IPL 2023: Four playoff playing teams have been found in IPL 2023. Gujarat defeated Bengaluru in the match played on Sunday night. With this defeat, once again Virat Kohli’s dream of winning the IPL trophy was shattered. Had RCB won, it would have qualified for the playoffs. Opener Shubman Gill was the diamond of this victory of the defending champion. He hit his second century of this season. Gill completed the century in 52 balls, hitting a six on the first ball of the 20th over.
i am in good form
Talking after the match, Shubman Gill said that I am in good form. It is a matter of starting and then converting it into bigger form. I was missing those big matches in the first half of the IPL. I was getting a lot of 40s and 50s. But big innings were not coming. You need to keep playing shots in T20 cricket.
It will be exciting to play against Chennai in Chennai
Gill said- The new ball was getting a bit stuck, but after that it became easy to bat. The ball was getting wet, it was becoming difficult for their spinners to bowl. When Shankar came in he was trying to hit very hard, I told him to keep his shape and try to time it. He can hit the ball very far. He said that playing against Chennai in Chennai is going to be exciting. We have a great bowling attack especially for that wicket and hopefully we will make it to the final for the second one.
Virat’s innings went in vain
Batting first, Royal Challengers Bangalore scored 197 runs for five wickets after losing the toss. Virat Kohli played an inning of 101 runs in 61 balls. But he did not get support from the other side. Gujarat achieved the target of 198 runs for 4 wickets in 19.1 overs.
