Just like the previous matches, the match number 18 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 was also an interesting match where the Gujarat Titans needed their star man Rahul Tewatia to finish off the game in the very last over.
The match number 18 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 was played today between the hosts Punjab Kings and the Gujarat Titans.
Batting first, Punjab Kings scored 153 runs in their 20 overs. Gujarat Titans took the game deep and were all given a major shell shock in the last over.
However, just like the past, Rahul Tewatia came in clutch in the very last over of the match. Requiring 7 of last 6 balls, Sam Curran managed to get the wicket of the danger man Shubman Gill.
The Gujarat batters found it difficult to score big shots against Sam until Rahul Tewatia smashed a boundary against his likely favourite team to score runs and become a hero.
Rahul Tewatia & Punjab – The love story continues!
