By default, Google Sheet will use the selected group of data to generate a column chart.

Step 3 – Customize your graph

Now, you can customize the double bar graph to your preference. We will change the chart title to ‘Score of the Teams’ for a better representation of the gauge chart.

Also, to emphasize the chart title, we will change the text color to black, bold it, and also align it to the center.
