It’s all about Hardik Pandya’s slow innings and Lockie Ferguson’s horror overs. Although there is nothing to save if you overflow the runs in below per target . All credit goes to Sunrisers Hyderabad, They repaired CSK a few days back and now Gujarat has also been defeated. Both the captains scored half-centuries today but Kane Williamson’s effort with the bat and his scintillating bowling attack was a little too good for the Gujarat Titans. It always happens if the opener gets a 50+ score partnership then the chances of winning become high. Gujarat Titans must have been spoiling the fact that they scored 15-20 less runs with the bat and that didn’t help their case.
Finally Sunrisers Hyderabad break the winning streak of Gujarat Titans in 21st Match of IPL . First Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and invited Gujarat Titans to bat and Captain Pandya played the slowest innings ever in his IPL history.
Hardik Pandya’s slowest 50s in IPL:
42 balls v SRH, Today
41 balls v RCB, 2018
25 balls v KKR, 2015
20 balls v RR, 2020
17 balls v KKR, 2019
I think they were 7-10 runs short in terms of batting, that would have made difference in the end. they started well with the ball, but the two overs in which they scored 30 got them back in the game. They bowled well and stuck to their plans, credit to them for the way they bowled. We’ll chat and laugh because our next game will be in a few days. Says Hardik Pandya | GT captain:
I thought a very nice game of cricket. Probably it was a par total. They had a strong bowling attack. We wanted to get partnerships and we got that. There are many challenges. execution was pretty good. It was tough to hit through the line. It was a very nice improved performance today. Says Man of the Match player Kane Williamson
