GT puts 208 on the board against MI; Gill, Miller, Manohar scored big

Shubman Gill

First Shubman Gill, then David Miller and Abhinav Manohar. Batting first, GT scored 207-6 against MI based on the incredible performance of three batsmen. Rahul Tewatia played a stormy innings at the end. Gujarat scored 77 runs in the last five overs.

Mumbai however started well. Arjun Tendulkar from MI gave only four runs to GT in the first over. He took the wicket of Wriddhiman Saha when he came to bowl his second over. Arjun’s ball was going outside the leg stump. At the last minute, the ball stuck to the glove and fell into the hands of the wicketkeeper. When the umpire gave out, Riddhi took a review. However, it did not help the GT camp but went in favour of MI. It can be seen that the ball touched his glove subtly.

A steady start from MI bowlers couldn’t help, as GT batters increased the pace of runs later

Hardik brought himself up as the wicket of GT fell in the beginning. He was hitting shots from the beginning only. Shubman Gill was giving him a suitable accompaniment. 17 runs come from an over from Cameron Green. But Piyush Chawla returned Hardik to GT pavilion in the seventh over. Suryakumar Yadav took his at the boundary while trying to hit a six.

Except Kumar Kartikeya’s over in the middle GT could no manage but to have alow run rate. MI bolwers had send Shankar back to the pavillion. Since Abhinav Manohar came to the crease, the pace of runs has increased a little. Shubman Gill (56) had earlier went back after hitting a half-century. Manohar and David Miller from GT continued to increase the pressure on the MI bowlers.
