Livingstone failed to get going in his first few IPL matches, but the right-handed batter has returned to form in the tournament with back-to-back half-centuries. He was adjudged the Man of the Match for his excellent performance against the Chennai Super Kings, and now against the Gujarat Titans, he scored 64 runs from 27 deliveries.

Rashid Khan dismissed him, while debutant Darshan Nalkande was also impressive for the Gujarat Titans as he scalped two wickets in two balls on his debut. Speaking to the host broadcasters after the first innings, Nalkande said:

“There were nerves but Ashish sir and Hardik bhai gave me confidence before the game. It feels good to have got this opportunity after many years – looking forward to contribute to the team. Whatever Hardik bhai was telling me, I was trying to execute the same. The wicket is playing really well for batting.”
