Gills unbeaten century helmed Gujarat Titans victory against Royal Challengers Bangalore by six wickets to end the home team’s campaign in the Indian Premier League in Bengaluru on Sunday. The result paved the way for Mumbai Indians’ entry into the playoffs as the fourth team.
Virat Kohli surpassed Chris Gayle with his second successive century powering Royal Challengers Bangalore to a challenging 197 for five against Gujarat Titans here on Sunday. This is his seventh IPL hundred and he has now surpassed Chris Gayle as the batter with highest number of tournament tons.
The match began with a flurry of boundaries against Mohammed Shami (1/39 in 4 overs) and the already distraught Yash Dayal in the powerplay. They were dispatched for as many as nine boundaries which prompted Hardik Pandya to quickly press his main weapon, Rashid Khan (1/24 in 4 overs), into action to stem the flow of runs.
Earlier in the day, Cameron Green’s maiden IPL century helped Mumbai Indians (MI) to clinch a thumping 8-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. With this win the Rohit Sharma led side moved to the fourth spot keeping hopes for the IPL alive.
Green became the sixth Mumbai Indians batter to hit an IPL century and the third overseas player to do so for the 5-time champions. He scored the highest for MI with 100 off 47 while captain Rohit Sharma played a stunning knock of 56 off 37 deliveries.
