With two runs needed off the last ball, Rashid Khan finished the game with a boundary to hand Gujarat Titans a three-wicket win against Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium. 

The chase of 197 was set up by captain Shubman Gill, who looked in divine touch, scoring 72 off 44 deliveries.

Sanju Samson and Riyan Parag carried out a recovery act with superb fifties after RR lost openers Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal within the PowerPlay. 

The duo’s gritty stand propelled Rajasthan to 196 for three in 20 overs. Earlier, GT captain Shubman Gill won the toss and opted to bowl against Sanju Samson’s RR in Jaipur.

Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan, who lost their first game of the tournament on Wednesday, had walked into the game looking flawless in all four of their games. 

Both in the bowling and batting departments, different players have stepped up and chipped in on different occasions. 

The only cause of concern for the hosts is the form of Yashasvi Jaiswal who after having a splendid Test series against England is going through a bit of a lean patch.
