Star Gujarat Titans (GT) opening batsman Shubman Gill got run out in Qualifier 1 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Tuesday, May 24.
The young opening batsman was batting brilliantly after losing his partner, Wriddhiman Saha, for a duck in the first over. Gill looked comfortable out in middle and smashed some beautiful looking boundaries to off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.
However, he got run out on the 4th ball of the 8th over after getting involved in a horrible mix-up with Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade. Gill’s innings ended at 35 runs of 21 balls, including 5 fours and 1 six.
Notably, Ravichandran Ashwin bowled a carrom ball to Gill and the GT opener played it towards the midwicket region. He completed the first run easily and went for the second run.
However, Wade backed out at the striker’s end and Gill was halfway down the track. Gill was in no position to reach back to the non-striker’s end and the Rajasthan Royals fielders Devdutt Padikkal and Shimron Hetmyer did the rest of the job.
This was the eighth run out for Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League 2022, which is the second-most this season after Mumbai Indians’ 13 run-outs.
