Watch the best of Shubman Gill’s maiden IPL hundred

Sunrisers Hyderabad ran into an in-form Shubman Gill, who crafted his maiden IPL century in 55 balls. Gill exhibited his nonchalant strokeplay right through, barely putting a foot wrong. Despite hitting a solitary six, he managed a strike-rate of nearly 175 as he brought up three figures in a happy hunting ground.

The platform was set for the final flourish. However, the wicket of the centurion sucked the momentum out of the Titans’ innings as they stuttered to 188, with the wily old fox that is Bhuvneshwar Kumar picking 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 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.
