Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan delivered a batting masterclass against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), propelling Gujarat Titans (GT) to a commanding 231/3. Their explosive 210-run partnership showcased absolute dominance, with Gill's aggressive 103 and Sudharsan's equally impressive 104 leaving CSK's spinners, especially Ravindra Jadeja, struggling. Gill's half-century, sealed with a towering six, preceded Sudharsan's century, marked by a boundary past square leg, highlighting their remarkable performance.

In CSK's chase, David Miller's direct hit initiated Rachin Ravindra's run-out, setting the tone early. Sandeep Warrier and Rashid Khan's early breakthroughs left CSK reeling at 10/3. Daryl Mitchell's aggressive 63 and Moeen Ali's quickfire 56 provided hope, but crucial wickets from Mohit Sharma shifted momentum back to GT. Despite a thrilling cameo from MS Dhoni, CSK fell short.
