Rahul Tewatia and David Miller once again proved to be the game-changers for Gujarat Titans (GT) as the Hardik Pandya-led side notched up a six-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 43rd match of IPL 2022 on Sunday.
After losing their top four batters for just 95 in 13 overs, GT were far behind the set total of 171. Thanks to Tewatia and Miller’s heroics, the Ashish Nehra-coached team reached the finishing line in the last over.
Earlier, RCB won the toss and opted to bat first in the afternoon fixture. After losing an early wicket of their captain Faf du Plessis, RCB rebounded with Virat Kohli and Rajat Patidar adding a 99-run partnership for the second wicket. With the help of Kohli and Patidar’s half-centuries, the Challengers posted 170/6 on the board in their stipulated 20 overs.
