Rahul Tewatia remembers his blitz against the Punjab Kings in the forthcoming IPL 2020: “I watched it just three days ago.
An explosive southpaw for Gujarat Titans (GT), Rahul Tewatia, asserted that he was reminded of his blitz against Punjab Kings during the 2020 IPL season when he was wearing the Rajasthan Royals outfit. Notable: With a 31-ball 53, the southpaw inspired his team to a thrilling victory over Punjab at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
His knock included up to seven maximums at an astonishing strike rate of 170.96 as he went after Punjab’s 223 runs. Tewatia claimed that he had only recently watched the entire game after receiving an email with images of the entire game and a Divine music he could completely identify to.
“Yes, just three days ago on the plane from Lucknow. I started watching it after someone sent me a modified tape that included images from the innings and the music from Divine’s song, “Edit karke Image tune mera Meme bana diya.” In the first 17 or 18 deliveries, I also scored four to five runs. Tewatia claims: “I was like, ‘This song fits perfectly with the innings I played.'”
The Royals’ thrilling four-wicket victory over Punjab was made possible by Tewatia, Sanju Samson (85 off 42 balls), and former skipper Steve Smith (50 off 27 balls). Tewatia is currently a member of the Gujarat Titans, the reigning champions, but he has not yet made a big impact on their success.
The southpaw has accumulated 63 runs in 11 appearances with a personal best of 20 runs. With 16 points after 11 games and a respectable Net Run Rate (NRR) of 0.951, Gujarat, captained by Hardik Pandya, is in the lead of the IPL Points Table and is certain to secure a position in the play-offs. Gujarat has three games left in the group games and will do their hardest to qualify for Qualifier 1.
