PBKS vs GT Highlights: Gujarat Titans win by 6 wickets – Gujarat Titans have climbed to the top of points table with a 6-wicket victory over Punjab Kings on Thursday. While Sam Surran almost pulled off a heist with an excellent last over, Iceman Rahul Tewatia held his nerves to score the winning run. But it was Shubman Gill who scored an excellent 49-ball 67 to help GT chase down a 154-run target. Earlier, Punjab Kings struggled once again with Mohit Sharma bagging 2/18 on IPL 2023 return after 4 years. But Shahrukh Khan’s 9-ball 22 helped them post 153/8 in Mohali.

Punjab Kings Innings Highlights: Earlier, medium pacer Mohit Sharma marked his return to the IPL with excellent figures of 2/18 as holders Gujarat Titans restricted Punjab Kings to 153/8. Playing in his first game in the league since 2020, Mohit was exceptional in the penultimate over, giving away as little as six runs.

Matthew Short top-scored with a 24-ball 36, but it was Shahrukh Khan’s 9-ball 22 that helped PBKS cross 150.

Sent into bat by GT captain Hardik Pandya, PBKS lost Prabhsimran Singh in the second ball of the over. Short walked in at No 3 and showed glimpses of his form in BBL 2022.

Australia’s Short, who has done well for Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League back home, took on Shami and hit him for back-to-back fours including an authoritative boundary through mid-off.

However, just when PBKS seemed to be putting GT under pressure, Little gave a huge breakthrough, dismissing the dangerous Dhawan (8).

Gujarat Titans got another big wicket when Rashid (1/26 in 4 overs) foxed a well-settled Short with a googly.

Having struck a flurry of fours and a massive six off Joseph, Short had settled down nicely but looked clueless when Rashid decided to bowl the wrong’un.

Short’s dismissal set PBKS a bit, and it became trickier when Jitesh Sharma (25 off 23 balls) was sent back by Mohit. Sam Curran (22) struck a much-needed six a big maximum over deep midwicket after star leg-spinner Rashid missed his length.

Sri Lankan Bhanuka Rajapaksa did not convince in his 26-ball 20, until his stay in the middle was cut short by Joseph.

Shahrukh Khan smashed the first ball he faced for a six over deep midwicket, before picking up another maximum off Shami.
