#3 Hardik Pandya achieves new milestones
Gujarat Titans secured their fourth victory of the competition as they routed Rajasthan Royals after posting a commanding 192/4 in 20 overs, which RR failed to chase down as they fell to (155/9).

Any guesses on the other player? Well, none other than the former legendary Indian opener- Virender Sehwag.
