Prasidh Krishna to Miller – 4, wd, 4
A couple of boundaries in the same over and Gujarat Titans are just 11 runs away from their maiden IPL title. Miller has been brilliant this season, especially as a finisher and tonight, he is doing it again. GT: 120/3 after 16.5 overs.
Ashwin has failed to do the magic tonight. Another loose ball and gets hammered for a biggie. Tossed up on middle and leg, Miller clears front leg and tonks it over deep midwicket. 100 run on the board, GT: 106/3.
Obed McCoy bowls a length ball outside off and gets punished by Miller. The South African batter moves forward and hits it between mid-off and extra cover. GT: 95/3 after 14.4 overs
Chahal has done it. He breaks the 63-run stand between Hardik Pandya and Shubman Gill by dismissing the former. A leg-break on a length, Pandya looks to whack it but ends up edging it to Yashasvi Jaiswal at slip. Major breakthrough for the Royals. GT: 86/3 after 13.2 overs.
Gujarat Titans captain is speeding up the chase with some handsome shots. Hardik Pandya smashes a boundary off Ashwin through third man and then follows it with a maximum over wide long-on. Excellent stroke play by Hardik Pandya. GT: 74/2 after 12 overs.
Cracking shot. Length ball, outside off and Pandya muscles it through covers for a boundary. GT: 60/2 after 10.3 overs.
This shot would ease off some pressure. Prasidh Krishna bowls on the fuller side and Hardik smashes it over mid-off. GT: 43/2 after 8.3 overs.
In the air, Hetmyer rushes after it but fails to get the hold of it. Wrong’un from Chahal, Gill’s mistimed hit goes high in the air. There was a chance for RR but now it’s gone. 1 run off the delivery, but a good over from Chahal; 3 from it. GT: 38/2 after 8 overs.
Chahal bowls it too full and Gill punishes with a slog sweep. Hits it hard and beats the square leg fielder. GT:31/2 after 6 overs.
Matthew Wade departs and it’s a big blow to Gujarat Titans. Boult bowls a fuller one on the pads, Wade flicks but holes it out to Riyan Parag at short mid-wicket. GT: 23/2 after 4.3 overs.
Matthew Wade launches one in to the stands and even Akshay Kumar couldn’t resist cheering for the shot. Length ball, Wad moves towards the off stump and smashed it over backward square leg. GT: 22/1 after 3.4 overs
A maiden over in an IPL final is not usual but Trent Boult does it. He just bowled a maiden over to release some pressure off his team. GT: 11/1 after 3 overs.
What a delivery!!! Seam-up, angling in, moving further in to foil Saha’s defence. Middle-stump goes cart-wheeling and Rajasthan strike early in the game. GT: 9/1 after 2 overs.
Saha gets his first boundary. Back of a length delivery, the GT opener pulls itover mid-wicket on his back foot, riding the bounce. GT: 9/0 after 1.2 overs.
A slight indied edge from Shubman Gill, ballooned to Yuzvendra Chahal but the latter drops it. The ball just popped out of his hands and Gill gets a life. GT: 1/0 after 0.4 over.
After some magnificent light show, out walk the GT openers Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha out walk at the Motera Stadium. Trent Boult opens RR’s bowling attack.
Mohammed Shami finishes it off in style with a toe-crushing yorker which outfoxed Riyan Parag on the final ball of the innings. Excellent final over from the premier Indian pacer as he gave just 7 runs off it. It was a clinical performance from the Gujarat Titans bowlers, especially their skipper Hardik Pandya who claimed three big wickets to put Rajasthan Royals on the mat. Jos Buttler was the highest run-getter for Rajasthan once again but this time it was not big enough – 39 runs. RR 130/9 in 20 overs
A very fine penultimate over from Yash Dayal as only three runs came off it. Riyan Parag struggled to break the shackles as the left-arm seamer was right on the money to stop him. The pressure will be on Parag to collect big runs in the last over. RR 123/7 in 19 overs
