The Hardik Pandya-led side secured a spot in the finals, while Rajasthan have to now play the second Qualifier.

Sai Kishore got Samson’s wicket in the 10th over for a team score of 79. Devdutt Padikkal then chipped in for quick 28 runs to keep the run rate high.

They maintained the run rate, and the equation came down to 43 runs in the final four overs. The duo then scored 20 runs in the next two overs. In the 19th over, Obed McCoy bowled brilliantly, conceding only seven runs. Gujarat required 16 runs in the last over. Miller kept his nerve and showed why he is rated so highly.
