Will Jacks smashed an unbelievable hundred as the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) made a mockery of the 200-run target against the Gujarat Titans at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Jacks' 100* overshadowed Virat Kohli's unbeaten 70 as the Englishman clobbered 10 sixes amid his innings, putting Rashid Khan and Mohit Sharma to the sword.

Gujarat Titans have given themselves a chance of clawing their way back in IPL 2024 after putting on a formidable 200 against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. B Sai Sudharsan, who stayed unbeaten on 84, shared a magnificent 86-run stand with Shah Rukh Khan to set things up for their side.

Pitch Report:

"It's very hot today, 62m and 64m square boundaries while the straight boundary is at 72m. The wicket looks pretty good, but it's quite dry. It should spin a bit and will be consistent even if you're batting first or second. 180 could be a good score batting first, but both teams will rely heavily on spin and changes in variations." reckon Graeme Smith and Michael Clarke

Preview:

Gujarat Titans and Royal Challengers Bengaluru are taking on each other for the first time in the ongoing IPL season. GT are return to action after losing their previous match against Delhi Capitals while RCB won their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
