An extremely rare thing happened in the final over of the match between Gujarat Titans (GT) and SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) as four wickets fell in a span of six deliveries with just two runs coming in the over delivered by Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
With the score being 186 for five, GT had set batter Shubman Gill who scored his maiden IPL century and debutant Dasun Shanaka at the crease as they were expecting to cross the 200-run mark. But Bhuvi as he is known for his death bowling skills, dismissed the centurion Gill on the very first delivery for 101.
In came, the last match's fighter Rashid Khan who was sent back on his initial ball as he edged one to wicket-keeper Heinrich Klaasen for nought.
Two wickets on two deliveries brought Bhuvi on a hattrick which, unfortunately, he couldn't get but they somehow managed to run out of new batter Noor Ahmed to get the team hattrick.
Shanaka was on strike for the fourth delivery and managed a single, giving the strike to his partner Mohd Shami who couldn't survive and hence, the experienced Bhuvneshwar brought his five-wicket haul which also was the fourth scalp of the over.
Final delivery saw one run from byes coming and hence, just two runs of the over which kept the score under 190 despite the fact that at one stage even 220 was looking on the cards.
By the time of writing, SRH were 17 for three after the completion of three overs.
