Gujarat stroll home despite early hiccup
Gujarat Lions crushed Royal Challengers Bangalore with a 7-wicket win in the 31st match of the IPL.
Put into bat first, fresh from the drubbing against KKR, RCB crumbled to 5/60 with first 10 overs. Kedar Jadhav and Pawan Negi’s 30s dragged RCB to 134. For Gujarat Lions, Andrew Tye continued his to shine with another 3-wicket haul finishing his spell with 3/12.
Despite claiming Gujarat’s openers early in the innings, RCB could not handle Aaron Finch’s onslaught as he stuck 72 off just 34 balls. Suresh Raina played the anchor and ensured his team reached home without much fuss. Raina finished with 34* off 30 balls. Badree claimed 2/29 in 3 overs for RCB.
