GT vs DC: Felt good to contribute runs for myself and the team-Shubman Gill on his aggressive 84

Shubman Gill missed out on his maiden Indian Premier League hundred but said that he was happy to contribute runs for himself and his team, Gujarat Titans, after scoring an aggressive 84 against Delhi Capitals in the tenth match of IPL 2022 in Pune on Saturday.

Gill played his best ever knock in the IPL scoring 84 runs off 46 balls to help Gujarat Titans set Delhi Capitals a 172-run target at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

Gill kept on hitting boundaries and sixes to go past his highest individual score of 76 in IPL. Khaleel Ahmed got his second wicket as he removed the dangerous Gill for 84 off 46 balls, who had hit six fours and four sixes. Rahul Tewatia joined David Miller in the attack and the duo took the team’s total beyond the 150-run mark in 17.3 overs.

"It felt good. It felt good to contribute runs for myself and the team. I didn't realise that (about his low dot ball percentage) but that was the plan," Shubman Gill told broadcasters after the first innings.

Earlier, Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant won the toss and put Gujarat Titans to bat. Pant justified his decision to play Mustafizur Rahman as the left-arm pacer dismissed opener Matthew Wade caught behind for 1 in the very first over to give Delhi a perfect start. Shubman Gill and all-rounder Vijay Shankar then struck a partnership and the duo took the team’s total to 44 in six overs of Powerplay.

"To keep rotating the strike and take the singles whenever possible. I think the wicket was pretty good. Was holding a bit in the start, but as the game went on, I thought it settled down.

"I feel anywhere between 165-180 is a good score on this wicket, so hopefully we will be able to defend it," Gill signed off.
