CSK’s work is spoiled, Gujarat captain admits it is difficult for the team to reach the playoffs


Ahmedabad. Shubman Gill, who came to captain Gujarat Titans in the new season of the Indian Premier League, showed a brilliant game against Chennai Super Kings on Friday. He scored a century while batting explosively and then led the team to victory by shining in his captaincy. However, even after this victory, it is almost impossible for Gujarat to reach the playoffs. Not us but captain Shubman Gill himself has accepted this.

Gujarat captain Shubman Gill is hopeful that his team will make it to the IPL playoffs. Despite defeating Chennai Super Kings by 35 runs, the road is not easy for them. Gujarat is at eighth position with 10 points in 12 matches and Chennai is at fourth position with 12 points. Even after winning its remaining two matches, the team is going to reach maximum 14 points. This much is not going to work because the remaining teams have a chance to reach 16 points.

Gill said, “Our chances of qualifying are 0.1 or 1 percent.” We all feel that we can still make it to the playoffs. Because I have seen that this team has done miracles and we can do it again.

Gill, who scored a century against Chennai and took the team to 231 runs for three wickets, believes that his team was left behind by a few runs. He said, “I thought we were 10-25 runs behind. At one time the score was 195 runs without any loss in 15 overs and should have reached 250.
