“Matches like these will make you realize…”, Twitter reacts as KL Rahul and co failed to chase 136 runs against Gujarat Titans

It was a brilliant game on Saturday in IPL 2023. Defending champions Gujarat Titans defended 135 runs to get back to winning ways. They were in a losing position at one point in the game. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as KL Rahul and co failed to chase 136 runs against Gujarat Titans in the GT vs LSG game on Saturday.

KL Rahul and LSG failed to score 136 against Gujarat Titans

Batting first, GT could just score 135 runs. Although Hardik Pandya and Wriddhiman Saha had a good game, the others could not step up. At the end of the first inning, it felt as though LSG would run away with the game. The first over of the chase was a maiden but after that, KL Rahul and Kyle Mayers took control of the game. They scored a lot of boundaries and within the powerplay, it appeared as if LSG would win the match with a few overs to spare. However, that was not to be.

The likes of Jayant Yadav, Noor Ahmed and Mohit Sharma were in top form for GT. They had the support of the pitch and the brilliant captaincy by Hardik Pandya ensured that the pressure was always on LSG. The LSG batters also could not score boundaries and hence, they were in an uncomfortable situation. In the end, the GT pacers were on top and the likes of KL Rahul and Ayush Badoni could not score well and hence, they lost the game.
