Gujarat Titans (GT) opener, Shubman Gill notched up the highest score in his Indian Premier League (IPL) career as he scored 84 against Delhi Capitals in match 10 of the season. Delhi Capitals (DC) skipper, Rishabh Pant won the toss and invited GT to bat first. Hardik Pandya on his behalf said that he was looking to bat first for a change and his wish was fulfilled.
Both Delhi and Gujarat won their first match of the season heading into this contest. The Titans lost Matthew Wade in the first over itself. The onus was on Shubman Gill to get them off to a good start after the right-hander was out for a duck in GT’s opener against Lucknow Supergiants.
Gill paced his innings beautifully after he was slow to get off the blocks. He scored 86 off 46 balls with six fours and four sixes. Gill added a 65-run stand with his skipper Hardik Pandya (31) who himself looked good to score a fifty but couldn’t.
There was a lot of frustration when Gill was finally dismissed by Khaleel Ahmed down the mid-on boundary line. Axar Patel kept a cool head and completed the catch much to the happiness of the Delhi players and fans. The right-hander looked set to get his maiden IPL ton but it was not to be in the end. Gill walked back disappointed and gutted about himself.
Here is the video of the dismissal of Shubman Gill:
