Coming to the match, superb efforts from the Gujarat Titans attack, led by Rashid Khan (4/24), Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore (2/7) and Yash Dayal (2/24) destroyed the LSG batting line-up, restricting it to 82/10, winning the game by 62 runs.
With exception of Quinton De Kock (11), Deepak Hooda (27) and Avesh Khan (12), nobody could touch double digits for the side.Tight bowling by Lucknow Super Giants, led by the duo of Avesh Khan (2/26) and Mohsin Khan (1/18) restricted Gujarat Titans 144/4 in 20 overs here at MCA Stadium in Pune, despite Shubman Gill's knock of 63*.
It was not a very memorable day for GT batters, as they were not allowed to have partnerships lengthy enough to power the side to a big total as LSG bowlers kept taking wickets at regular intervals.
With this win, GT is now the first time to enter the IPL playoffs. (ANI)
