Talking about this defeat, Gujarat Titans skipper, Shubman Gill said,  "Our batting was very average, and it is important to move on and come back strong. The wicket was alright, if you see some of the dismissals, it had nothing to do with the pitch."

"Poor shot selection I would say. When the opposition are chasing 89, unless someone takes a double hat-trick, the opposition will always be in the game. This is just the halfway mark of the season for us, we have won 3 and hopefully, we win another 5-6 from the next 7 like in the last couple of years."
