongoing wins in the IPL.
