FULL TIME! At the end of Turn 4: Gujarat Giants 51-48 Telugu Yoddhas

We have just witnessed an absolute edge-of-the-seat thriller here and it is the Giants who have just managed to edge past their opponents today courtesy of a better showing in the second innings. The Yoddhas failed to hold their nerves when it mattered the most and in the end, they succumb to a narrow loss. After facing two such losses themselves, the Giants finally find themselves on the right side of the result and move to the second position while the Yoddhas slip to the third. While they started the day at the numero uno position, they will end the day with being third. A fantastic game in which both sides spared no efforts and it is the Giants emerge on top in the end!

Just a 15-point lead for the Yoddhas going into the fourth turn of the game. Well, while it certainly does not look to be enough, let's not forget that it was the very same margin by which Mumbai Khialdis led at the end of the the third turn against the Warriors.
