Gujarat Titans have stormed into the finals of the Indian Premier League after beating Rajasthan Royals in the Qualifier 1 of the Indian Premier League. In a tense match, Gujarat snatched the game away after South Africa superstar David Miller hit three back to back sixes in the final over of the game against pacer Prasidh Krishna at the Eden Gardens.
Gujarat set up their final match in their inaugural campaign in front of the home crowd at Ahmedabad where the final is scheduled to be played on Sunday, May 29.
After their thumping win in the playoffs, Gujarat Titans’ Twitter handle asked for suggestions about things to do during a four-day break. While the fans commented about activities that can be done, Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan made a cheeky comment and asked everyone involved with Gujarat Titans to go to sleep.
This had people in splits on Twitter as they appreciated the spin wizard for his fresh humour after a long and tiring season.

Rashid Khan has been a key part of the Gujarat Titans, who have been breathtaking this season. In the Qualifier 1, Rashid bowled a special spell of 4-0-15-0 without conceding a single six or a four against Rajasthan Royals.
He has been appreciated for his bowling throughout the season, and after a wicketless start in the early stage, Rashid has pulled things back and currently has 18 wickets to his name at an exceptional economy of 6.73.
Khan will be crucial for Gujarat in the finals as they wait for a couple more days to figure out who they will play.
The Narendra Modi stadium is expected to be packed for the last game with a capacity crowd expected in the venue.
