After losing a nail-biting affair in Delhi, Gujarat Titans (GT) skipper Shubman Gill lamented the extra runs conceded in the last few overs of the first innings and emphasized the importance of executing plans meticulously, especially in small grounds like the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.

In Match 40 of the IPL 2024 season, Delhi Capitals (DC) clinched a narrow victory over Gujarat Titans on Wednesday. Despite the efforts of Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, and Rashid Khan to thwart the hosts and prevent a double defeat, GT fell short by four runs.

Rishabh Pant's remarkable innings of 88 runs from 43 balls, supported by Axar Patel's contribution of 66 runs off 43 balls, and Tristan Stubbs's late blitz of 26 runs from 7 balls, propelled DC's total well beyond the 200-run mark. Although challenging, it proved sufficient to secure the two points.

Gill disappointed with bowlers

Reflecting on the match, Gill analyzed his team's loss and identified the areas where the Titans faltered.

"At one stage, we thought we would be able to restrict them to 200-210, but we gave away some extra runs in the last 2-3 overs. But this is a smallish ground, we spoke about the same when we went out to chase. Execution becomes very important, if there's a set batter or a finisher, you'll have to execute well. It's okay if there's something in the wicket, but on pitches like this, you'll have to make sure that you execute all your plans perfectly, be it the yorkers or the variations,"  said Shubman Gill after the match.

Scoringh 22 runs in the 19th over and 31 in the final over propelled DC to a total that seemed out of reach just a few overs earlier. 

Despite GT scoring at 14.6 runs per over in the last five overs, they fell short, underscoring the significance of DC's strong finish with the bat.
