Gujarat needed Lockie’s replacement as well as a good-quality Indian or overseas opener. They also needed another spinner as Rashid Khan‘s backup and an Indian all-rounder as Hardik Pandya‘s backup. They lack an experienced batsman in the middle order and hence that position also needed to be filled.
