12:15am Phew. That was a game and a half. And guess what? It only gets better tomorrow. The Mumbai Indians will be taking on the Royal Challengers Bengaluru, and both of them will be aiming for their second win this season. Do join us for that game too. Until then, this is goodbye from all of us here at ESPNcricinfo. Goodnight and take care!

Rashid Khan, Player of the Match: (What pleased him more, his bowling or his batting) Well, most pleasing was winning the game. Was struggling a bit with the bowling and was happy I was hitting the right areas today, and that made me happier, and gave me energy in my batting. I have not bowled much in the last three-four months and just trying to get used to bowling again, getting that feel back in my fingers. I just lost a little bit of grip. Had a good session before the last game and that really helped me, and I felt I was a little bit back to my best. Enjoyed today. (On chasing a high run-rate) It is just a matter of hitting three or four sixes and that brings the run-rate down. You just have to be positive. The more positive you are thinking inside, the better the result comes out.

Shubman Gill, Gujarat Titans captain: We were targeting 45 in three overs and that is very much gettable, and that was the mindset. Mathematically, it is like both batters need to score 9-ball 22 runs or so and if one of the batters goes berserk, it will get over 2-3 balls prior. (On the Impact Player rule) It does make a difference if you have an extra batter. But it is just the mindset to make it easier and simpler. I would have loved to finish the game but very happy with the way Rashid bhai and Rahul bhai finished the game. Last game also, we dominated more than 50% but our bad phases were very bad. Winning the game off the last ball is a wonderful feeling. He (Rashid) is such a fantastic player, someone you always want in your team. When GT is playing, don't think that (we have left ourselves too much to do).

Sanju Samson, Rajasthan Royals captain: (On where they lost) The last ball of the game (laughs). To be honest, it is very hard to speak at this moment. The captain has the hardest job in the league to speak after losing the game and to tell where we lost is tough. Maybe after a few hours, I can tell. You have to give credit to the Gujarat Titans the way they batted, bowled and fielded. We will learn from this and move on. (On the score) When I was batting, I thought something around 180 would be a fighting score. I thought 197 was a winning score. There was no dew and the wicket was a bit dry and low. With our bowling attack, we should have done it but they batted well. It was not easy to go hard enough at the start of our innings. We paced our innings well. 197 at Jaipur, without dew, you will take it any day.

Sai Sudharsan: We gave a few runs extra in the first innings but we pulled off a great game. (On their approach) Getting a good powerplay was one of our plans. It was a par powerplay. Then we lost a few wickets back-to-back. But we had belief and we won the game. The wicket was not that easy to bat on but it got a little better after the first innings, so it was easier for our hitters to smash a few shots. This victory was much-needed for us and gives us momentum. Hopefully we play a few more good games and have a good season.

11:47pm And...breathe. Back to back thrillers, and this was perhaps even better then yesterday, just because of how far behind the Titans seemed when about five overs were left. They needed 73 off 30, and used all 30 of those balls to get past the finish line.

Rashid iced the cake, showing off his range of stroke-play, even as the pressure was amped up. Tewatia did his bit too, scoring 22 off 11. The chase, though, was set up by GT's skipper, who played several astounding strokes en route a 44-ball 72. And this win, given the circumstances it has come in, should reinvigorate the Titans' campaign.

As for the Royals, they will feel they have let one slip here. Their decision to give Boult just two overs was also surprising, as was the call to bowl Ashwin the 17th. His last two overs went for 30, and that was when the Titans began turning the screw.

Chahal bagged two wickets but was expensive. Avesh, too, gave away 48 in his four overs. Sen appeared to have stolen the headlines with his three-wicket burst in the middle overs, but when he came back at the death, he conceded 20, which then allowed GT to complete their turnaround in the final over.

Avesh Khan to Rashid Khan, FOUR runs

Rashid wins it for the Gujarat Titans off the final ball! Oh my, this is some finish, and the Afghan Titan has come up trumps just when they needed him to! And the Royals, who looked so good for so much of the game, are no longer invincible! Short, wide and that is just begging to be hit. Not the best ball to bowl at this stage. Rashid lays back deep in his crease, brings those fast hands into play and thumps it over point. Speeds away to the fence and Rashid wheels away in celebration. He gestures to the dugout to not worry while he is there, and today, he has proven it!

Rashid on strike. Two needed off the final ball

Avesh Khan to Tewatia, 2 runs, OUT

Tewatia gets it over mid off, but it does not go for four! And there is a run out too! Short and wide outside off. Tewatia holds his nerve and slaps it over mid off. Buttler puts on his skates and pulls it back into play. The batters get across for two runs comfortably and then they decide to go for the third. Tewatia is always struggling to get there. The throw is accurate enough, and Avesh does the rest, with Tewatia well short. In the middle of all of that, there was a check for a short run. That has been sorted now, and GT need 2 off the last ball!

Rahul Tewatia run out (Buttler/Avesh Khan) 22 (11b 3x4 0x6 42m) SR: 200

Avesh goes around the wicket. Long on, deep backward square leg, deep mid wicket and deep point on the fence

4 off 2. One hit to the fence will seal it for the Gujarat Titans. Avesh under pressure. The batters perhaps under pressure too. Who will blink first?

Avesh Khan to Rashid Khan, 1 run

low full toss, following the batter on leg stump. Rashid can only dig it out towards extra cover for a single

5 off 3 now. Surely GT's game to lose from here?

Avesh Khan to Rashid Khan, FOUR runs

an outside edge but they all count! Oh my days, the drama in Jaipur! Nails the wide yorker but Rashid somehow gets this away. He swishes hard at it and squirts it off the outside edge past the keeper!

Avesh Khan to Rashid Khan, 2 runs

almost a yorker, just outside off. Rashid sits deep in his crease and tugs it towards long on. They hare back for two and RR are lucky there was someone backing up at the keeper's end. That throw was wild

A long conference happening now between Avesh, Buttler and Samson. Long off, deep mid wicket, deep square leg and deep cover point on the fence. 11 needed off 5

Avesh Khan to Rashid Khan, FOUR runs

four off the first ball, oh my! Low full toss outside off. Rashid steps across his stumps and then shovels it over square leg. Deep mid wicket cannot get there either!

Right. 15 needed off 6. This has been done before. Avesh to bowl. RR are five minutes behind, and they can have just four fielders on the fence now. All happening here in Jaipur

Sen to Tewatia, FOUR runs

four to finish the over! Shortish outside off and this sits up nicely to be hit. Tewatia opens up his stance and boshes it over mid off!

Sen to Rashid Khan, 1 leg bye

follows the batter well outside leg. Bowls it on a length and Rashid cannot connect with his swipe. The ball pings off the pads into the on side. Rashid livid with himself

Sen to Rashid Khan, 1 wide

slower ball that goes wrong and slides well down leg. Another wide, and Sen might just be feeling the pressure now

21 off 8. A six here, and things will get very interesting

Sen to Rashid Khan, 2 runs

taken at deep square leg but it will not count! Banged into the track just outside off. Gets up very high and Rashid cannot control his pull. Skies it and deep square leg takes it running in. A brace to Rashid

Sen to Rashid Khan, (no ball) FOUR runs

shot! Goes for the wide yorker but errs on the fuller side. Rashid, sitting deep in his crease, gets under it and scythes it over extra cover. And, it gets worse for the Royals because Sen has overstepped...

28 off 9. GT will not mind a boundary, right about now

Sen to Rashid Khan, 1 run

sizzling yorker, honing into the pads. Rashid whips at it and squirts it away towards short fine leg. Might have nutmegged himself too but the important detail is that it is just a single. By the way, had Avesh hit the stumps at the batter's end, Tewatia was well out of his ground

35 off 12. Sen to bowl. Can Rashid turn on the heat?

Avesh Khan to Rashid Khan, 1 run

what a save! Slower ball dug into the track outside off. Rashid stands up tall and slaps it flat towards long on. Buttler puts in a dive to his left and somehow manages to stop it on the half-volley. He went at it reverse-cupped and got the job done!

36 off 13. GT would love a boundary here

Pavan: "On his day Rashid can eat this score for breakfast" -- But is today his day?

Rashid walks in. GT need 40 off 15
