Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 2022 highlights: Rashid Khan hit sixes off the last two balls of the match as Gujarat Titans smacked 25 runs in the last over to end Sunrisers Hyderabad’s winning streak.

GT vs SRH, Match Review:

Umran Malik’s sensational five-wicket haul went in vain as Rashid Khan hit two sixes off the last two balls to win the match for Gujarat Titans. The last over of the GT innings itself went for 25 runs, which was the number of runs that Umran Malik gave away in his entire four-over spell.

Umran took all five wickets that SRH managed on Wednesday. Wriddhiman Saha was the star of the show for GT with the bat, scoring 68 off 38 balls, but he was one of four batters who were cleaned up by Umran. Earlier, Abhishek Sharma and Aiden Markram’s 96-run stand, and a fiery finish from Shashank Singh helped SRH put up a target of  196 for GT to chase.

Post- Match Presentation:

Man of the Match Umran malik,

I always bowl fast but I’ve been trying to bowl better lines and lengths. Plan was to rotate between between my plans. Idea was to attack the stumps and it’s worked well for me. 155 (kph), hopefully it happens, but the main goal is to bowl well and pick wickets for my team.

Winning Captain Hardik Pandya,

I keep joking in the dressing room that God is telling us ‘You guys are good, I’ll help you’. It’s happening so often that I fear we may run out of luck in the knockout games. We keep a very chilled atmoshphere and everyone is stepping up. We’re ensuring that the players are backed well. (On his bowling fitness) It’s just a conscious decision to manage my bowling, plan is to bowl whenever the team needs me. It’s a long tournament and I don’t want to get too excited early. We’re quite practical, we’ve spoken about winning these situations and there is a lot of self-belief in the camp. It’s important to keep the calm in the dugout, lot of credit goes to the support staff for how they’ve been handling the players.

Rashid Khan,

Feels good, to go there and have that self belief and keep my shape stronger and hit it. Happy to deliver against them (SRH), just trying to play my game and have that belief on my batting which I’m working from the last two years. When it was 22 left. I just told Tewatia that we have given 25 in the last over with one of our best bowler bowling and I told him that we needed to have that belief and not panic, anything is possible. Just stay there, keep your shape and hit it strong and that was the plan (with Tewatia). I have bowled 4-5 bad deliveries which have been punished and that is something I had in my mind, you can’t miss your line and length on a wicket like this. It was a good wicket to bat on, but still we did well to restrict them to 196. As I said, I have’t bowled as well as I would have liked, this is good for my learning and will try my best not to repeat in the next games. It has been very calm and cool since day one and it’s a great team to be part of and everyone knows the responsibility and respect each other which is a very good thing. We have been given very positive energy from the captain on and off the field and specially our head coach Ashish bhai has kept the team in a beautiful environment. We are enjoying each other’s company and trying to give our hundred percent. So happy to win and these two points really helps the team in the end and lucky to be in the right side.
