“It’s my fourth year. I wanted to be there until the end and that was the discussion with the coaches. I’m glad I took them to the line,” Shubman Gill said.


Gujarat Titans bowlers took advantage of local conditions in Ahmedabad to limit them to 130/9 in 20 overs. Skipper Hardik Pandya bagged three wickets and R Sai Kishore took two wickets for GT.


“Our bowlers played really well to keep them down to 130. We wanted to keep them under 150 but luckily it was a lot less,” Gill said.
Playing on their home turf, the Gujarat Titans made the most of the conditions and became the IPL 2022 Champions.
