Not the greatest match of the season, but a fascinating clash nonetheless considering how the two teams, vying for the IPL 2022 top spot, got off to contrasting starts but ended with an equally surprising ending. Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson won the toss and opted to bowl first against Gujarat Titans at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai. The debutants Gujarat Titans then lost quick wickets, only to see skipper Hardik Pandya (87 not out of 52) and Abhinav Manohar (43 off 28) reviving the innings. It was followed by a late flourish from David Miller (31 off 14). Unlike the Titans, Royals got off to a flier with Jos Buttler soon reclaiming the Orange Cap from Pandya en route to a stunning 24-ball 54. Royals, however, lost steam. And at the end, the difference was 37 runs. A big win. Titans now have eight points from five matches. Five teams are tied on second with six points each from five outings.

  • 14 Apr 2022 / 9:53 PM

    Buttler Show

    Yash Dayal continues. Hardik Pandya also back. Jos Buttker punches the first ball, and it bounces over square for a four. Bullet. A well-directed bouncer for the response.

    Dayal Strikes

    Debutant Yash Dayal, left-arm pacer, gets his first over. Down the leg and Jos Buttler flicks it for a four. A dot, then another. Magesterial from the England batter. Stands tall and dismisses. Through cover. And four. Then Buttler trickery. Walks across and ramps if for six, over fine leg. A single to mid-wicket, and now Devdutt Padikkal gets his first strike. And he's gone. Caught at first slip by a leaping Shubman Gill. 15 runs and a wicket off Dayal's first-ever IPL over. RR - 28/1 (2)

  • 14 Apr 2022 / 9:37 PM

    Buttler Class

    Mohammed Shami with the new ball. Jos Buttler takes the first strike. And a massive appeal for caught behind off the first ball, down the leg. Umpire unmoved. Titans take the review. No bat involved. Off the pad and clearly no chance for LBW. Rohan Pandit 1-0 Gujarat. Then a sumptuous four. Half volley and crashes into to the rope. Another four, using the pace and flicks for a four. Then another, this time past mid-wicket. Pure class. Good for eyes. And Buttler takes back the Orange Cap. 230 now, two more than Hardik Pandya's total. A dot, and a single to keep the strike. RR - 13/0 (1)

  • 14 Apr 2022 / 9:19 PM

    Innings Break

    Prasidh Krishna on with the last over of the innings. A wide, then a dot to Hardik Pandya. Outside off and the bowler is lucky. And a six, over point.

A nick and four through the cordon for Hardik Pandya to end the innings. 13 from the over. 0/35 for Krishna. 62 runs in the last five. 43 in the last two. Also, an unbeaten 53-run stand in 25 balls for Pandya (87 off 52) and Miller (31 off 14). And Titans' highest score this season. GT - 192/4 (20)

  • 14 Apr 2022 / 9:11 PM

    Miller Mayhem

    Kuldeep Sen returns for his final over. A full toss, but Hardik Pandya manages only a single past cover. A widish delivery and a David Miller gets enough bat to beat the short third man for a four. On the slot, and launch over long on for a six. Sen's pace is helping Titans' cause. In the dug out, Lasith Malinga is shaking his head. A couple, past cover. And one bounce to the boundary, over cover. 25 off the last seven balls. A full toss and four to backward point. Make it 29 in eight balls. 21 from the over. 1/51 for Sen. 40 runs in 19 balls for the stand. And Miller's contribution - 30 off 12. GT - 179/4 (19)

    Yuzvendra Chahal with his final over. A wide, then a dot to Abhinav Manohar. Two singles, then Manohar fetches the fourth ball from outside off and launches over mid-wicket for a six.

A little pat from the bowler to the batter. David Miller arrives. And a dot to the new man to end the over. Nine runs from it. 1/32 of Chahal tonight. GT - 139/4 (16)
