Gujarat Titans opener Shubman Gill yet again rose to the occasion with a magnificent half-century on Tuesday night. Batting against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the MCA Stadium in Pune, the 22-year-old batter smashed a 41-ball half-century to his team at a comfortable spot. It was also his 2nd consecutive fifty and fourth over in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.

After opting to bat first, the titans went off to a troubled start. They lost a couple of wickets – Wriddhiman Saha (5) and Matthew Wade (10) in the powerplay. Skipper Hardik Pandya arrived at the crease but could not provide the required boost to the innings that progressed very slow. (IPL 2022 LSG vs GT Live Score)
