Asked to bat first, the five-time champions posted a whopping total of 218/5 in 20 overs, courtesy of Suryakumar Yadav‘s fiery century. Later, GT were restricted to 191/8, despite a quick 79-run knock from Rashid Khan. Apart from such a high-scoring action, another thing which grabbed a lot of eyeballs was Vijay Shankar‘s dismissal by spinner Piyush Chawla.
In the 7th over of Gujarat’s chase, Vijay tried to tried to play a defensive shot on Chawla’s delivery but the the ball dodged the bat and rattled up the off-stump. Vijay stood there in disbelief for a second and then gave a disappointing look as he had to depart for 29.
