Gujarat Giants eliminates Southern Super Stars from playoffs race

Kevin O'Brien opted to field first and the Giants got the early scalp of Jesse Ryder in the second over. A 55-run stand between Upul Tharanga (34) and Shreevats Goswami (24) was the major highlight of the insipid batting performance from the Super Stars.

Left-arm spinner Monty Panesar separated Tharanga and Goswami with the latter's removal in the 12th over. Former Ireland pacer Trent Johnston mustered figures of 3/30 from his four overs, involving the lower order wickets, to restrict Ross Taylor and Co. to 159/8 in 20 overs.

Bengal-born batter Abhishek Jhunjhunwala smashed 81 runs off 49 balls, hammering 10 boundaries and three sixes, to set the tone for the moderate run-chase. Elton Chigumbura smashed successive sixes off Chaturanga de Silva's bowling to wrap up the game for Gujarat Giants with eight balls to spare.
