Gujarat captain’s reaction on winning the match:

Gill, speaking in the post-match presentation, expressed his admiration for Rashid Khan’s competitiveness, stating, “I would have loved to finish the game but very happy with the way Rashid bhai and Rahul bhai finished the game. Last game also, we dominated more than 50 percent but our bad phases were very bad. He (Rashid) is such a fantastic player, someone you always want in your team. When GT is playing, do not think that (ruling the team out of the game).”

Reflecting on the team’s strategy, Gill revealed, “We were targeting 45 in three overs and that is very much gettable, and that was the mindset. Mathematically, it is like both batters need to score 9-ball 22 runs or so and if one of the batters goes berserk, it will get over two-three balls prior”.

However, it was Gill’s reply when commentator Harsha Bhogle mentioned that it felt GT had left it too late to push for a win, and the youngster came up with an epic response.

Bhogle asked, “Well done you got 2 points today. But I must admit some of us thought you left it too late but well done today.” Gill replied, “Thank you, when GT is playing don’t think like that, eh”.
