What I enjoyed most was seeing Shubman use his technique: Parthiv

NEW DELHI: Gujarat Titans became the first team to enter the playoffs of the IPL 2023. They entered the playoffs after a magnificent 34-run victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Monday. The win took the Titans to 18 points in 13 games. They are now assured of a top-two finish while SRH were stranded at 8 points from 12 games and joined Delhi Capitals in bowing out of the tournament. Former India wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel is impressed with the batting technique of Shubman Gill, who played a match-winning century knock.
Gill scored 101 off 58 balls and his 147-run partnership with Sai Sudharsan (47 runs) for the second wicket helped Titans put up a stiff 188/9.

In reply, SRH were reduced to 59/7 in 9 overs before they pulled things back slightly and finished at 154/9 in their allotted 20 overs.
Paceman Mohammed Shami ran through the SRH top order, taking 4/21 while medium pacer Mohit Sharma finished with 4/28 in a brilliant bowling display.

“What I enjoyed most was seeing him use his technique. All the shots that we saw, had him let the ball come to him. He didn’t try and whack it and it allowed him to successfully find the gaps. When you play on a bouncy pitch, you have to let the ball come to you. That’s how you control the ball and hit where it needs to go. When he was set, he was able to get a century. He has hit centuries in T20, ODI, and Test cricket at this ground,” said JioCinema IPL expert Parthiv Patel about Gill.
