In a head-scratching match that took place between the Gujarat Titans and the Punjab Kings, there was Rahul Tewatia at one side doing wonders for his team, whereas, Jitesh Sharma, getting moved off-field for facing injury.

Gujarat Titans won the toss but let their opponent team bat first. Then two batsmen, the skipper Mayank Agrawal and Shikhar Dhawan came as openers. But as everything seemed well for the PBKS team initially, 2 wickets were seen falling suddenly when the team was only at 34 runs two-wicket during the run score of 34 and in form of Mayank Agrawal (5 from 9 balls) and then Johny Bairstow (8 off 8 balls).

While before the PBKS team would even think of anything negative, the player on the field Liam Livingstone (64 off 27), taking full responsibility started smashing balls to every corner of the stadium along with Jitesh Sharma (23 off 11).

The Punjab Kings player, Jitesh Sharma, who batted well for his team accompanying Liam Livingstone, making 23 off 11 balls, was later sent back to the pavilion. Actually, Jitesh hurt himself while diving to stop a boundary and unfortunately pulled his hamstring. Without further delay, as protocols suggest, the player was immediately taken off the field for proper diagnosis. To be precise, the incident took place while Rahul Chahar was bowling and Shubham Gill hit the bowl towards the point’s deep fielder where Jitesh was stationed, and during the process, Jitesh hurt himself.

The unfortunate incident for the player took place in the 11th over of the second innings when the GT team was batting. Liam Livingstone was declared the super striker of the match.

Later overs were handled by Rahul Chahar (22 off 14).

From the Gujarat Titans side, Shubham Gill and Mathew Wade came as openers and started scoring runs out of boundaries from every corner of the stadium, but the partnership was broken when Matthew Wade (6 off 7) was caught by Jitesh Sharma from behind the stumps. But then, Shubham Gill (96 off 58) and B Sudarshanhandled the situation and piled the run score up to 133 losing only one wicket at the time.

Well, now the thrill started when the 18 runs were needed out of 6 balls and all hopes for the Gujarat Teams were looking shattering until David Miller and Rahul Tewatia took the charge. When only two balls were remaining to achieve 12 runs, Rahul Tewatia did something mystical and smashed 2 huge six, in the remaining two balls, taking the entire GT team to surprise and winning the game.

The next match the PBKS team is going to face will be on April 13th against the Mumbai Indians and will still be very exciting to see whether the Mumbai Indians will be able to do a comeback in the league or not.
