Shubman Gill slammed a match-winning half-century in the run chase of 154 but he left his team in dire straits in the final over after getting clean-bowled by Sam Curran for 67 off 49 balls.
Gujarat got off to a fine start in the powerplay in the run chase on a good IS Bindra PCA Stadium in Mohali as Wriddhiman Saha – who was electrifying behind the stumps – gave his team a good start with a partnership of 48 runs for the first wicket with Gill.
Saha played a brilliant cameo and scored 19-ball 30 before getting dismissed in the 5th over. Later, Sai Sudharsan (19) and Hardik Pandya (8) were dismissed in the middle overs but Gill took the responsibility and batted along.
However, his dismissal in the final over could have tilted the game in anyone’s favour. Earlier in the day, Mohit Sharma – who made his debut for Gujarat Titans – returned with impressive figures of 2/18 and bagged the player of the match award.
