Gujarat Titans vs Lucknow Super Giants

The Gujarat Titans team is a newbie to the IPL but they have played like a consistent team. In their first match of IPL 2022, the team defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 5 wickets.

Captain Hardik Pandya played a good inning of 33 runs. As a captain, he started with a win in the IPL 2022. David Miller and Rahul Tewatia turned the match around in the 16th over when KL Rahul showed his faith in part-time spinner Deepak Hooda over fast and blazing guns like Avesh Khan and Chameera.

Under the captaincy of KL Rahul, Lucknow Super Giants batted first and scored 158 for 6. In response, Gujarat chased down the target by 5 wickets in 19.4 overs. In the current season of the tournament, the chasing team has won all four matches.

However, the Gujarat Titans did not get off to a good start as they chased down the target. Opener Shubhaman Gill (0) was dismissed in the first over for a big shot off Dushmantha Chameera. Vijay Shankar, who landed at No. 3, also failed to contribute well.

He was dismissed for 4 by Chameera. After taking 2 for 15, Matthew Wade and Hardik Pandya scored 57 runs for the third wicket. Hardik scored 33 off 28 balls and was dismissed by the elder brother and left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya. Hardik hit 5 fours and 1 six.

Off-spinner Deepak Hooda also did well with the ball after the bat. He gave the fourth tweak to Gujarat by dismissing opener Matthew Wade. Wade scored 30 off 29 balls. He hit 4 fours.

After this David Miller and Rahul Tewatia built a crucial partnership in the midst of struggle. Gujarat Titans had to score 69 runs in the last 5 overs with 6 wickets left.

Match Turning 16th over By Lucknow Super Giants

The 16th over of the match can be called the turning point of the match. Even after the mist, KL Rahul chose Deepak Hooda for his third over and scored 22 runs in this over. Tewatia and Miller both hit a six and a four each. Now 46 runs were left in 4 overs. Ravi Bishnoi gave away 17 runs in the 17th over.

Gujarat Titans were in control at the moment and only needed 29 runs in 3 overs. Miller, meanwhile, fell victim to Avesh Khan, scoring 30 off 21 balls. He combined for 60 off 34 balls with Tewatia. Now 21 off 15 balls were needed which Gujarat Titans would have taken any day.

11 Runs Needed In The Last Over For Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans were to score 20 runs in the last 2 overs. Abhinav Manohar started the over with a four. No runs were scored on the second ball. A single on the third ball for Manohar. Tewatia failed to read the ball and it was a swing and a miss.

For the next ball, Tewatia finds a fine slice to send it for four with the following dot ball. Lucknow Super Giants were nervous defending 11 in the final over.

Abhinav Manohar hit the first ball of Avesh. Another ball and another four for Gujarat Titans. After a single on the third ball, Tewatia creamed a boundary through the covers on the fourth and clinched the victory. Tewatia was unbeaten on 40 off 24 balls and Abhinav Manohar on 15 off 7 balls. Tewatia hit 5 fours and 2 sixes while Abhinav hit 3 fours.
