Gujarat Titans, which will be captained by Hardik Pandya, bought Shubman Gill in the retentions before the mega auction. In the auction, they were able to acquire England opener Jason Roy for his base price, which is considered to be a steal buy. While it was expected that Jason Roy would partner Shubman Gill at the top of the order for the new franchise, Jason Roy’s decision to opt out of the tournament has come as a blow. Roy played for Sunrisrs Hyderabad last year.

Roy recently played in the Pakistan Super League and slammed a century just before the auction. Playing just five matches, he was the leading run-getter for his team Quetta Gladiators. The franchise is yet to name a replacement for Roy. However, they have Matthew Wade, who can also open the innings for them.

The tournament is scheduled to kickstart on 26th March and will be played across four venues in Maharashtra namely Wankede Stadium, Barabourne Stadium, DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai and Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. The Maharashtra Government has also announced that 25% of the crowd will be allowed in the stadium which has come as a major relief to the Indian cricket loyalists.
