Shubman Gill and Mohit Sharma produced the big performances, while Rashid Khan, Wriddhiman Saha made some crucial contributions as well.
Not to forget, in the most nervy moment possible, ice-man Rahul Tewatia scooped the troubles far away to give Gujarat a third win in four matches.

With every passing match, there’s a new Gujarat raising his hand and making his presence felt, strengthening the side furthermore. This is the kind of confidence a team would aspire for heading into a clash against an in-form.

Alzarri Joseph makes his ball do the talking and is off to a terrific start. Joseph, who picked up seven wickets last season, has snared as many in four matches this season at a great economy of 7.56.
Most importantly, Joseph is providing the big breakthroughs every time – getting rid of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ravindra Jadeja vs CSK, David Warner vs DC, Nitish Rana and Venkatesh Iyer vs KKR.
Gujarat Captain Hardik Pandya needs 16 runs to complete 2,000 IPL runs.
Joseph needs one more wicket to complete 100 wickets in T20s.
