Wunderkind Shubman Gill crafts maiden IPL ton

Gujarat Titans became the first team to qualify for the playoffs in Indian Premier League 2023, as they racked up 18 points after a convincing win over Sunrisers Hyderabad, who became the second team to be eliminated after Delhi Capitals.

Hyderabad ran into an in-form Shubman Gill, who crafted his maiden IPL century in 55 balls. He fell soon after reaching the landmark and as a result, the batting performance in the death overs was quite a far way off from what Gujarat Titans would have liked. They stuttered their way to 188 after the wily old fox that is Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked up a five-wicket haul, including three wickets in the final over. He also effected a run out in the same over to effectively achieve a team hat-trick.

The defending champions were 147/1 at one point and were well set for a big finish but SRH have pulled things back spectacularly at the end. Bhuvneshwar finished with 5/30, his second five-fer in the IPL.

Mohammad Shami then stunned Sunrisers Hyderabad in the chase with a three-wicket haul upfront, killing the chase for good.
