GG vs MT: Gujarat Giants registered their second consecutive win on Monday after crushing Manipal Tigers to go top of the table. Virender Sehwag and company chased down a paltry 120-run total in 17.2 overs to win the game by 2 wickets.

After Shukla got run-out in the third over, wickets kept falling in short intervals as Manipal Tigers failed to build any momentum. R Emrit sent Asnodkar (5) in the 5th over and Dinda then accounted for the wickets of T Taibu (1) and M Kaif (24) to leave the team in trouble at 77 for 4.

R Shukla and Sahu looked like building a partnership but the latter got run out in the 15th over. R Shukla top-scored with 32 off 32 but it was never going to be enough. In the end, they managed only 120 runs at the end of the first innings.

T Dilshan also returned with two wickets for 18 runs in 2 overs. In pursuit of the run-chase, Gujarat Giants did find it difficult to chase it down but reached home in the end. Sehwag, once again, got out early but Kevin O’Brien made handy 23 runs in 19 balls.

Giants make a flamboyant comeback

Gujarat had lost 3 wickets for 45 runs in 5.1 overs and needed a partnership to get back in the game. Kevin O’Brien added 21 runs with Simmons but the former couldn’t replicate the knock he played in the last match.

Harbhajan Singh then accounted for the wickets of Simmons (12) and Perera (22) but there weren’t enough runs on the board. It was Parthiv Patel’s terrific 34 (17) that helped the Giants glide towards victory, winning him the Player of the Match title.

Manipal Tigers managed to pick 8 wickets but couldn’t win the game in the end. Manipal Tigers have now both the games played so far and need to come back stronger.
