Gujarat's best appearance in a Ranji Trophy came in the season of 1950/1951, where it was facing Holkar in the Ranji Tropy Final. Holkar won the high-scoring match by 189 runs, the match featured a double century by Holkar's Chandu Sarwate and a fighting 152 by Gujarati off-spinner Jasu Patel (who averaged 12.78 in 87 innings).[1]

In 2007/2008, Gujarat won their maiden Ranji Trophy Plate League title by defeating Railways.[2] Gujarat were in an lose win situation and six and four and out they lost.

In the year 2010/11, Gujarat made a wonderful start to the Ranji Season. They went for a draw against Bengal and later on made an outright win against a strong Delhi Team but lost two consecutive matches against Madhya Pradesh and Baroda which ended their hope of entering Quarter Final Stage.

They drew a high scoring match against Tamil Nadu, which featured the comeback of Parthiv Patel (as he was busy in national duty) but lost the match against Haryana which forced them to go back at the Plate League.

Gujarat won the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy in 2012/13 defeating Punjab in the final by four wickets with 13 deliveries to spare.
