“Unpropitious Signs…”: Aakash Chopra Finds Chink In Hardik Pandya-Drove Gujarat Titans’ Armor In IPL 2022

The Hardik Pandya-drove Gujarat Titans lost to Punjab Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 on Tuesday

The Hardik Pandya-drove Gujarat Titans (GT) tasted their second misfortune in the Indian Premier League 2022 on Tuesday as they went down to Punjab Kings by eight wickets. Regardless of the misfortune, the new establishment, playing its lady IPL season, are solidly in top of the 10-group table with 16 focuses from 10 games (eight successes and two misfortunes). Nonetheless, they have looked defenseless of late, particularly in the batting division. Previous Indian cricket crew player Aakash Chopra felt that GT needs to try harder as the race for a spot in the end of the season games warms up.

“Gujarat, they have clear defects. You realize that their batting is somewhat light. You will get tried now and again. At least a time or two in some time it’s getting tried at this point. It’s simply that they tracked down new legends, eight games and eight different man of the matches. That is alright, yet assuming you bat first and score just 140, you won’t dominate a match. Multiple times out of 10 you won’t dominate a match. Every so often you will, however this evening was not that evening. GT were expected for an awful game. It came along these lines,” Chopra told ESPNCricinfo in a video.

“However, the justification for stress, as I would like to think, is that will be that Hardik and Shubman bombing together. It has happened not what (on) three or four events. That is inauspicious signs. You might have still escaped prison a couple of times, helped by David Miller and Tewatia however working constantly is not going.”

While Gill was out for just 9 (6b), GT commander Pandya scored only 1 off seven balls. Gujarat Titans were confined to 143 for eight by Punjab Kings after they selected to bat. Sai Sudharsan top-scored for the Titans with an unbeaten 65 off 50 balls. In answer, Punjab Kings finished the pursuit with 24 balls in excess with opener Shikhar Dhawan making 62 off 53 balls.

Among PBKS bowlers, pace initiate Kagiso Rabada got done with magnificent figures of 4/33 of every four overs. Sandeep Sharma yielded just 17 runs in his four overs, while Rishi Dhawan packed away a wicket for 26 runs in his full standard of four overs at the D Y Patil Stadium.
