IPL 2024: Gill credits Mohit for honing skills and building confidence for execution

In a thrilling match at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Gujarat Titans secured a seven-wicket victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad, with Mohit Sharma starring with a brilliant 3-25. Captain Shubman Gill praised Mohit’s skill and confidence in executing his bowling plans, leading to the crucial win.

Mohit Sharma’s impressive performance on a two-paced pitch restricted SRH to 162/8, with GT successfully chasing down the target in the final over. Gill commended Mohit’s experience and dedication to practicing his skills, especially in challenging conditions like the scorching heat of Ahmedabad.

With 17 wickets at an economy rate of 8.13 in overs 17-20 for GT, Mohit has been a key asset for the team. Gill also highlighted the contributions of other bowlers like Azmatullah Omarzai, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, and Umesh Yadav in restricting SRH to a below-par total.

Sudarshan and Miller played crucial innings in GT’s chase of 163, with Gill also contributing 36 runs. Despite a slow start for some batsmen, the team managed to secure their second consecutive home win, displaying a strong performance with both bat and ball.

Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Pat Cummins acknowledged his team’s batting fell short by 10-15 runs, lamenting the lack of a player going on to score a fifty. However, he praised the bowlers for their performance and acknowledged the challenges of T20 cricket.

Gujarat Titans, with two wins in as many home matches, will face Punjab Kings next at the Narendra Modi Stadium, while Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Chennai Super Kings in their upcoming matches. The IPL 2022 winners look to continue their winning momentum in the tournament.
