DV Vs GG – Match Report: Gulf Giants Win ILT20 2023, Beat Desert Vipers in Final to Clinch Inaugural Title. Gulf Giants – The Champion!

Post Presentation

James Vince, Winning Captain: It’s a great feeling. Congratulations to the Desert Vipers as well but only one team can win. Taking some big wickets, Hasaranga batted well and put us under pressure but we fought back with the ball. Sticky surface but Lynny showed his class tonight. It is good for the young players to learn from the experienced family.

Colin Munro, Losing Captain: The first seven-eight overs with the bat (where they erred). They bowled really well. Credit to the Giants and they have been the form team. They beat us twice in the group stage and they were a bit better team tonight. The boys have been outstanding, couldn’t have asked for a better group, they have backed me as a skipper, had some brilliant time off the field as well. I’ve enjoyed myself and it has been a big learning curve for me, even at the backend of my career. We really had a family feeling throughout the tournament. Credit to the groundstaff as well.

Gulf Giants overcame MI Emirates in the second Qualifier and made it to final, then become Champion!.
