GT vs RCB, Match Review:
Gujarat Titans’ Rahul Tewatia and David Miller closed out any chance that Royal Challengers Bangalore may have seen when they took a clutch of wickets in the middle overs as they chased down a target of 171 with three balls to spare.
Tewatia and Miller put up an unbeaten stand of 79 runs off 40 balls for the fifth wicket, thus helping GT to a six-wicket win. Openers Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill put up a stand of over 50 runs for the second consecutive time but RCB with Wanindu Hasaranga and Shahbaz Ahmed combining to take four wickets. Earlier, Virat Kohli finally scored his first half century of the season, putting up 58 off 53 balls.
He put a second-wicket stand of 99 runs with Rajat Patidar, who himself scored 52 off 32 balls. Glenn Maxwell then gave RCB the impetus in the death overs by scoring 33 off 18 balls after which Mahipal Lomror smashed 16 runs off eight deliveries in the end to get RCB to 170/6.
Rahul Tewatia has been adjudged the PLAYER OF THE MATCH (43 off 25 balls) for his match-winning antics yet again.
Bangalore were definitely a few runs short at the halfway stage and it has cost them dearly in the end. They also failed to pick up wickets in the Powerplay which allowed the opposition to get off to a good start. The wickets did come in the middle overs and Shahbaz Ahmed bowled exceptionally well. Wanindu Hasaranga too picked up a couple of important wickets. At the death though, the experienced trio of Mohammed Siraj, Harshal Patel and Josh Hazlewood just couldn’t stem the flow of boundaries and Bangalore succumbed to a third defeat in a row.
