Riding on an exhibition of hard-hitting from Abhinav Manohar, David Miller and Rahul Tewatia, Gujarat Titans flexed their batting muscles to hoard 77 runs off the last four overs against Mumbai Indians. The defending champions end up with a robust 207/6 after being inserted at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Earlier in the tournament, Sunrisers Hyderabad made a hash of the manageable 145-run chase as Delhi Capitals manage to keep their campaign afloat in Indian Premier League 2023. Mayank agarwal looked in good touch in the powerplay while his opening partner struggled. Harry Brook tried to play a cheeky shot against Anrich Nortje and perished.
The hosts scored just 36 runs in the first six overs and the Capitals tightened the noose further in the middle overs. There was a 26-ball phase without any boundary, which resulted in the dismissals of Agarwal and Tripathi in quick succession. The fallow period, in hindsight, cost them two easily attainable points.
2️⃣2️⃣ runs off the 18th over 🔥🔥
Abhinav Manohar departs after a quick-fire 42(21) 💪🏻
