Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia dominated proceedings in the last over against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) pacer Marco Jansen as they gathered 25 runs to win the match for Gujarat Titians (GT) in IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday. Needing 22 runs off the final six deliveries, Jansen was welcomed by a huge six by Tewatia off his first ball. Jansen came back well to give only a single on the second. However, what followed next was complete carnage as Rashid hit three sixes in the following four deliveries to seal a thrilling victory for his team. As Rashid teed off against Jansen, the camera showcased how former Sri Lankan legend Muttiah Muralitharan, SRH's spin bowling coach, seemed agitated and lost his cool.

When legends like Rahul Dravid and Muttiah Muralitharan loose their shit ...you know IPL has peaked!— Babu Bhaiya (@herapheri12) April 27, 2022
Jansen went for 63 runs in his four overs and was wicketless as SRH bowlers failed to provide the necessary support to Umran Malik, who claimed his maiden IPL 5-wicket haul.
Apart from Malik (5/25), no other bowler stood up to the challenge, especially at the death overs. Even left-arm pacer T Natarajan couldn't get his name in the wickets column and conceded 43 runs in 4 overs.
It was also the first time Natarajan had gone wicket-less in eight matches in IPL 2022.
The win helped GT regain the top spot while SRH find themselves at the third spot for the time being.
SRH are scheduled to play Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on May 1 while GT will face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on April 30.
