Faf du Plessis won the toss and elected to bat first. While batting first RCB put on 170 runs on the board on the back of two half-centuries from Virat Kohli and Rajat Patidar. It was Kohli’s first fifty of the season. Some late order hitting by Mahipal Lamror took RCB to 170 which was just about par in an afternoon game.

The best bowler for GT was Pradeep Sangwan who was making a comeback to the tournament after 4 seasons. He picked up 2 wickets for 18 runs.

Gujarat Titans chased down the target in the final over with ease in the end, but their innings saw a couple of hiccups in between as after a relatively good start they lost key wickets at regular intervals. But a brilliant partnership between Rahul Tewatia and David Miller took GT home. Tewatia was awarded the player of the match for his 43 not out of 25 balls.

Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma got together to put up a brilliant partnership in the middle but then Yadav and Varma both got out when MI needed just 37 runs. But a fine cameo by Tim David took MI over the line for the first time in IPL 2022.
