Hardik Pandya Reaction On Gujarat Titans Defeat Against Mumbai Indians GT Vs MI IPL 2022
Hardik Pandya said, ‘Any day we would have easily scored 9 runs in the last over. Today we lost the match due to two run outs. I think we got immersed in the batting. In T20 cricket, you cannot lose two consecutive matches one after the other. We used to win such matches but here we made some mistakes which cost us dearly. We played great cricket for 19.2 overs of our innings.
One or two shots could have changed the outcome of the match. We should not have taken this match till the last over. During this, Hardik also praised his bowlers. He says, ‘Our bowlers did a great job in today’s match. Mumbai’s team was moving towards the score of 200 but our bowlers put pressure on them and dragged them to 170.
Gujarat’s second consecutive defeat
Batting first in this match, Mumbai Indians scored 177 runs thanks to the innings of Ishan Kishan (45), Rohit Sharma (43) and Tim David (44). In reply, Gujarat’s openers Wriddiman Saha (55) and Shubman Gill (52) made a century partnership for the first wicket to put Gujarat ahead on the path of victory. By the 19th over, Gujarat’s victory seemed certain, but due to the strong bowling of Daniel Sams in the last over, Gujarat had to lose the match by 5 runs. This is Gujarat’s second consecutive defeat in this season.
