Barring Buttler (39) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (22), no other batter managed to score above 20 as the Royals posted a meagre score of 130 in the first innings.

Pace bowlers Prasidh Krishna and Trent Boult gave them hopes with early wickets of Wriddhiman Saha and Matthew Wade in the powerplay.

Titans skipper Hardik and opener Shubman Gill put a calm and clinical 63-run stand for the third wicket to overcome the threat imposed by the Royals at the halfway mark.

Ashwin, who was held by Samson to bowl the left-handers later in the innings, came to bowl in the 12th over.

Hardik decided to open his hands against the off-spinner with a four and a six in successive balls as Ashwin conceded 15 runs in his first over.

Yuzvendra Chahal dismissed Hardik on 34 to end the partnership between him and Gill. David Miller just continued from where Hardik had left.

Miller whacked Ashwin for a six over mid-wicket before hammering Prasidh for a couple of boundaries.

Gill hit the winning shot – a six off Obed McCoy over square leg- to finish the game with 11 balls to spare and etched Gujarat Titans’ name on the studded IPL trophy.
