Wriddhiman Saha finished the game undefeated on 67 off 57 balls as he cruised Gujarat Titans to a win that would assure that they will finish within the top 2 this edition.
Saha got GT off to a super start following their bowlers restrained Chennai Super Kings to a score of 133/5.
Ruturaj Gaikwad smashed his third half century however he was dismissed for 53 runs off 49 balls. He was one of just 3 batters who managed to get to double digits score and keep the strike rate of over 100.
Gujarat Titans are looking for nothing less than a victory to assure a top-2 finish when they take on ex-champions Chennai Super Kings.
Whilst GT assured their play-offs berth following a comprehensive 62-run victory over Lucknow Super Giants, CSK collapsed to a five-wicket trounce versus Mumbai Indians.
The credit for GT’s superb run in their opening version largely goes to their ability to fight back from unfavourable situations.
But of late, GT’s batting unit has fizzled-out and Hardik would be looking for some consistent performances from his batters.
