Virat Kohli struck a magnificent hundred at his adopted home but Shubman Gill stole the show with his own masterclass as the defending champions overhauled 197 to knock the hosts out of IPL 2023.
Alike Kohli, Shubman Gill scored a second consecutive hundred in Indian Premier League 2023, against the Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday. Gujarat made a sedate start to their chase, but Gill and Vijay Shankar added 123 game-changing runs to wrest back control. Shankar was dismissed on 53 by Vijaykumar Vyshak, but Gill continued the good work to lead his franchise to their 10th win of the season.
He reached the milestone with 5 fours and 8 sixes – Kohli hit a solo six in comparison – as the defending champions eliminated Royal Challengers Bangalore from the competition with Mumbai Indians sealing the last play off spot.
Mumbai Indians will meet Lucknow Super Giants in Wednesday’s eliminator, while Gujarat will take on the Chennai Super Kings in Tuesday’s playoff match.
Some memorable souvenirs for players and a lap of honour for the ever-so-energetic Chinnaswamy crowd 👏🏻👏🏻#TATAIPL | #RCBvGT | @RCBTweets pic.twitter.com/Y8dQzz2QyP
