Rishi Dhawan produces a moment of brilliance to run Shubman Gill out
Gujarat Titans’ skipper Hardik Pandya won the toss and elected to bat first. Both openers Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha made a breezy start to their respective innings and added 17 runs in the first two overs.
However, on the very first delivery of the 3rd over, Shubman Gill got run out after a poor call to steal a quick single. Shubman Gill knocked a full delivery from Sandeep Sharma to covers and set off for a quick single.
However, Rishi Dhawan was quick to pounce on the ball, and the all-rounder hit the bull’s eye with a direct hit. Dhawan had only one stump to aim, but he did not miss sending Gill back to the dugout.
