Majestic Shubman Gill’s ton propels Gujarat Titans past Mumba Indians and into the championship game in IPL 2023

Holders Gujarat Titans defeated Mumbai Indians to get to the Indian Premier League final on Shubman Gill’s incredible 129-point performance from just 60 balls.

The Gujarat opener dismantled the Mumbai attack with seven fours and ten sixes after being dropped on 30.

The Titans scored 233-3, his third century in four innings, before Mumbai collapsed to 171, with Mohit Sharma bagging 5-10.

Gujarat will now take on Chennai Super Kings in the Ahmedabad championship game on Sunday.

Is Indian cricketer Gill the sport’s upcoming superstar?
Mumbai pays for Gill Masterclass
Gujarat were given the assignment to bat first as rain pushed back the start of Qualifier 2 by 30 minutes.

Even if there were foreshadowings of the impeccable timing that would come, Gill ought to have left in the powerplay’s final over.

Tim David got both hands on the ball after jumping forward from mid-on but was unable to hold it as England seamer Chris Jordan forced an error.

After 99 runs, David did take the catch to get rid of Gill.

The 23-year-old was dominant and scored 50 runs off of only 32 balls, but that was just the beginning.

Gill put on a striking exhibition that was both graceful and explosive, needing just 17 balls to move from 50 to 100.

Piyush Chawla hit the ropes twice more in the following over after dispatching Akash Madhwal with three sixes in one over. Gill defeated Cameron Green after reaching three figures.

The Indian hitter joins Virat Kohli and Jos Buttler, who each scored four hundreds in the IPL in 2016 and 2022, as the only other players to accomplish the feat.

There was no relief for Mumbai even after Gill was out in the 17th over as Titans captain Hardik Pandya entered the game and maintained the assault.

Mumbai pursuit loses momentum
Within the first three overs of the reply, Mumbai’s openers Rohit Sharma and Nehal Wadhera were out, while Green was forced to retire hurt after being struck by a Pandya bumper on the elbow.

The five-time champions had previously had to replace Ishan Kishan because of a concussion sustained in an unintentional collision with teammate Jordan, but they were still able to stay in the game thanks to Tilak Varma’s powerful hitting.

The left-hander’s 14-ball innings ended with him being castled by Rashid Khan after smashing five fours and three sixes.

With Suryakumar Yadav at his side, Green was able to return and put up 52, making Gujarat’s victory far from certain.

However, the Irish left-armer Josh Little dismissed Green, and Yadav was dismissed by Mohit shortly after reaching his half-century off just 33 balls, putting an end to Mumbai’s charge.

Gujarat, playing in just their second IPL season, was sent back to the championship game as Mohit ripped through the bottom order to secure career-best T20 numbers.
