Shubman Gill was seen having a word with Sandeep Sharma as he walked off after being dismissed for 9 runs in the GT vs PBKS match.
Shubman Gill fell early in Gujarat Titans’ defeat against Punjab Kings at the DY Patil Stadium on Tuesday as he was run out courtesy a brilliant direct hit by Rishi Dhawan. However, he reacted in anger at the bowler, Sandeep Sharma, after he bumped into the pacer while trying to take a quick single. He was seen having a word with Sharma as well as he walked off after being dismissed for 9 runs. Gill hit the ball to cover and took off for a quick single, but Dhawan’s accurate throw meant he was caught well short of the crease, especially after the collision slowed him down.
It was a crucial early strike for PBKS, with Gill having hit a brilliant 96 in their last encounter.
The 20-year-old hit five boundaries and a six as he scored his maiden IPL half-century.
The target proved to be too little to be a challenge for Punjab Kings as they chased it down with four overs and eight wickets to spare.
Shikhar Dhawan hit a fine fifty, finishing unbeaten on 62 off 53 with eight boundaries and a six.
He was given ample support by Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who hit 40 off 28 and then Liam Livingstone, who smashed an unbeaten 30 off 10, including a 28-run over off Mohammed Shami that finished the game off.
