Chris Morris: 82* off 32
Balls innings Highlights IPL 9 2016 Vs GL
What a match. Absolute thriller of a contest. Both the teams had equal chance and it was Gujarat who held nerves in the end to emerge victorious.
Delhi lost early wickets as they were 16/3 at one stage and their middle order had a mountain to climb. Pant, on debut got a start but failed to convert. And then we saw something special from Chris Morris. The South African shared a superb 87-run stand with his country mate and brought the game close. Some fantastic last two overs made sure Delhi don’t cross the line in the end. Chris Morris finished unbeaten on 82 off just 32 balls.
The run chase was divided into two halves. First Delhi started off poorly but came back stronger in the next 10 overs. It was Chris Morris, the million dollar baby gave us a thriller of a contest. The crowd totally enjoyed it although their side lost by a mere one run.
Man of the Match, Chris Morris: I’m just very happy I contributed today. Personally happy. I was quite lucky to be honest. Just happy that I could contribute. Last few months I’ve practiced on my batting. You have to give yourself some time. It hurts when you lose tight ones like this. (Whether this one was his best T20 game) Definitely. This one was one of the best knocks I played.
