Gujarat Titans, captained by Hardik Pandya, have surpassed MS Dhoni led-Chennai Super Kings’ record of five victories in 2018 to become the leading team in the Indian Premier League for most last over wins while chasing in a season.
Titans defeated Super Kings with just one run remaining from six balls, thanks to a stunning boundary by Wriddhiman Saha, marking their sixth last over winning match while chasing in the IPL 2022.
Despite a good half-century by Ruturaj Gaikwad, the GT bowlers put up a precise performance to limit CSK to a below-par 133/5 in their 62nd game of the ongoing season on Sunday.
The one piece of good news for the Super Kings, who are already out of the IPL Playoff race, was Matheesha Pathirana’s excellent bowling.
Gujarat was the first team to be qualified for the playoffs and now ended in the top two to increase their chances of making it to the finals.
