PBKS vs GT IPL 2024: Gujarat Titans (GT) sealed their fourth win of the tournament on April 21 at Mullanpur by beating Punjab Kings (PBKS) by three wickets. After this win, they are in the sixth position on the points table. Gujarat skipper Shubman Gill spoke about the game during the post-match presentation.

“Would have liked to finish it a bit early, but good to get those two points. (Captaincy) It’s been very exciting for me to be able to take up this role. Except for the over-rate, everything has been good,” Gill said.

The Gujarat captain also spoke about a small altercation that he had with Liam Livingstone earlier in the match. The Punjab spinner was seen celebrating animatedly as Gill got out while trying to clear the boundary. 

“When I am out there batting, I just want to play as a batter. I don’t want to think too much about the captaincy. He was trying to rush me there, but the ball that I got out, I would have made that decision even if I was batting as a batsman or even without that little bit that we had,” he added.

Shubman Gill made 35 runs off 29 balls with a strike rate of 120.69. He was the second-highest scorer of the match for GT. However, Rahul Tewatia’s brisk 36 off 18 balls saw Gujarat home.
