Rahul Tewatia pulled off an incredible cameo to help his team remain unbeaten in the competition. Like he has been doing in recent years, he won an IPL game for his team when very few expected him to do. In this article, we take a look at how Twitter reacted after Rahul Tewatia wins an unlikely game for his team against Punjab Kings yet again.
Rahul Tewatia wins an unlikely game for his team against Punjab Kings yet again
Gujarat Titans had a mountain to climb in the last over to chase the score of 190. Especially after the likes of Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada bowled well, the new IPL franchise had it difficult in the final over. After Hardik Pandya got out, it almost seemed impossible that the team would win. Gujarat Titans needed 12 runs off the last two balls to win the game. Rahul Tewatia, who had faced one delivery until then, scored two huge hits out of the park to win the game for his franchise.
It is not the first time that Tewatia has done such a thing in IPL. Incidentally, back in IPL 2020, as well, Tewatia had pulled a win out of nowhere for his team against Punjab Kings. He was representing Rajasthan Royals thin. In that game in UAE, Tewatia struck five sixes in an over to get the target within an attainable distance for his team. It was a similar effort against the same opposition on Friday.
Twitter reacts to the sensational finish by the Titans’ all-rounder
Meanwhile, Twitter was amazed by the entertainment that came with the game. Rahul Tewatia changed the course of the match within just two balls and the drama on display was brilliant for the fans to absorb. Hence, there was a lot of attention on the internet. Here are a few Twitter reactions in this regard:

How silly was that unnecessary throw from Odeon Smith on the fourth ball of the over?
But that shouldn't take the focus away from Tewatia's brilliance in the last two balls and Odeon bowling in the slot.Advertisement
