"Would have liked to finish it a bit early, but good to get those two points. (Captaincy) It's been very exciting for me to be able to take up this role. Except for the over-rate, everything has been good," Gill said.

“When I am out there batting, I just want to play as a batter. I don't want to think too much about the captaincy. He was trying to rush me there, but the ball that I got out, I would have made that decision even if I was batting as a batsman or even without that little bit that we had," he added.

Shubman Gill made 35 runs off 29 balls with a strike rate of 120.69. He was the second-highest scorer of the match for GT. However, Rahul Tewatia's brisk 36 off 18 balls saw Gujarat home.
