In the clash between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Narendra Modi Stadium, SRH, led by Pat Cummins, won the toss and elected to bat first. However, their innings got off to a shaky start with Mayank Agarwal’s early dismissal for 17 runs off 10 balls in the fourth over. Despite a resilient partnership between Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma, GT spinner Noor Ahmad managed to break through, dismissing Head shortly after the powerplay.

Mohit Sharma emerged as the standout bowler for GT, conceding just three runs in the final over as SRH posted a total of 162-8 in their 20 overs. GT’s opening pair, Wriddhiman Saha and Gill, got off to a solid start, putting up 36 runs before Shahbaz Ahmed claimed the first wicket for SRH. Skipper Gill contributed 36 runs off 28 balls, while Sai Sudharsan continued his impressive form with a brisk 45 off 36 balls. David Miller’s explosive knock of 44 off 27 balls ensured GT’s comfortable seven-wicket victory over SRH.

SRH arrived in Ahmedabad with confidence after their record-breaking performance against Mumbai Indians but were unable to replicate their success against GT. Meanwhile, GT, led by Shubman Gill, started their campaign with a win over Mumbai Indians but suffered a defeat to Chennai Super Kings in their previous fixture. Gill, along with Miller, played a crucial role in GT’s victory over SRH.

The addition of Australia’s Matthew Wade to the GT camp brought further depth to their squad, while SRH faced a setback with the absence of Wanindu Hasaranga due to injury. Heinrich Klaasen led SRH’s batting charge but was outsmarted by GT’s Rashid Khan.
