7:40 PM IST | Well that's all from this game folks! Gujarat Titans with an impressive victory over the Lucknow Super Giants! Head over to our coverage of Mumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings LIVE NOW! 

This is Anirudh, signing off on behalf of my co-commentators Ninaad Dixit and Arijit Kundu, along with our scorer/analyst Paras Yadav! It was our pleasure to bring you this game LIVE! See you on the next one! 
Mohit Sharma (Player of the Match): "Nothing is special. Everything is normal. I feel the consistency is there and it's in process. The best thing about this team is that you do well or bad, you need to go back and do the process right from the beginning.

You don't need to do a lot of things. Just do the practice and do it with honesty. Yeah, this is special. The believe factor didn't go anywhere. Hardik was again and again telling us that we are winning this game, we are winning this game. Ashu [Ashish Nehra] Bhai came in during the timeout and told us to do our work with full honesty and things will happen. It was important to stay positive and focus on the present.

I didn't think too much, was just clear with my thought process. I wasn't thinking too much that need to bowl and bouncer or a yorker so the batter keeps judging."
Player of the Match: Mohit Sharma
Hardik Pandya (Gujarat Titans Captain): "This is a way of God telling us it's okay after the first two games, something incredible happened today. The only message I wanted to give was let's not have any regrets. As a champion player you should be happy and satisfied with the effort, no matter the result. The atmosphere changed and people started believing, a win like this can change your tournament completely. 

I think the way the wicket was playing and on the high end side we could have got 10 runs more. The pitch was very slow, they bowled really well, they put the pressure on us and a couple of batters did not get the runs and we spoke about in the strategic timeout that a batter needs to bat long. They ticked off in the powerplay but I'm happy we were able to come back. 

When there was 30 balls in 30 I felt they were still ahead but when 27 off 4 overs came, I sniffed an opportunity and kind of had a sense that we might be in the game, let's keep going and every single bowler contributed and as the captain of Gujarat Titans I could not have asked for more.

The amount of cricket Mo [Mohit Sharma] has played I don't think I have to interfere, the execution, the calmness he showed made my job easy. At the same time the over that Shami bowled, showed his experience and special mention to Jayant as well, bowling like this after a long time of not playing. The credit is really theirs."

7:28 PM IST | Time for the post match presentation ceremony
Noor Ahmad (Gujarat Titans): "First of all, thanks to almighty Allah. We were in a crucial situation. We wanted to attack and that's what we achieved. In the first over, I tried to control a bit. In the second over I got the rhythm, I wanted the batter to play on the front foot and bowled good areas. In the end, it was a good result. I didn't make any changes, kept it simple. I wanted to hit the right areas and that's what I desired."
KL Rahul (LSG Captain): "I don't know how this has happened and it happened so fast. That's cricket which keeps reminding us that the game is never won until the last ball. I still can't put a finger on it and say where we went wrong but it is what it is, we've lost 2 points. We had the game in our pockets and we let it slip.

I think we were quite brilliant. 135 is probably par or 10 under par and we bowled really well. We know these conditions so we used it well. The bowlers were very clear with their plans and their execution was spot on. We started well with the bat as well. I can't believe what has happened and we just have to accept it as it is. Its a game and these things keep happening but this is going to sting us for a while and we'll try and come back strong. We are doing a lot of things right. We are 8 points strong, 7 games we have played. We are still good as a team. These things happen you are something on the wrong side.

We were well ahead of the game and I wasn't trying to bat really deep but still trying to play my shot and trying to take on the bowlers I fancy but they bowled really well in those 2-3 over period with Noor and Jayant. Should have taken few more chances as we had wickets in hand but wasn't an easy wicket for batters to come in and get going straightaway. I should have taken a few more chances or should have hit a few more off the middle of the bat."
7:15 PM IST | GUJARAT TITANS HAVE STOLEN AN INCREDIBLE VICTORY FROM THE JAWS OF DEFEAT! WE HAVE JUST SEEN 4 WICKETS FALL IN 4 BALLS IN THE LAST OVER! They shocked and defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 7 runs to make it 4 victories from the first 6 matches of the season! What a collapse this has been for the Lucknow Super Giants! 

Gujarat Titans won the toss and elected to bat first, the decision backfired almost immediately. Krunal Pandya was handed the second over of the match and he dismissed the in-form Shubman Gill for a duck to put the Titans under early pressure! However, Wriddhiman Saha and Hardik Pandya stabilized the innings, stitching together a 68 run-stand before Krunal Pandya struck again to dismiss Wriddhiman Saha on 47 runs off 37 deliveries. 

Hardik Pandya stood firm as he delivered a captain's knock, top scoring for his team with 66 runs off 50 balls! Although the rest of the batters could not contribute much to the score and the Gujarat Titans were restricted to 135/6 from their 20 overs. Krunal Pandya was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up 2/16 from his quota of 4 overs. 

Come the chase, there were always fears as the track was getting slower as the match progressed. KL Rahul became the first player to play out back to back maidens in the first over of an innings, but Mayers and KL Rahul soon swung momentum back in Lucknow's favour. The duo utilized the powerplay to the fullest extent as they smashed 55 runs in 6.2 overs before Rashid Khan struck to send Mayers back to the dugout. 

Krunal Pandya walked in at No. 3 and played the perfect fiddle for KL Rahul who was playing the anchor role, the Southpaw scored run-a-ball 23 to bring his team to a strong position at 106/2 from 14.3 overs. Noor Ahmad got the crucial breakthrough and it was a stupendous collapse followed. With 30 runs required off 30 deliveries and KL Rahul still at the crease with 8 wickets remaining, it looked like a dead game. 

However, the Gujarat Titans bowlers turned the game on it's head through some tight bowling and wickets. Noor Ahmad dismissed Nicholas Pooran for just a single run and Mohit Sharma's fairy-tale comeback story continued! Gujarat went onto pick up 4 wickets in the last over to eventually snatch the victory and the points from Lucknow's claws! The team from UP are yet to win against their counterparts from Gujarat! 

A huge confidence boosting victory for Gujarat Titans and that too in a game where they have batted first! They will be ecstatic with the result and will look to build on this in the upcoming matches!

0 Dot ball on a leg cutter! Mohit Sharma keeps his calm!! 101kph. Full and slow just outside the off stump. Bishnoi swings and misses! Gujarat Titans defend the low score! What a twist in the tale and guess what Mohit Sharma has done an incredible job here for the Titans. In the game against Rajasthan Royals, Noor Ahmad was sent ahead of Sharma to defend a total. It was a failure for GT. Eyebrows were raised and now when it comes to proving his mettle, Mohit Sharma has shown what he is capable of.
