Gujarat Titans opener Shubman Gill was annoyed with Punjab Kings pacer Sandeep Sharma after getting run-out by a sharp Rishi Dhawan throw in match 48 of the IPL 2022 at Mumbai’s Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy on Tuesday.
The incident happened in the third over of the match when Shubman Gill tapped the ball towards short extra cover and scampered across to the other end. Rishi Dhawan collected the ball and hit it directly at the stumps at the non-striker’s end. Gill was nowhere near and he had to walk back.

After getting out, Gill turned and stared at the bowler. He was upset as he thought Sandeep had got in his way from him, and he had to run around him, but Sandeep did n’t move at all in his follow-through, he was just standing his ground, so he was not at fault. It was a poor call for the single. He knocked this full ball to cover, and then just set off.
Shubman Gill is run out for 9 runs.#GT lose their first.

Earlier, Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya won the toss against Punjab Kings and chose to bat first here at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. Gujarat Titans are at the top of the points table with 16 points, having won their last five games. In their last game, they won by six wickets against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. On the other hand, Punjab Kings are at the eighth position in the points table with eight points, having registered only two wins in their last five games. The side had registered a 20-run defeat against Lucknow Super Giants in their last game.
GT captain Hardik Pandya said during the toss, “Going to bat first, do not think dew will play a big role. Have to always stay on top of our games, can not be complacent. A lot of things have gone our way, but it could have gone the other way as well. I’m quite close to bowling now, but given our standing in the table, do not want to rush myself.” Punjab Kings captain Mayank Agarwal said during the toss, “Wanted to bowl first. Have lost 8 tosses out of 10. We are playing good, aggressive cricket. Just that we haven’t seen key moments.
