Tilak Varma turned the tide with a 24-run over off Mohammed Shami in the PowerPlay but Rashid Khan came back and struck in his first over to end the left-hander’s stay. He departed for an ebullient 14-ball 43. Mumbai Indians were buoyed by Suryakumar Yadav’s 61 off 38 balls before Mohit Sharma pegged his stumps back with a cleverly bowled full and straight delivery.
Earlier, carnage unfolded at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad as Shubman Gill notched up the triple-figure mark yet again, scoring his third century in the 2023 season in the Qualifier 2 match against Mumbai Indians. With the latest hundred, Gill joined Virat Kohli in an elite IPL club while gaining the ascendancy in the race to the Orange Cap.
Gill became the second Indian cricketer to score three or more centuries in a single season after Kohli’s mind-boggling 2016 campaign where he racked up four tons.
The dismissal that turned things back in Gujarat Titans' favour 🙌
