Gujarat Titans register the seventh win of IPL 2022 after they beat SRH last Wednesday in an absolute nail-biter by five wickets. In an amazing game of cricket, where Hyderabad put up 195 runs on the board, the Gujarat players had a tough chase with wickets falling in between. However, it was Rashid Khan and his partnership with Rahul Tewatia that helped the team land on the winning side after a superb knock from the opener Wriddhiman Saha.
Let’s take a brief look at the top factors that helped Gujarat Titans win the game against the Williamson-led side.
Three Factors That Helped Gujarat Titans Land on the Winning Side
Here, let’s take a look at the three crucial factors that helped Gujrat Titans be on the winning side after the top-notch thriller.
Brilliant Knock from Wriddhiman Saha in the Opening
Chasing a mammoth total of close to 195, needed the GT batsmen to be pumped up from the beginning. The same was rightly executed by opener Wriddhiman Saha who kept on thrashing the opponent bowlers with 11 fours and a six until he was bowled by Umran Malik. He scored 68 off just 38 deliveries.
SRH Bowlers Failed to Take Wickets
While Umran Malik was spectacular with the ball, picking up all the five wickets of the opponent conceding just 25 runs, other SRH bowlers couldn’t support him. They couldn’t pick up wickets and go for big runs in their stipulated four overs.
Rashid Khan’s Magnificent Finish
In the last over, when Gujrat Titans still had to put 22 runs on the board, captain Williamson gave the ball to Jansen. Rashid Khan took 25 of his over, helping his team cross the winning margin. He cantered a terrific 31 off just 11 balls that included 4 big sixes. His partnership with Rahul Tewatia (40 off 21) played a crucial part in the concluding phase of the inning to help Gujarat Titans snatch away the win from SRH.
