Gujarat Titans registered its third victory of IPL 2024 when they defeated a strong Rajasthan Royals team at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. The Titans were the underdogs coming into this game. They had lost their previous two matches and needed to win this match desperately.

For most part of the match, Gujarat were trailing as Rajasthan showed why they had been so invincible. When the Titans required 73 runs from the last 30 balls, it seemed like the match had gone out of their hands. Two balls later, when their captain Shubman Gill was dismissed, the task seemed even tougher. But they showed why they are regarded as such a good chasing team.

Titans fought till the last ball and snatched the victory from the grasp of the home team. Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, and Shahrukh Khan played important cameos in the end. Tewatia, who is playing as a specialist finisher deserves praise as he has done his job in a commendable manner over the last two seasons.

Rahul Tewatia usually comes out to bat in the final overs of the innings and gets few balls to make an impression. But over the years, he has batted with intelligence and calmness rather than trying to hit the ball too hard. In this match, he left-hander scored 22 runs off 11 balls and stitched an important 38-run partnership for the seventh wicket with Rashid Khan.

Before being signed by Titans, Tewatia used to play for Rajasthan Royals and did a great job with them as well.
