That's it from a dominating game of cricket in the IPL as GT get their name engraved in the qualifiers. Time to take your leave on behalf of my co-commentators Ayan Chatterjee, Akshaya Krishna Polya and scorer Paras Yadav. This is Ninaad Dixit, signing off. Stay tuned for more cricket action from around the world.  
Shubman Gill (Player of the Match): "Thank You so much. It's quite pleasing. I made by IPL debut against SRH and completed my first century against them. So, life is a full circle. Not really. Just wanted to focus on today and the most pleasing thing for me was the shot against Abhishek Sharma. I wanted to play to the merit of the ball and did not think much about missing out in the last game. Hope to get more 100s in the future and happy to contribute to the team."  
Hardik Pandya (Gujarat Titans Captain): "Very proud of the boys. 2 in 2. Last year was very different. This year we knew there will be lot of challenges. The way the boys have shown their character and put their hand up in difficult situations, we deserve to be in the qualifiers.

I spoke with my boys we know where we stand and there will be expectations for us to show what we've got. We have ticked a lots of boxes, have made some errors as well. I don't think any team could run through us this season. The guys have focused where they needed to and that's why we stand here.

Bowlers are close to my heart. Batters take the credit generally but couple of overs and couple of wickets can be important so I am a bowler's captain and make sure they get the credit which they sometimes don't get."

Mohammad Shami (Gujarat Titans): "Yes, my job is to take wickets in the powerplay and I focus on bowling to my strengths and bowling into the wicket and getting rewards. The aim is to hit the right areas.

As a group we try to hit the right areas and happy to be successful. Same type of wicket that we played against Delhi and the ball was stopping.

Mohit and Rashid bowled in the middle overs and Mohit's variation also works in the middle overs.

I am in Gujarat and won't get food. But I enjoy Gujarati food."     
Mohammad Shami gets the purple cap!
Aiden Markram (Sunrisers Hyderabad Captain): "Yes, exactly Ravi (Ravi Shastri). At half time of the match, we had the belief in us of chasing this down. You will not chase many games when you lose 4 wickets in the Powerplay. See, we had a high-class bowlers and we thought that the ball would swing early on but it didn't. Gill did well. Credit to Bhuvneshwar Kumar for bringing it back.

100% Klaasen is a great player. No one has come up with support for him. He has a lot of amount of class and power. A lot of pride is still left for us. Hopefully, the guys come together and finish the season on a high. Maybe we'll give out a few chances and the guys can finish strong, but we haven't been good.

When the team is down in the last half of the innings it can go two ways. If we pick up wickets, you will keep picking wickets or it might also go the other side with batters finishing with plenty of runs. Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar)was brilliant and so is Nattu (Natarajan) who has been bowling well this season."
11:22 PM IST: Its the end of the road for the Sunrisers Hyderabad this season as they get hammered by the Gujarat Titans by 34 runs in their 12th league fixture. Gujarat Titans at the other hand qualify and make sure they will end in the top 2 of this year's IPL.

After a terrific maiden IPL century from opener Shubman Gill and his partnership with Sai Sudharsan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar got SRH back in the hunt finishing with 5/30 as all the other 9 batters couldn't cross single digits. Titans were held for 188/9, a total which is easily chaseable on this surface.

Enters Mohammad Shami getting a wicket in the very first over repeating the feat achieved by Bhuvneshwar in the first innings. Yash Dayal (1/31) making a comeback after a long time complemented Shami well getting a wicket in the 2nd over of the match with Shami striking twice again inside the powerplay, the score being 45/4 after 6.
Mohit Sharma struck the very first ball and got 2 wickets in his first over as he was called right after the powerplay tonight. Heinrich Klaasen hammered the spinners and played the seamers cautiously and was the lone warrior in the chase scoring 64 in 44 balls but was sent back by Shami in the bowler's final over finishing with 4/21.

Noor Ahmad (0/35 in 2.5) was taken to the cleaners and was also forced to walk off the field getting hit on the shin. Rashid was seen off by the batters not conceding a wicket to any spinner. Bhuvneshwar Kumar formed a 68-run partnership with Klaasen but the required rate was kept well beyond the reach.

Mayank Markande smoked some boundaries at the backend of the innings but it wasn't enough for the Orange Army to go through. Mohit bowling the penultimate over got rid of Bhuvneshwar for 27 in 26 balls to finish with excellent figures of 4/28. With 42 to win in the final over, Rahul Tewatia got to bowl and completed the formalities. Gujarat Titans have now officially qualified for the qualifiers.
