Shubman Gill's 89 not out sets up formidable 199/4 for Punjab Kings

Shubman Gill's 89 not out sets up formidable 199/4 for Punjab Kings

Ahmedabad, Apr 4 (UNI) Captain Shubman Gill's stellar innings and the valuable contributions from other Gujarat Titans players played a crucial role in setting up a formidable target of 199 runs for Punjab Kings.
Gujarat Titans made a promising start, with Riddhiman Saha providing early momentum with 11 runs before falling victim to Rabada's bowling prowess.
Kane Williamson's return to the field after an injury spell was eagerly anticipated by the home fans, but unfortunately, he could only manage to score 26 runs in his comeback innings. Despite this, the Kiwi skipper's presence in the lineup was significant for Gujarat Titans.
It was Captain Gill who truly stole the spotlight with his explosive innings in the middle. His innings of 89 runs off 48 balls, which included 6 fours and 4 sixes, provided the much-needed momentum to Gujarat Titans' innings.
Gill's leadership and batting prowess played a pivotal role in guiding his team to a competitive total.
Sai Sudharshan's contribution with the bat further bolstered Gujarat Titans' innings. His fiery knock of 33 runs added valuable runs to the scoreboard, contributing to the team's respectable total in the allotted 20 overs.
Despite the efforts of the Punjab Kings' bowlers, who tried to apply pressure through their fielding as well, Gujarat Titans managed to post a challenging total.
The inability of the Punjab bowlers to extract much from the pitch also worked in favour of Gujarat Titans, allowing them to build their innings steadily.
However, Punjab Kings' Kagiso Rabada and Harshal Patel, put in a commendable effort by claiming key wickets. UNI BDN SSP
