199/7 (20.0/20)
Gujarat Titans beat Rajasthan Royals by 3 wickets
Right then! All the teams have lost a game now. Rajasthan keep the pole position despite losing the game while Gujarat earn two crucial points. That is it from this game. It is time for Mumbai to take on Bengaluru on the 11th of this month. That should be the game you wouldn't want to miss. Join us at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT) and earlier for the build-up. Cheers!
The captain of Gujarat, Shubman Gill is in for a chat. He says that he believed even after he got out. Mentions that they were targetting 45 runs in 3 overs and felt that it was very much possible. Feels that an Impact Player in the form of a batter has resulted in a shift in the mindset. States that he would have loved to finish the game but he is happy with the way Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia finished the game. Reckons that they were not too far behind in the game and winning a game on the last ball is a great feeling. Says that Rashid Khan is a fantastic player and he is someone you always want in your team.
Rashid Khan wins the Player of the Match award for his all-round performance. He says it was pleasing to help the team win the game as compared to his bowling effort. Tells he hasn't bowled much in the last 3-4 months due to injury but his fingers needs time to grip the ball and today's game helped him. Mentions it is a matter of hitting a couple of 3-4 sixes and the chase comes down under control.
...Presentation time...
Sai Sudharsan is in for a chat. Says that they gave away a few runs extra in the first innings. States that the plan was to get in a good Powerplay. Feels that they had an average first six overs and then lost a few quick wickets. Adds that they had the belief and he is happy to have won the game. Shares that the wicket was not easy to bat but feels that it got better in the second innings. Mentions that this was a much-needed win and it will give them the momentum.
The captain of Rajasthan, Sanju Samson says that it is hard to speak at the moment and jokingly says that it is one of the hardest jobs for a captain to speak after a loss. Credits Gujarat for the way they fought till the last ball. Mentions that they will learn from what they did not do right and move on. States that when he was batting, he thought that 180 would have been a fighting score. Opines that they had posted a winning score, especially considering that there was no dew and they should have bowled better. Ends by saying that 197 at Jaipur with no dew, they will take it any day.
Earlier in the day, Shubman Gill opted to bowl first and the bowlers started the proceedings well. They took two wickets inside six overs. However, their fielding department was below-par as Riyan Parag survived twice and he went on to notch another half-century. Samson played a magnificent innings as well but eventually, they fell short. It was Gujarat who held the nerves in the end as their batters chased down the humongous score successfully.
Sanju Samson had the option to go with the experienced Trent Boult but he went with Kuldeep Sen who was playing his first game of the season. Fairly, Sen was having a good game but to give the younger such a crucial over in such a crunch situation backfired. Still, 15 needed in the last over, Rajasthan and Avesh Khan failed to defend the total. Tough, tough call from Sanju Samson but he would have expected his bowlers to do the job.
It will take a lot of time for Rajasthan to digest this game. They had in control for a long time. Their bowlers kept on taking wickets regularly. They weren't worried of Gill holding the innings from one end with wickets crumbling on the other side, they were cruising through with ease. However, what kept Gujarat in the game was the cameos from the likes of Shankar and Khan. They played a quick innings of 16 and 14 respectively. Shubman Gill was hopeless with wickets falling over but he played a magnificent innings of 72 runs before departing. It though came down to the last two overs needing 35 runs. With Rahul and Rashid on strike, Rajasthan still had the upper hand but what a turnaround it was from the duo.
The fortress has been breached. Rajasthan lose from a certain winning position. What a game. Rashid Khan is the hero but not to forget the contribution from Rahul Tewatia too. Shubman Gill is all pumped up as he runs to the ground.

Avesh Khan To Rashid Khan
FOUR! Rashid Khan has done it for Gujarat! He sees his side home on the last ball! The fortress has been breached and Rashid has his arms aloft in celebration. Coming to the ball, not the best of deliveries from Avesh Khan as this is short and wide on off, Rashid Khan gets his front leg out of the way and frees his arms to slap it up and over point for a boundary to take Gujarat over the line. Joy on the faces of the players of Gujarat as they come charging onto the park to greet the man of the moment, Rashid Khan. Gujarat win by 3 wickets!

Avesh Khan To Rahul Tewatia OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! More drama! They had to go for the third run and Rahul Tewatia has sacrificed his wicket for the team here. Gujarat get 2 off the penultimate ball though which leaves them needing 2 off the last ball. Avesh Khan goes into the wicket and it is off-pace as well, around off, Rahul Tewatia waits on it and slaps it over mid off. He does not get enough bat on it to find the fence. Jos Buttler gives it a good chase and pulls it back. He is quick to release the throw at the bowling end and Avesh does the rest to catch Tewatia well short of his crease. The third umpire wants to check for a short run at the bowling end but Tewatia is fine on that count.
Rahul Tewatia is clearly run out as the batters look for three. However, more importantly, the third umpire is checking for a short run at the bowler's end, which is he second run but Rahul Tewatia had his bat grounded three too. So, 2 runs and a wicket of the delivery. That means Gujarat need 2 runs off 1 delivery.

Avesh Khan To Rashid Khan
A few inches to the left or right and it would have been a boundary for Gujarat. Avesh sees the batter make room and follows him with a fullish delivery, Rashid Khan drills it straight into the hands of extra cover and he feels that he missed out there. 4 needed off 2 now.
19.3

Avesh Khan To Rashid Khan
FOUR! Not where he intended but it does not matter one bit. Gujarat will take it any which way they come. The balance of power firmly in Gujarat's favour now, needing 5 runs off three balls. On a fullish length, outside off, Rashid Khan tries to squeeze it out on the off side. Gets it off the toe-end of the bat and it goes past the right glove of the diving Sanju Samson for a boundary.
19.2

Avesh Khan To Rashid Khan
They come back for the second and the equation is now 9 off 4. Full and straight, angling in, on middle and leg, Rashid Khan slogs it off the inner half of the bat wide of deep mid-wicket for a couple of runs.
Now, Avesh Khan, Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler having a quick conversation.  The fielders are running all over the ground. Pressure on Rajasthan here.

Avesh Khan To Rashid Khan
FOUR! A boundary off the first ball and Rajasthan are under the pump now. Avesh Khan almost nails the yorker. It comes out as a low-full toss, on off and middle, Rashid Khan stays low to make the connection and heaves it to the left of square leg and picks up a boundary. 11 neeed off 5 now for Gujarat..
Slow over-rate! A fielding penalty on Rajasthan as they have not completed the quota within the given time. Only four fielders outside the circle.

FOUR! Tewatia clears the in-field and he gets the reward. It almost went the distance for a maximum there and that leaves Gujarat needing 15 runs off the last over. Slower and on a back of a length, around off, Rahul Tewatia picks the change of pace and lofts it up and over mid off for a boundary.

Taken at deep square leg but it will not count as it was a Free Hit. Kuldeep bangs it on a shortish length, over off and middle, Rashid Khan tries to take on the short ball but gets a top edge that is taken by Shubham Dubey running in from deep square leg. The batters cross for a couple of runs.

Kuldeep Sen To Rashid Khan
FOUR! Would you believe it? Kuldeep Sen has overstepped and the siren goes off for a NO BALL. Kuldeep goes searching for the yorker but ends up dishing a low full toss, outside off, Rashid Khan clears his front leg and carves it over extra cover. Free Hit to follow now. Can Rashid make the most of it?
Riyan Parag, Jos Buttler and Kuldeep Sen having a chat. Crucial three balls from Sen coming up...

Kuldeep Sen To Rahul Tewatia
Kuldeep rolls his fingers over the ball and bowls it on a good length, outside off, Rahul Tewatia mistimes his pull to deep mid-wicket and will have to be content with just a single. Gujarat need to find the fence at least twice in this over, if not on all three balls.

Kuldeep Sen To Rahul Tewatia
FOUR! Rahul Tewatia finds the fence. A valiant effort though by Jos Buttler. Kuldeep misses his mark and serves a wide low full toss, outside off, Rahul Tewatia moves to the off side and lofts it extra cover. Buttler at mid off, gives it a chase and puts in the dive but fails to prevent the boundary.

Gets an inside edge that goes through his legs and it goes straight to short fine leg. Tewatia had given up but Avesh failed to hit the stumps at the batting end. A single taken.

Top stuff! Brilliant effort at the long on fence by Jos Buttler, saving three runs for his side. Avesh takes pace and goes into the wicket, around off, Rashid Khan hangs back and flat bats it down towards long on. It goes flat towards Jos Buttler who reacts quickly and dives to his left. The ball comes as a half-volley to him but Buttler does exceptionally well to keep it down to just a single.

Avesh Khan To Shahrukh Khan OUT!
OUT! Given LBW! A huge shout and up goes the finger! It looks dead straight but Shahrukh Khan has decided to send it upstairs. It looks more in hope than anything else. A low full-toss by Avesh, honing in at the stumps, Shahrukh Khan shuffles across a bit and goes for a heave across the line. He fails to get any bat on it and the ball pings him low on the front pad. There is nothing on UltraEdge. It is three reds on Ball Tracking and Shahrukh will have to make the long walk back. Avesh has started the over well, a wicket and just the 2 runs off it, but can he close out the over well?

Avesh Khan To Rahul Tewatia

Ashwin switches to around the wicket and lands it full, outside off, Rahul Tewatia shimmies down the track and goes inside out. Hits it well over extra cover for four more runs. We are in for an exciting end to this game with Gujarat needing 42 runs from 18 balls.

Ravichandran Ashwin To Shahrukh Khan
Pushes it through, short and on off and middle, Shahrukh Khan loses his shape as he goes for a swipe across the line. Gets it off the inner half of the bat to deep mid-wicket for a single.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Shahrukh Khan
A loud shout for LBW but this looks to be going down leg. Sanju Samson walks up to Chahal and takes the review with a couple of seconds left on the timer. This was pushed through by Chahal, on a nagging length, on middle and leg, Shahrukh Khan was unsure whether to play it off the back foot or the front foot. The ball skids through to go past the inside edge and pings Shahrukh on the flap of the back pad. The ball rolls off the pads to short fine leg and they cross. There is nothing on UltraEdge but the impact is umpire's call and the ball was going down leg on Ball Tracking. Rajasthan have now lost both their reviews.
Rajasthan review an LBW appeal. UltraEdge shows no bat. Ball Tracking shows wickets are missing. Not out it is.
15.5
1
Yuzvendra Chahal To Rahul Tewatia
This is flat and short, on off, Rahul Tewatia drops it in the vacant mid-wicket region and takes the single. Tewatia seems to be happy to see off Chahal without taking any risks against him.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Rahul Tewatia
Keeps it full and around middle and leg, Rahul Tewatia places it in front of deep mid-wicket and comes charging back for the second run.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Shahrukh Khan
Floats it up nicely, full and around off, Shahrukh Khan presses forward and knocks it to the left of the bowler. Chahal dives all over it and lets the ball go under his hands, allowing Khan to open his account.
Strategic Break! Rajasthan are right on top with Gill's wicket. Gujarat still have a couple of batters who could do the job but it looks a big task against the experienced Rajasthan side. They need 64 runs in 28 balls. Can Rahul Tewatia or Shahrukh Khan become the hero or Rajasthan will cruise through?

Yuzvendra Chahal To Shubman Gill OUT!
OUT! STUMPED! Yuzvendra Chahal fights back in grand style! Outfoxes the Gujarat skipper and this is a big blow to Gujarat. Chahal stays over the wicket and offers flight, on a fuller length but keeps it away from the batter. Bowls it near the tramline on off. Gill premeditates and advances down the track. He gets beaten in the flight and fails to get to the pitch of the ball. He reaches out to put bat to ball but it spins away to go past the bat and Sanju Samson does the rest. It is called a wide but it will not matter much to Rajasthan as they get the prized scalp of Gill. The Gujarat skipper is distraught as he trudges off.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Shubman Gill
FOUR! Two in two for Shubman Gill! Chahal drops it short and outside off, Shubman Gill anticipates the bowler to drag his length and waits in the crease. Slaps it wide of point and beats the man in the deep to his left for four more runs. Just the start to the over Gujarat needed, can they make it a big one?

Kuldeep Sen To Matthew Wade OUT!
OUT! CHOPPED ON! The break in play puts Wade's concentration away! On a skiddy length and outside off, angled away from Wade who tries to cut it late but bottom edges it back onto the stumps. What a spell this is from Sen. Second wicket for him.
Abhinav Manohar is in at number 4.
The wind has just changed direction and it has blown away the rain. The covers are coming off and the players are coming back on. Matthew Wade and Shubman Gill are all set to resume their innings. Kuldeep Sen with the ball in hand for Rajasthan and we are ready for resumption. Away we go...
UPDATE - 10.32 pm IST (5.02 pm GMT) - Uh oh! The wind has brought about rain, although it is just a drizzle but it is concerning enough for the umpires to stop the play. The ground staff come in with the covers and the square has been covered for now. In case you were wondering, Gujarat needed to be 85 at this stage and they are currently 8 runs short of the DLS par score.

Kuldeep Sen To Matthew Wade
Wide! Short of a length and angled away from Wade outside off. Wade slashes and misses. Rajasthan take it upstairs maybe because Sanju Samson felt there was an edge but there is daylight between the bat and ball. Rajasthan lose their review.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Shubman Gill
FOUR! Picks the gap to perfection does the Gujarat skipper. Chahal fires it in, full and on middle and leg, Shubman Gill presses forward and brings his bottom into play. Hits it between deep mid-wicket and long on for a much-needed boundary. 9 runs off the over but it is still not enough for Gujarat as they need to go at around 12 runs per over with 121 runs needed from the last ten overs.

Kuldeep Sen To Matthew Wade
Matthew Wade is welcomed with an absolute snorter! Kuldeep Sen bends his back and directs a sharp and quick bumper, at the batter, Matthew Wade gets rushed but does well to duck and get out of the way.
Matthew Wade walks in at number 3.

Kuldeep Sen To Sai Sudharsan OUT!
OUT! LBW! A big, big shout for LBW but the finger stays down! If there is no bat involved, Sai Sudharsan is a goner here. Looking at the replays, he has started to walk off and it seems that he knows that he has not gotten an inside edge. And yes, the UltraEdge confirms that there is no bat involved. Over to Ball Tracking now, it is three reds. Coming to the ball, it is pitched up, on off and middle, Sai Sudharsan walks across to the off side and exposes all his stumps, trying to scoop it over short fine leg. He fails to make any contact as the ball sneaks past the inside edge and traps him right in front of the stumps. Kuldeep Sen with an instant impact as he strikes in his first over.
Rajasthan have taken a review for LBW. If no bat, that looks plumb.
8.1
1
Kuldeep Sen To Shubman Gill
Starts off with a length delivery, sliding on the pads, Shubman Gill clips it in front of deep square leg for a single.
Strategic Break! The wind has picked up but the good thing is there are no signs of rain for now. Gujarat have started well. The openers have laid the foundation. They have started on the slower side but this is the kind of start you need while chasing a huge total. Rajasthan on the other hand needs to take their chances. Parag was dropped twice and went onto score a fifty. Sai Sudharsan was dropped in the last over. Can he make the most of it?

DROPPED! Yuzvendra Chahal shells it off his own bowling! Yuzvendra Chahal drops it short and it is slower as well, over middle, Sai Sudharsan goes on the back foot and punches it uppishly back to the bowler. Chahal is late to react and the ball hits him on the right thumb and rolls away to long off. We saw how costly dropping Riyan Parag proved to be for Gujarat. How costly will this drop prove for Rajasthan?

Yuzvendra Chahal To Sai Sudharsan
