Gujarat is going well in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament with three wins from the three matches they played thus far. They sneaked in a 13-run win against Meghalaya and registered a huge 70-run victory over Himachal Pradesh. The game against Rajasthan witnessed comedy of errors from both the teams. The game ended in a Tie with Gujarat failing to score five runs from the last eight balls.
In the Super Over, Gujarat scored only four runs but later conceded only four runs to win the game by virtue of hitting more boundaries. They will be now up against the Tamil Nadu team on Monday in their 4th game. The Ravichandran Ashwin-led team suffered a 53-run defeat to Rajasthan but bounced back with a 6-wicket win against Bihar on Sunday.
