GT vs RCB: Gujarat’s Rahul Tewatia and David Miller have pulled off yet another heist to make it 8 wins out of 9 matches, and no team in the competition’s history has had more points after nine games than Gujarat.

Bangalore was a few runs behind at the midway point, and it cost them dearly in the end. In the Powerplay, they also failed to take up wickets, allowing the opposition to get off to a solid start.

The wickets fell in the middle overs, and Shahbaz Ahmed bowled brilliantly. Wanindu Hasaranga also took a handful of crucial wickets.

The veteran combination of Mohammed Siraj, Harshal Patel, and Josh Hazlewood, though, couldn’t stop the flow of boundaries at the death, and Bangalore lost for the third time in a row.

Their six-wicket victory over RCB was achieved with three balls to spare, with Rahul Tewatia and David Miller once again completing the task. Their undefeated partnership of 79 off 40 helped GT cruise past the 171-run target and cement their grasp on the table’s top spot. Tewatia earned the player of the match award after his 43 off 25.

Virat Kohli hit a half-century to help RCB reach a battling total after a spate of low scores. He and Rajat Patidar shared a 99-run second-wicket stand, but the former RCB captain required 53 deliveries for his 58.

By restraining Kohli, Pandya believes his bowlers helped tilt the game back in GT’s favor.

Hence Miller decides to play huge shots as the asking rate rises. Hasaranga is first dragged over midwicket for four. The legspinner becomes fuller and wider after that. Miller takes a step back and pushes himself over the coverage for a six on the shorter side.

Hasaranga does a good job of just giving up three points in the next four balls. Titans require 58 runs from their final five overs. Siraj will bowl the 16th inning, with Hazlewood and Harshal Patel completing the game.

Tewatia then casually smashed the final ball over long-off for a six. As a result, the equation went from requiring 13 from seven to only requiring seven from six.

Miller blasted Hazlewood over midwicket for four runs in the penultimate over, which he opened with a wide. Tewatita re-entered the game with a single, and he finished it off with a four-over extra cover. With eight victories in nine games, the Titans have a chance to make the playoffs.

Siraj tries to hit that strong length in the final over of the powerplay, but on the short side. Saha takes advantage of this by first hoisting him four times over the shorter boundary. 

Siraj then straightens out, although he’s still on the short side. For the second four of the over, Saha assists him over midwicket. In total, there are twelve from the over.

There aren’t enough words to appropriately describe the Gujarat team at the time. They may appear to be in trouble at times, yet they always manage to win games.

While Shubman Gill struggled, Wriddhiman Saha led his team to an early lead they both passed out, and Sai Sudharsan and Hardik Pandya followed suit. However, David Miller and Rahul Tewatia put on a match-winning combination of 79 runs in the final over to seal the victory.

The calm demeanors of both batters instill confidence, which is exactly what a winning run does.
