In Sunday’s final, played at the gargantuan Narendra Modi Stadium, the Titans beat inaugural IPL winners Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets to cap a dream season.
In doing so, they became the first team, since the Royals themselves in 2008, to win the tournament in their very first season.

After the win, the players partied at the stadium until 3 a.m., and there was another round of celebrations at the team hotel. They went to their rooms at 6 a.m.
All the families joined the players and for some like Shubman Gill, his father was present.
Players and support staff members acknowledged the support from the fans.
The Gujarat Titans players were dressed in dark blue t-shirts and blue jeans.

“This title is going to be special because we talked about creating a legacy. Generations to come will talk about it,” Hardik said after the triumph.
“Everyone will remember that this is the team that started this journey and winning the championship in the first year is very special.”
