Final Result:

Gujarat Titans (147/7) Beat Punjab Kings (142) By 3 Wickets. Rahul Tewatia 36*, Harshal Patel 3/15.

Mid-Innings Score:

The Gujarat Titans spinners, spearheaded by R Sai Kishore, outwitted an ill-prepared Punjab Kings batting lineup, dismissing the hosts for 142 in the Indian Premier League encounter held here on Sunday.

Punjab Kings, known for their struggles in the powerplay this season, made a brisk start, reaching 45 without loss in five overs. However, their innings spiraled downward as the trio of spinners - Sai Kishore (4/33), Rashid Khan (1/15), and Noor Ahmed (2/20) - exposed their vulnerabilities with their craftiness.

Despite their earlier struggles, Prabhsimran Singh (35 off 21) found some form before perishing in the sixth over, triggering a collapse.

The spin trio dismantled Punjab's batting lineup, with Sai Kishore varying his pace effectively. Noor struck first, dismissing Rilee Rossouw (9 off 7) lbw, while Rashid accounted for skipper Sam Curran (20 off 19) with a surprising lbw decision.

Toss Update:

Punjab Kings captain Sam Curran won the toss and elected to bat first in Mullanpur. This is Match 37 of the Indain Premier League (IPL 2024) which is taking place in Punjab's home ground.

Pitch Report

"Dimensions - 70m and 63m square, 72m down the ground. Expect the bowlers to be defending towards that bigger side. All four matches this season have gone all the way here at this venue ending in the final over. We've had some thrillers. Heavy bias for the fast bowlers - 47 wickets, just nine to the spinners. The big reason is the pace and bounce in this wicket. We've seen good carry, we've also seen a little bit of extra swing here at this venue," reckon Simon Katich and Samuel Badree.

Gujarat Titans Squad: Wriddhiman Saha(w), Shubman Gill(c), Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Rahul Tewatia, Shahrukh Khan, Rashid Khan, Mohit Sharma, Noor Ahmad, Spencer Johnson, Sandeep Warrier, Sharath BR, Darshan Nalkande, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Manav Suthar, Matthew Wade, Vijay Shankar, Umesh Yadav, Kane Williamson, Jayant Yadav, Joshua Little, Kartik Tyagi, Azmatullah Omarzai, Sushant Mishra
