RR vs GT: Rashid-Tewatia pull off Jaipur heist to end Rajasthan’s winning run

Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan played the perfect roles of finishers to power Gujarat Titans to a 3-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals to end their unbeaten run.

RR vs GT: All is well that ends well and Gujarat Titans made that happen despite numerous fielding errors, missed catches and a slow start. GT have ended RR’s unbeaten streak with a 3-wicket win in Jaipur. Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia were the stars as they chased down a 197-run target with a last-ball finish. Rajasthan Royals struggled initially to score runs freely in the match versus Gujarat Titans. But Sanju Samson (68 off 38) and Riyan Parag (76 off 48) led the team to 196/3 in the stipulated 20 overs.

Chasing a 197-run target, Sai Sudharsan and Shubman Gill provided a steady start but they were slow. And then, there was a Kuldeep Sen spell that rattled GT. But Shubman scored 44-ball 72 to keep things under control before Rashid Khan finished things off.

GT end RR’s run

15 runs were needed off the last over of Avesh Khan. It wasn’t going to be easy against Rashid and Tewatia. And despite a sloppy start, Gujarat have fought their way back to a win. They win by 4 wickets to end Rajasthan Royals’s four-match winning streak. There was drama though with Tewatia run out in the penultimate delivery. But Rashid Khan hit a boundary off the last ball to take GT across the finish line.

GT 63/0 after 8 overs.

End of powerplay

A modest powerplay. Gujarat score 44/0 in 6 overs. It’s not bad and not great either in a 197-run chase. Sudharsan must improve his strike rate.

GT 44/0 after 6 overs.

Spin choke early?

Sanju Samson hasn’t waited long to bring in the spin attack. Keshav Maharaj and R Ashwin are both in the attack inside the powerplay. And there is no power in the powerplay.

Steady start

Both Sai Sudharsan and Shubman Gill like to take time to get going and they are doing it here as well. They are off to a steady start.

Sawai Mansingh Pitch report

The Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur has hosted three IPL 2024 games thus far. While none of those games saw any team hitting 200 runs, the average first-innings total has been close to 190 this season.

One crucial factor to consider is how the pitch behaves under lights. In one of the games between RR vs DC, the second innings saw the surface develop some stickiness, aiding the spinners. A similar scenario might unfold during the RR vs GT encounter, especially if the first innings sees a flurry of runs. Early swing and some assistance for pacers are also anticipated in the initial overs.
