IPL 2023 Points Table, Orange Cap, Purple Cap: Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans (GT) took an unassailable win against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Friday night to strengthen their position atop the points table with a total of seven victories in 10 matches. Gujarat defeated Rajasthan by nine wickets, after a rare failure from RR’s batting unit at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium.
Once again Gujarat bowlers put up a fascinating show with their fine skills which saw them restricting the opposition to a meagre total of 118 runs in 20 overs. Jos Buttler continued his lean patch as he was dismissed by Hardik Pandya and then Yashasvi Jaiswal was run out by Sanju Samson. Then skipper Samson himself couldn’t do any better for the side and got dismissed.
Samson remained the highest run-getter for his side with the contribution of 30 runs. The rest of the batters couldn’t score more than 15 runs and eventually, RR got just 118 runs on board to defend against Gujarat Titans (GT).
Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha both got some runs for Gujarat Titans (GT) and stitched a 71-run opening wicket partnership. Gill was dismissed by Yuzvendra Chahal, but then the incoming batter Hardik Pandya looked in a hurry to finish the game and tonked 39 runs in just 15 balls to take his side home by nine wickets.
