Pandya’s superb bowling in the middle overs was well supported by Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan (1-18) and derailed Rajasthan’s bid for a second IPL title since winning the inaugural edition in 2008. (Image: IPL)

Samson tried to accelerate the scoring rate but was caught at third man off Pandya’s second ball. Buttler, who scored four centuries and four half centuries during this IPL season, got a faint edge as he tried to guide a short ball to third man. (Image: IPL)

The Gujarat skipper then made sure Rajasthan was without power-hitters in the death overs, taking a return catch to dismiss Shimron Hetmyer (11) with the last ball of his four-over spell. (Image: IPL)

Trent Boult (1-14) and this season’s top wicket-taker, Yuzvendra Chahal (1-20), bowled well for Rajasthan but Pandya carefully negotiated the middle overs by combining in a 63-run stand with Gill for the third wicket. (Image: IPL)

Chahal ended up with 27 wickets in the tournament when Pandya was caught in the slips in the 14th over. But Gujarat’s depth in the middle-order batting — the team topped the table with 20 points from 10 wins during the league stage — saw it home. David Miller (32 not out) and Gill comfortably took the tournament newcomer to the winning target. (Image: IPL) (With inputs from AP)
