IPL 2022: Highlights| Gujarat Titans(GT) Defeat De
On Saturday, the Gujarat Titans (GT) defeated the Delhi Capitals (DC) by 14 runs at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, winning their second game in a row in the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.

Lockie Ferguson's four-wicket haul helped Gujarat Titans defend a challenging score of 171-6 against Delhi Capitals. Shubman Gill's 84-ball knock drove Gujarat Titans to a solid total of 171-6. The Delhi Capitals got off to a rocky start when chasing a goal of 172. Hardik Pandya, the GT captain, led from the front to dismiss Tim Seifert in the second over, catching him near mid-wicket.

Mandeep Singh, who batted with Prithvi Shaw in the middle, got off to a fast start, blasting three fours off Mohammad Shami and Hardik Pandya's opening bowling attack. Lockie Ferguson took two wickets in an over after being called to bowl. Mandeep Singh was caught behind for 18, while Prithvi Shaw was caught at deep square leg by Vijay Shankar. As DC finished the powerplay at 43-3, Lalit Yadav, who came in next to bat, got off to a strong start by smacking two boundaries off Shami.

Rishabh Pant, the captain of the DC team, blasted successive fours off Ferguson, who was bowling at a fast tempo. After Lalit Yadav swept Rashid Khan for a six, DC were 79-3 at the end of the first ten overs, with a potential partnership on the cards. Pant hit two fours off Vijay Shankar, but GT was able to break the threatening combination when Lalit Yadav was out for 25.

With a six in the 14th over, Rovman Powell declared his arrival at the crease. Ferguson, on the other hand, brought GT back into the game by dismissing both the DC captain and Axar Patel in the same over. Rashid Khan took the game's first wicket, and DC needed 30 runs from the remaining three overs. In the 18th over, Shami struck twice on consecutive deliveries to eliminate the threatening Powell and Khaleel Ahmed. With DC needed 24 runs off the last over, GT finished the innings and successfully defended the total.

The Gujarat Titans, who were given the opportunity to bat first, did not change their lineup from the previous game. Mathew Wade, who was caught behind in the opening over off Mustafizur's bowling, was the first wicket to fall for GT. At the crease, Vijay Shankar joined opener Shubman Gill. As GT were put at 44-1 at the end of the powerplay, Gill smashed the first maximum of the innings in the fifth over. As Vijay Shankar pulled the delivery towards the stumps, Kuldeep Yadav, who was placed into the attack, smashed quickly.

Hardik Pandya, the GT captain, was in the middle with Shubman Gill. Pandya got off to a good start with a four, joining Gill in a vital third-wicket partnership. GT were 66-2 at the conclusion of 10 overs, with both Gill and Pandya opting for a change of pace. Shubman Gill achieved his 11th IPL half-century, followed by two more fours against Khaleel Ahmed, while Hardik Pandya smashed three fours. The left-arm bowler retaliated by removing the GT captain, Pandya, who was caught at long-on by Powell.

As he continued to target the DC bowlers, Gill did not let the momentum go away. In the 15th over, the GT opener smashed Kuldeep Yadav for four and six. After Gill added two more sixes to the total, he reached his highest IPL score of his career. GT were 145-3 at the conclusion of 17 overs before Khaleel Ahmed caught Axar Patel to halt Gill's magnificent knock of 84 off 46 deliveries.

In the 18th over, Rahul Tewatia and David Miller each hit a boundary off Khaleel Ahmed. In the following over, Tewatia hit a maximum over deep square leg, but he was caught by Shardul Thakur in the penultimate over of the innings. Mustafizur took his third wicket when Abhinav Manohar was caught near extra cover, giving GT a total of 171/6 in their first innings.
