GT captain Hardik Pandya won the toss and chose to bat first. GT made one change as Lockie Ferguson came in for Alzarri Joseph and RCB brought in Siddharth Kaul for Mohammed Siraj.
They lost Shubman Gill early thanks to an excellent catch by Maxwell at slips. Then Matthew Wade walked in to join Wriddhiman Saha who was in good touch and made 16 in 13 balls with 2 fours and one six to his name.
Then Matthew Wade showed some good hitting abilities, stroking 2 fours and 1 six in his 13-ball 16-run knock before he was adjudged LBW by the on-field and TV umpires despite DRS replays showing a faint edge to the ball before it hit the pads.
However, Hardik Pandya played a captain’s knock, scoring 62* in 47 balls with 4 fours and 3 sixes, and thanks to contributions from David Miller (34) and Rashid Khan (19*) took the final score for the Gujarat Titans to 168/5 in 20 overs.
