GT vs LSG Live Score: GT qualifies for the Playoffs after defeating LSG by 62 runs

GT vs LSG Live Score: Gujarat Titans became the first team to seal the Playoffs spot after they defeated LSG by 62 runs on Tuesday at the MCA Stadium in Pune.

The match was a low-scoring affair with Gujarat Titans putting up a below-the-par total of 144 runs. Later they bowled exceptionally well bundling LSG on 82 runs within 13.3 overs to register a massive 62 runs win. With this stunning win, Gujarat Titans occupy the top spot on the Points table with 18 points in their kitty.

In the pursuit of 145 runs, LSG couldn’t get off to a good start as they lost their first wicket in the 4th over in face of Quinton De Kock. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals as none of LSG’s batters could actually create an impact with the ball. Quinton de Kock (11 off 10) and Deepak Hooda(27 off 26), Avesh Khan (12 off4) were the only batters who scored in two digits. The rest of them got dismissed after scoring single-digit scores.

Mohammed Shami got the prized wicket of KL Rahul in the 5th over while the likes of Karan Sharma (4 runs off 4 balls), Krunal Pandya (5 runs off 5balls), and Ayush Badoni (8 off 11) all failed to face Gujarat Titans fierce bowling attack & succumbed cheaply. As a result, they were bowled out for a meagre 82 runs.

Rashid Khan starred with the ball after scalping 4 for 24 in 3.5 overs. On the other hand, debutant Sai Kishore returned with figures of 2 for 7 in 2 overs.

Earlier GT got off to a poor start with their opener Wriddhiman Saha getting dismissed within the powerplay overs. Captain Hardik Pandya & Matthew Wade too failed to resurrect Gujarat’s innings but Shubman Gill held strong at one end. He smashed boundaries & kept GT’s scoreboard ticking till the end.

Shubman Gill, Gujarat Titans’ lone fighter smashed 63 runs off 49 balls. David Miller & Rahul Tewatia too played valorous knocks to support Shubman Gill’s fightback. Miller scored 26 runs in 24 while Rahul Tewatia scored 22 runs off 16 balls to guide Gujarat Titans to 144 in the allotted 20 overs.

Though Titans failed with the bat but compensated well by wrapping LSG for 82 runs registering a 62-run win. With this win, GT moved on top of the Points table & proudly marched to the Playoffs Stage. On the other hand, LSG moved down to the second spot with 16 points in their kitty.
