Pant produced a mature and explosive innings of 88 not out off just 43 balls, including five boundaries and eight towering sixes. His performance served as a timely reminder to the national selectors ahead of India’s highly anticipated T20 World Cup squad announcement, too.

In response, Gujarat Titans’ Sai Sudarshan and David Miller put up a valiant fight with impressive half-centuries but fell short despite a late surge from Rashid Khan. Sudarshan’s explosive 65 off 29 balls and Miller’s quickfire 55 off 23 provided hope for Gujarat, but the mounting required run rate proved to be their downfall.

Despite Rashid Khan’s heroic cameo in the final overs, Gujarat Titans ultimately fell short by a narrow margin of four runs, with Delhi Capitals’ Mukesh Kumar holding his nerve in the tense final over.
