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.

A. Khan
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.
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.
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.

K. Sen
Kuldeep Sen To Rahul Tewatia
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.
Kuldeep Sen To Rashid Khan
Leg bye! Well bowled! Sees the batter make room and follows him, Rashid Khan moves to the leg side and has a swipe across the line. It comes off the thigh pad and they cross as the ball rolls on the leg side. Big delivery coming up. Gujarat need to find the fence and get the runs needed under 15.
Kuldeep Sen To Rashid Khan
WIDE! Sen gets it wrong again as slips in a slower delivery, short in length, down in leg, Rashid Khan misses out on the connection. Wide called.
Kuldeep Sen To Rashid Khan
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.
Kuldeep Sen To Rahul Tewatia
WIDE! Goes beyond the wide guideline on off, on a fuller in length, Rahul Tewatia lets it go for a wide.
Kuldeep Sen To Rashid Khan
A direct hit and it would have been curtains for Rahul Tewatia. Kuldeep Sen goes full and straight, at the stumps, Rashid Khan clears his front leg to hoist it across the line. 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.
Kuldeep Sen to bowl the penultimate over. 35 runs needed in 12 balls.
