After winning the toss, the Gujarat Titans opted to bat first. However, they lost both their openers early in the innings. Shubman Gill was dismissed for nine runs, while Saha managed to score 21 runs before getting out. Skipper Hardik Pandya walked out to bat after the fall of the second wicket.

Kagiso Rabada was the pick of the bowlers for the Punjab Kings. He took four wickets, conceding 33 runs in four overs. In reply to Gujarat Titans’ 143 runs, the Punjab Kings lost a wicket early. Jonny Bairstow was dismissed for just one run by Mohammed Shami. Bairstow was promoted up the batting order, however, in the third over, he tried to pull Shami for a six.

However, the ball took the top edge and was caught by Sangwan, who dived to complete the catch. Bairstow’s opening partner Shikhar Dhawan is at the crease along with Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Punjab Kings are 43 for one down after the powerplay.
