Gujarat Titans punch a ticket to the playoffs twice in a row

Gujarat Titans racked up 18 points after a convincing win over Sunrisers Hyderabad, who became the second team to be eliminated after Delhi Capitals.

The wicket of centurion Shubman Gill sucked the momentum out of the Tiatns’ innings. They stuttered their way to 188 as the wily old fox that is Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked up a five-wicket haul, including three wickets in the final over. He also inflicted 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. SRH could only manage 154/9 as GT became the first team to qualify for the playoffs in Indian Premier League 2023.
