While batting first GT didn’t have a great start as their opener Wriddhiman Saha departed very early in the innings.

While chasing both the LSG openers started very slowly and cautiously, but they were not able to settle down on the pitch, LSG lost 3 wickets inside the power play and scored just 33 runs during the power play, apart from Deepak Hooda not even a single LSG batsman scored more than 20 runs. Rashid Khan Spell was a game changer for GT as he took 4 wickets in his spell of 3.5 over’s and gave just 24 runs. Rashid took 3 important wickets of Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, and Jason Holder including the wicket of LSG pacer Avesh Khan.
