IPL: Entire Gujarat Titans team penalized, Shubman Gill gets biggest fine

Gujarat Titans skipper Shubman Gill is in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons as he faces a hefty fine of Rs 24 lakh for the team’s slow overrun during their recent IPL match against the formidable Chennai Super Kings. This is the second such violation for the Titans this season, leading to individual fines for the rest of the squad, including the Impact Player, ranging from Rs 6 lakh or 25% of their respective match fees, whichever is lower.

However, amid this disciplinary setback, Gujarat Titans managed to secure a significant win, overwhelming defending champions CSK by a convincing margin of 35 runs. Gill’s side owed much of their success to his sterling performances alongside B Sai Sudharsan, both of whom had centuries to their names, taking the team to a formidable total of 231 for three. Their stellar batting display effectively suppressed CSK’s chase, restricting them to 196 for eight by the end of the match.

Despite this win, Gujarat Titans are at the eighth position on the IPL points table, with 10 points from 12 matches. CSK, on ​​the other hand, maintains the fourth position with 12 points from an equal number of matches.

Gill’s scintillating knock of 104 off 55 deliveries, combined with Sudharsan’s equally impressive century, forged a mammoth opening partnership of 210 runs, paving the way for Gujarat’s dominant performance. Reflecting on their partnership, Gill expressed his satisfaction with the freedom they enjoyed while batting, highlighting their ability to capitalize on every opportunity.

Gill, however, complained of not getting above 250 runs, citing missed chances in the final overs. Despite their victory, Gill remains mindful of the team’s need to improve their net run rate, a crucial factor in the IPL play-offs race.

Gill’s early departure from the field during CSK’s chase raised concerns, but he assured fans it was only due to cramps, dispelling any concerns about his fitness.

As the IPL season progresses, Gujarat Titans remain determined to make the most of every opportunity, with Gill’s leadership leading the team towards their ultimate goal. With their eyes set on qualifying for the play-offs, the Titans are ready to overcome challenges and emerge as contenders in the fiercely competitive tournament.
