After losing the match against the Punjab Kings, Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya said on Tuesday that he had won the draw and decided the racket to face tough conditions.

After deciding to bat first, the Gujarat state team could only manage 143 rounds for eight wickets. Punjab scored a victory by losing two wickets in 16 overs. So Shekhar Dhawan scored 62 unbeaten, Bhanuka Rajapaksa 40 and Liam Livingston scored 30 unbeaten.

“We wanted to test our team in a difficult situation. So I decided to hit first. I knew a new ball could do the trick, but if you keep losing a wicket, you will be under pressure.
Punjab captain Mayank Agarwal said his team would like to continue the momentum and win matches on a regular basis. He said: “Kajesu Rabada was throwing the ball well so we had a small goal in front of us. After that there was a good partnership between Shekhar and Rajapaksa.
