During the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League, Tewatia played many crucial cameos for Gujarat Titans however none of them was more special than his heroics against Punjab Kings. He had smashed PBKS pacer, Odean Smith, for two consecutive sixes when 12 runs were required off 2 balls to take Gujarat to a six-wicket victory.

In IPL 2022, he scored 217 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 147.62. His heroics in IPL 2022 gained him praises from all-around, however, the all-rounder was left disappointed when the BCCI announced the squad for the 2-match T20I series against Ireland.
