Tewatia hit Odean Smith for 2 sixes off last two balls to win the match for GT vs PBKS | IPL-BCCIGujarat Titans (GT) all-rounder Rahul Tewatia thanked his partner David Miller for taking a single in the crucial chase against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) last night (April 8) in the IPL 2022, which enabled him to win the match for the Hardik Pandya-led team.

Chasing 190 to win the match, Gujarat Titans needed 19 runs in the last over after Shubman Gill’s 96 had taken them close to the target. Odean Smith bowled the last overdid well initially to take the equation to 13 runs off three balls.

David Miller hit the short ball from Smith back to him and Tewatia wanted the single to come on strike for the last two balls of the over. Smith aimed at the bowling end stumps to run out Tewatia and missed the mark, allowing the batters to complete the single.
