In the last ball of the fifth over of RR’s innings, Ferguson bowled a pin-point yorker outside the off stump to Buttler, leaving him stunned with the speed as the ball passed him and settled into Wriddhiman Saha’s hands.

Beat Umran’s record of 157 kmph

Ferguson not only won the fastest delivery of the match award but also beat the record of Sunrisers Hyderabad speedster Umran Malik, who had earlier clocked a 157 kmph delivery against the Delhi Capitals. Ferguson was awarded with Rs 10 lakh for registering the fastest delivery of the entire tournament. Ferguson is known for his fast bowling and crossed the 150 kmph mark number of times in this IPL season.

GT won by defeating RR in finals

Rajasthan Royals(RR) won the toss and choose to bat first against Gujarat Titans(GT), but they failed to perform well as the Titans defeated them in a rather one-sided final. GT’s highly-rated bowling attack limited the Royals to put up 130 runs on the scoreboard for nine wickets in 20 overs.

Skipper Hardik Pandya, led from the front with three big wickets to his name including Buttler, Sanju Samson and Shimron Hetmyer. He scored 34 runs in 30 balls.

GT batters Shubman Gill and David Miller remained unbeaten on 45 and 32 respectively. They stayed unbeaten in an emphatic win for their team in 18.1 overs.
