Sanju Samson, the captain of Rajasthan, says that they felt really good after putting in that kind of a total, as the wicket was sticky. Feels that they batted really well. Adds that it was a bit two-paced and the bounce was also uneven. Calls it a tough wicket to bat on, and feels that it was a great performance from their batters.

Tells that they played well in this match as well but a few overs didn't go their way. Hopes for a good result in the next game.
Time for some interviews!
Earlier in the game, Rajasthan managed to put a big score courtesy of a fantastic knock by Buttler. The Rajasthan skipper, Samson was the one who provided the momentum and overall, Rajasthan had an upper hand going into the innings break. For Gujarat, apart from Rashid Khan, all the bowlers were expensive but the Rajasthan bowlers too could not keep the scoring rate under check and in the end, Gujarat inched ahead by winning those crucial moments in a tight game.
This was yet another one of those classic Gujarat chases that we have been so used to seeing this season. The target was a big one and the stakes were high but they have nailed some fantastic chases this season and this is another one of those. They lost Saha in the first over but Gill and Wade kept the momentum on their side as they found boundaries at regular intervals in the Powerplay. However, Gill got run out in the 8th over in an unfortunate manner and Wade followed soon. The best thing about this chase was the required rate never got out of the hands as Miller and Pandya planned it superbly. The second-last over though brought the equation to 16 off 6 but Miller, as cool as ever, finished the chase with three towering sixes.
Gujarat are heading to their capital - AHMEDABAD, for the FINAL OF THE INDIAN T20 LEAGUE, 2022. What a season this has been for them. What a fairytale this has been, not many people gave them the chance at the start of the season but their performance has proved once again that this is a team game and if you click as a unit, it is very hard to stop you. Rajasthan, on the other hand, should keep their heads high. They were in the match right till the end and were probably the more fancied team going into the final over but it was just the 'Killer Miller' magic that took the game away from them. They have yet another chance to bounce back and they have played good cricket so far and would be looking to end on the right side of the result in Qualifier 2.
David Miller, you beauty! He has pulled off another heist for Gujarat! Wow! What a finish and what a game to start the playoffs. We have seen some tremendous chases this season and this one is right up there!

DRINKS! Gujarat have paced this chase perfectly so far! The required rate is well under their control and with finishers like Pandya and Miller in the middle and a couple more to follow, it is safe to say that Gujarat are the favourite at the moment. However, a couple of tidy overs and a wicket or two can change the momentum completely as we are down to the final four overs now, to determine our first finalist of the Indian T20 League, 2022. Obed McCoy is back on.

Fuller and outside off, driven through covers for a single.
DRINKS! This is the highest Powerplay score for Gujarat this season and it is exactly what they needed while chasing a big score in a crunch game. They lost the in-form Saha early but these two have been positive and the momentum is on Gujarat's side now. Rajasthan need to break this partnership and a couple of tidy overs will help bring some pressure back on Gujarat. Yuzvendra Chahal to bowl after the break...
