How Miller got GT over the line

Miller, averaging over 56 runs in the second inning since IPL 2021, contributed to a 64-run partnership with Sudharsan off 42 balls. With 24 runs in a single over off Mayank Markande, Miller struck two fours and a six, bringing the game to 25 off four overs. Despite being dismissed Sudarshan by Cummins in the 17th over, Miller hit a couple of fours and Vijay Shankar added two fours off Jaydev Unadkat. Despite only six runs in the 19th over, Miller finished the game with a six off Unadkat.

How did SRH begin?

SRH started strong with Travis Head and Mayank Agarwal striking five fours. However, Agarwal was dismissed playing the pull shot for the third time in as many innings, with Azmatullah Omarzai providing the breakthrough. Abhishek Sharma continued his good form, striking 2 sixes off Rashid Khan, helping SRH reach 56/1 at the end of the powerplay.

Why were they slowing down?

GT capitalized on slower pitches by using spinners and pace changes. Noor Ahmad and Rashid Khan bowled for 19 runs, while Abhishek ended a boundary drought with a DRS. Mohit Sharma’s change of pace ended Abhishek’s innings. Heinrich Klaasen attempted to provide momentum, but was bowled by Rashid, and Markram fell to Umesh Yadav. Abdul Samad ended the 15th over with two fours, bringing SRH to 122/5.

Samad shines, but GT limits SRH

Darshan Nalkande, in his first game of the season, bowled an economical 16th over, allowing only 6 runs. Samad scored a straight four off Rashid’s last ball, followed by a six off Mohit. Mohit contributed to the perfect finish, with only three runs from the final over.

The beginning of the chase

Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill led SRH to a strong start, hitting two fours and sixes. Gill sent one over extra cover for his first six, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar got a four off Sudharsan as GT finished with 52/1 in the powerplay, thanks to their efforts.

SRH spinners apply the brakes

Markande and Washington Sundar bowled simultaneously, cutting out boundaries before Gill scored one off Washington. Markande seized the skipper’s big wicket, leaving GT at 78/2. Cummins, the SRH captain, took over in the 11th over and conceded only 5 runs. Sudharsan broke the shackles with a four and an excellent shot. Bhuvneshwar conceded only six runs in the 15th over, but Miller handled it well.

Brief scores

Sunrisers Hyderabad lost by 7 wickets to Gujarat Titans 168/3 in 19.1 overs (Sai Sudharsan 45, David Miller 44; Pat Cummins 1-28) after scoring 162/8 in 20 overs (Abdul Samad 29, Abhishek Sharma 29; Mohit Sharma 3-25).
