GT Won IPL 12th Match

Gujarat Titans (GT) defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 7 wickets in a close match played on Sunday, March 31st. Here’s a breakdown of the key moments:

GT Bowling and Fielding Restricts SRH:

  • GT bowlers, led by Mohit Sharma (3-25), restricted a strong SRH batting lineup to a total of 162/8 in their 20 overs.
  • Spinners played a crucial role, with Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmad controlling the flow of runs in the middle overs.
  • Openers Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill provided a brisk start for SRH, but wickets fell at regular intervals throughout the innings.

Miller Takes GT Home in a Tense Chase:

  • GT’s chase started well with contributions from Saha and Gill, but they lost wickets at crucial junctures.
  • Sai Sudharsan (45) played a crucial knock, but it was David Miller’s late flourish (44* off 27) that sealed the win for GT.
  • Miller and Sudharsan stitched together a 64-run partnership that brought GT back into the game.
  • Miller remained calm under pressure and finished the chase with a six off the last ball.

Turning Points:

  • GT’s decision to use spin early in the innings paid off, slowing down the SRH scoring rate.

Looking Ahead:
