Venkatesh Prasad on KL Rahul

Former Indian cricketer Venkatesh Prasad tweeted “Bottling a run chase when 30 needed off 35 balls with 9 wickets in hand requires some baffling batting.

Happened with Punjab in 2020 on few occasions losing games they should have won easily. As brilliant as Guj were with ball & Hardik smart with his captaincy, brainless from Lko,”
Gujarat did a fine job with the ball and used the spinners on spot to defend the low total.

The fielding, bowling and captaincy from Hardik Pandya were top notch. Gujarat Titans have now defended the lowest score of the IPL season 2023. The previous best was 154 by Lucknow against Rajasthan Royals.

Gujarat Titans currently sit in 4th position in points table. Gujarat Titans have enjoyed success in their very first IPL season, can they defend their title this time around?
