But this wicket didn't hinder Gujarat Titans' batting effort as the defending champs managed to post a massive total of 207 runs. The true catalyst behind this total was Abhinav Manohar, who scored a blistering 42 in 21 balls. 

Reacting to this performance and the partnership with David Miller,  Abhinav Manohar spoke about how he had a conversation with Ashish Nehra during timeout, where the plan was to play free-flowing cricket. 

He said, "I went in when a few wickets fell, we had the timeout. Ashu pa came in and told me to carry the game for three overs, if it's in your zone hit it, if not knock it around for singles, we can make up the runs in the end because we have the firepower to do that. That's what me and Miller spoke about and it paid off.  There was an effort to actually to get more runs in the middle overs."
