The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) like every season, there has been some drama on and off the field including another scare from COVID-19. Gujarat Titans, led by their charismatic captain Hardik Pandya, have been the real success story of the tournament so far.

GT lost two early wickets, with Chahal picking up one of them, but eventually chased down the target of 131 with 11 balls to spare.
