Captain Rashid’s 40-run touch-up along with David Miller’s unbeaten 94* helped Gujarat Titans win against 4-time IPL winners Chennai Super Kings. Gujarat Titans won the toss and elected to bowl and gave the CSK team a chance to set the target, which was taken with open arms by the CSK team.

CSK sent their two openers Robin Uthappa and Ruturaj Gaikwad to open. But what CSK didn’t know was that their previous match-winning batter would not tolerate Mohammed Shami’s bowling attack. Throwing the second spell of his innings, Shami bowled brilliantly from line and length, which led to the CSK team losing their crucial wicket in the form of Robin Uthappa (3 off 10).

But then came South African player Moeen Ali(1 of 3), who tried to partner with Ruturaj Gaikwad while his beautiful game was on, Moeen was dismissed by Alsari Joseph.

Ambati Rayudu came to do what Moeen Ali wanted to do and he did quite a bit, but played well, scoring 46 runs in 31 balls, Ambati was sent back to the pavilion when he was trying to hit a shot at deep point. Where the fielder was already present to take the catch. Unfortunately, Rayudu could not complete his half-century but actually backed his team with the beautiful run score.

But then in the last few overs, skipper Jadeja and Shivam Dubey tried their best to hit the balls at every corner to get a decent run score for the GT team and scored a total of 169 runs.

The star players from the CSK team for this match were Rututaj Gaikwad, Ambati Rayudu and to some extent the unsung Ravindra Jadeja, who while trying taking runs between the wickets in the last over, was run-out by the fielder standing at the Long-off.

Now it was the time for the Gujarat Titans team to come and bat and in order to do so, they sent their two titan batsmen, RidimanSaha, and the Shubham Gill. But Oucchh, what!!?? We see Shubham Gill getting caught at the Silly Mid-off by Robin Uthappa delivered by Mukesh Chaudhary.

Then came in Vijay Shankar accompanying, Ridhiman Saha and trying to build partnership with him but unfortunately what we see is losing his wicket by getting caught behind the stumps scoring none from 2 balls and thenafter accompanied by Abhinav Manohar getting caught over the extra cover, and scoring only 12 off 12 balls.

The only batsman who played well for the GT stood out be David Miller, who played an unbeaten 94* run score, well supported by the asst. skipper Rashid Khan making 40 runs for his team and winning the match by 3 wickets.

The top batting order seemed quite not happening but somehow managed to surpass the run target and winning the match. Whereas from the CSKs end, it was yet another loss for them. They only have 2 points on the IPL points table and has to go a long way not sure whether being able to play the playoffs.

  • The Upstox Most Valuable Asset
  • The Unacademy Let’s Crack It Sixes, and
  • Dream11 Gamechanger of the match
