Known to pull off last-over heists, IPL newbie Gujarat Titans got a taste of their own medicine when they were defeated by Mumbai Indians in a last-ball thriller at the Brabourne Stadium on May 6. Chasing the target of 178, Gujarat needed just 9 off the last over. And with Rahul Tewatia and David Miller on the crease, the Gujarat side looked set for yet another last-over win but Daniel Sams had different plans for the night. Sams started well giving just 1 off the first two deliveries and the runout of Tewatia on the third ball suddenly changed the dynamics of the game. Gujarat needed six of the last deliveries, but Miller failed to make a contact with the ball. Sam’s varied his pace and length to almost perfection and did not concede a single boundary in the over. Mumbai won the game by 5 runs, registering its second win in the tournament.
Lucknow Super Giants will come into the contest with a compressive win against Kolkata Knight Riders in their last outing. After setting a target of 177, Lucknow showcased a brilliant bowling performance to bundle KKR up at 101. Barring Andre Russel and Sunil Narine, no other KKR batter could cross the 20-run mark.
