Mullanpur, Apr 21 (UNI) In a high-octane clash at the Maharaj Yadvindra Singh International Cricket Stadium, Rahul Tewatia's blistering unbeaten innings of 36 runs off just 18 balls propelled Gujarat Titans to a thrilling victory over Punjab Kings in the 37th match of IPL 2024 here on Sunday.

However, captain Shubman Gill and Sai Sudarshan steadied the innings with their crucial contributions. Gill scored 35 runs off 29 balls, including five fours, while Sai Sudarshan chipped in with 31 runs, hitting three fours.
Earlier in the match, Punjab, electing to bat first after winning the toss, managed to post a total of 142 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in their allotted 20 overs.
