Live Match Blog – Titans vs Capitals Round 10 2022 – Cricket Insights
As expected after that Powell wicket, it’s all over. Gujarat Titans became the second team to successfully defend this IPL. Thanks for join us. We leave you with a teaser of our report.
Shubman Gill’s big lone hand with the bat nearly went in vain, but Lockie Ferguson put in a great bowling performance to lead the Gujarat Titans to just the third successful defense this IPL. Gill scored a personal best 84 of 46 in a breathtaking but silky-smooth round; others, including the extras, hit just 87 of 74 balls. It was a strictly average total, which the Capitals seemed to hit twice, but an accurate and fast Ferguson produced two two-wicket overs for advancing the pursuit with numbers of 4-0-28-4. Gill was particularly stern on rotation, scoring 45 balls from 21 from Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav, who only conceded 24 of the remaining 27 balls between them as they had reason to believe they were actually controlling the middlemen . Just like DC’s hitters would have thought they were in control, but once he hit 90+ mph – even some of his offcutters were that fast – and he got higher than his chest, funny things happen. Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel and Mandeep Singh all fell for his short bowling game.
