On Sunday, BCCI secretary Jay Shah tweeted that the IPL 2022 final, which took place earlier this year, set a Guinness World Record for the highest crowd in a T20 contest. "When 101,566 people witnessed the historic @IPL final at @GCAMotera's majestic Narendra Modi Stadium on May 29, 2022, we received the Guinness World Record for the greatest crowd at a T20 match.

A determined Gujarat Titans, captained by all-rounder Hardik Pandya, made their inaugural IPL season an unforgettable one by claiming the trophy at their home stadium in a seven-wicket win over Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals in the final, which was contested at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. "Everyone should be proud of India for setting a Guinness World Record. This one is dedicated to all of our fans for their unrivalled passion and steadfast support. Congrats to @GCAMotera and @IPL! "the BCCI tweeted.
Gujarat capped off a season in which they exceeded everyone's pre-tournament expectations to become champions in their debut season of the competition by completing a chase of 131 with 11 balls remaining and defeating Rajasthan for the third time in IPL 2022 after losing the toss. Pandya led the Gujarat Titans from the start with an all-round performance that included figures of 3/17 in four overs with the ball and 34 off 30 balls with the bat, earning him the Player of the Match award in the final.
