MI celebrates RCB’s loss against GT in RCB vs GT IPL 2023: Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans defeated Faf du Plessis’ Royal Challengers Bangalore in one of the most important matches for RCB (to win) by 6 wickets. This defeat of RCB ensures the playoffs ticket for Mumbai Indians in TATA IPL 2023.
Virat Kohli’s seventh Indian Premier League century went into vain as the Gujarat Titans, riding on Shubman Gill’s century, crushed Royal Challengers Bangalore’s dreams to qualify for the playoffs.
The Mumbai Indians defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wickets earlier that afternoon at the Wankhede in a game they had to win. Even though MI won the game, the defending champions’ victory over RCB was necessary for their playoff berth to be secured. The Mumbai Indians (MI), five-time champions, celebrated highly on Sunday after securing a spot in the IPL 2023 playoffs.
The RCB vs GT match was delayed due to rain but as the event started, RCB batted first and Virat took on the flight when he started to blast over GT bowlers. Virat amassed 101* runs in 61 balls which helped RCB to reach the 197-run mark.
GT on chase lost Saha early in the 3rd over. Gill stood there and replicated what Kohli did in the first Innings. He too smoked 104 off just 52 balls with the winning six and handed RCB not only a loss but also the elimination ticket.
The moment Gill struck the game-winning six to lead GT to victory and help them earn their second straight IPL playoff ticket, MI players who were glued to their televisions began to rejoice.
The team’s account and Twitter followers afterward uploaded a portion of the behind-the-scenes footage that Vishnu Vinod published as his Instagram story.
