Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson had won the toss in the final and he chose to bowl first, but his batters couldn’t impress on the day as Hardik’s bowling unit gave a good account of themselves to restrict RR to a modest total of 130 in their respective 20 overs.
In reply, GT chased down the required total with relative ease, having seven wickets in hand and 11 balls to spare.
