Shubman Gill Words on defeat against Delhi Capitals- IPL 2024 GT vs DC

The Gujarat Titans skipper Shubman Gill has opened on the side’s defeat against Delhi Capitals in the 32nd match of the IPL 2024 schedule played at Ahmedabad Stadium.

Delhi Capitals won the match after chasing 89 runs and secured 6th position in the IPL 2024 points table. While Speaking at the post-match conference Shubman Gill said, “Our batting was very average, and it is important to move on and come back strong. The wicket was alright, if you see some of the dismissals, it had nothing to do with the pitch.”

“Poor shot selection I would say. When the opposition is chasing 89, unless someone takes a double hat-trick, the opposition will always be in the game. This is just the halfway mark of the season for us, we have won 3 and hopefully, we win another 5-6 from the next 7 like in the last couple of years,” concluded Shubman Gill.

Coming to the match, Delhi Capitals won the toss and opted to bowl, where their plot worked as per the plan making Gujarat all-out for 89 runs.

Gujarat Titans scored only 30 runs by the fall of the fourth wicket. Tristan Stubbs sent out Abhinav Manohar who scored 8 runs on the 9th over.
