Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]- Gujarat Titans faced their fourth defeat in the period losing to Royal Challengers Bangalore by eight wickets here at the Wankhede Stadium. The Hardik Pandya led side stopped working to defend a 169-run target and the skipper really feels that they were 10 runs short in the long run.
” We kind of got it back in the game also yet Maxwell playing the way he played, as well as a couple of possibilities there, we were 10 runs short in the long run,” claimed Gujarat Titans’ captain Hardik Pandya in the post-match presentation ceremony.
Hardik Pandya presented his fast pace bowler Lockie Ferguson in the 13th over , however after bowling, one over was removed the attack and was introduced in the 19th over and acknowledged 21 runs in 1.4 overs.
” We wanted to offer him the possibility a little bit but the wicket was holding a bit where we assumed the ones that could bowl slower balls or take the rate away would certainly be a far better alternative,” said Hardik Pandya.
After scoring 168 runs in 20 overs Gujarat Titans assumed that they had adequate work on the board yet in the end, RCB chased it in 18.4 overs.
