Indian Premier League 2023: The 23rd match of the 16th season of IPL was very exciting to see. The match played between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) saw many ups and downs, in which the Rajasthan team, chasing the target of 178 runs, managed to score only 26 runs in the first 6 overs. While she was successful, she finished the match in 19.2 overs only. After the defeat in this match, Gujarat team captain Hardik Pandya expressed his unhappiness over the performance of his bowlers.
Hardik Pandya said after the defeat in this match that if I say honestly, I did not expect this result after the power play was over. But this is the specialty of this game that you cannot decide anything about the result until the match is over and we got to learn a new thing today. Noor Ahmed is a good bowler, which is not an easy task to understand, but other bowlers did not perform as expected.
After this, Hardik further said that it is a very long tournament and we still have to play many matches. I think in this match we had to score at least close to 200, in which we could probably score 10 runs less.
Sanju Samson’s captaincy innings turned the match, Hetmyer did a brilliant finish
Talking about this match, Rajasthan Royals team was able to reach the score of 53 in 10 overs while chasing the target of 178 runs. After this, the captain of the team, Sanju Samson, batting brilliantly, completely overturned the match. Samson’s bat saw an inning of 60 runs in 32 balls, which included 3 fours and 6 sixes.
After Sanju returned to the pavilion, Shimron Hetmyer took over the responsibility of taking the team towards the target while handling the innings. While the Rajasthan team achieved this target in 19.2 overs, Hetmyer’s bat saw a brilliant unbeaten inning of 56 runs in 26 balls.
