And we have a big moment in the game as Sanju Samson departs but not before playing a wonderful knock. He came into bat when his team was 4/2. He has brought them into a winning position. Hetmyer and Jurel in the middle, as they chase 64 runs from the last 30 balls.. RR 114/5 (15 Overs).
Impact Player (GT): Noor Ahmed comes in for Shubman Gill!
Superb catch by Miller!
Another wicket for GT here, Rashid Khan strikes again. Riyan Parag is the man dismissed. Parag went for a flashy drive down the ground – goes hard and flat towards long-off and Miller takes a nice catch as the ball was dying on him.
Samson and Hetmyer in the middle, as Samson ends the over with a six!
RR 62/4 (11 overs), need 116 runs more from 54 balls! Req. Rate 12.89
GT vs RR: GT in firm control!
Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson have put together a recovery of sorts but have lost the former. Sanju Samson and Riyan Parag are in the middle. RR 53/3 after 10 overs. They need to get a move on as they still need 125 runs off the last 10 overs!
Rashid Khan gets Padikkal for the third time!
Padikkal charged out to the spinner’s googly to play a big heave. Only managing a leading edge he walks back for 22. Rashid strikes in his first over!
GT vs RR: End of the Powerplay!
The powerplay ends. Gujrat Titans on top at the end of the powerplay. They have dismissed the two leading run scorers of RR in this season. Padikkal has played glorious strokes and on the counter-attack. Samson has faced only 5 deliveries but has timed one for four flawlessly!
RR 26/2 after 6 overs, need 152 runs from 84 balls! They need this partnership to build and also look to score quickly!
Shami removes Buttler!
An excellent start by Gujrat Titans. They have removed both openers. Shami dismisses Butller for a 5-ball duck! Inswinging delivery, Buttler tried to scoop but gets beaten and losses his pole! RR 4/2 (3 overs).
Devdutt Padikkal and the Captain of RR at the crease. They need 174 runs more!
Edged and Taken!
GT captain strikes. Yashasvi Jaiswal opens the face to a fifth stump delivery only to edge it and send it straight to first slip. Gill makes no mistake. RR 3/1 (2 overs).
GT vs RR: GT set RR a target of 178!
The Titans have finished strong here. They get 58 runs off the last 5 overs. It might not huge total but still a challenging total! They might feel they are 10 runs short as they slowed down in the middle milking singles only! They finish with 177/7.
Rajasthan Royals need 178 runs from 120 balls to make it 3 in a row! As Yuzi Chahal pointed in his interview, heavy amount of due is settling in. With the firepower that RR posses, they’ll be confident chasing this. Gujrat Titans would look to take wickets in the powerplay like they always do!..
GT vs RR: Last 5 overs!
Rajasthan Royals have bowled three quite overs in the middle. GT were feeling Pressure and they went after Chahal taking him for 12 runs. How many GT score in the last 5?
They have now lost Gill too.. NO fifty for him today. He disappears in trying to take on Sandeep. GT 121/4 (15.2) as umpires signal break for timeout.
GT lose captain Pandya!
Chahal bravely tosses up the leg break inviting Pandya to go big. He accepts the invitation and tries to loft it but the ball spins away and results in a leading edge and goes only as far as the circle where Jaiswal completes a wonderful catch.
GT are 94/3 in 11 overs. Gujrat Titans did well to cover in the middle phase and have attacked the RR spinners. The last 5 overs has seen 52 runs and loss of Pandya! Miller and Gill are at the middle!
GT vs RR: Powerplay Done!
Shubman Gill goes after Ashwin in his first over taking him for 10 runs. A good start for both teams. GT are used to getting a more smooth start, but will take this against a good quality bowling attack. Interesting to see how GT would tackle this spin trio.
GT 42/2 after 6 overs..
Great Alertness get RR their second wicket!
Gill comes down the track and yorks himself. Jams it into the deck and the ball goes over the leaping bowler. Buttler is extremely alert reacting to the carom coming his way, charges forward to collect one-handed and fires a bullet on one bounce to Samson. Samson whips the bails in a flash and Sai Sudharsan is caught short of the crease! Great fielding by Rajasthan Royals overall. Shubman Gill is joined by Hardik Pandya at the crease!
Boult strikes early again!
And early exit for Saha! Boult strikes in the first over once again. Saha tried to whip this but is early in the shot and skies. With three fielders and the bowler converging under it, Boult holds onto a rebound catch to send Saha in the hut. GT 6/1 after 1 over.
