Today, the teams of Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians will face off at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai from 7:30 pm. Talking about Gujarat, it is running at the top of the points table, while Mumbai is in the last position. After defeating Rajasthan, MI finally secured their first win of the season, while Gujarat had to face a crushing defeat at the hands of Punjab in the last match.
Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, and Jasprit Bumrah can be part of Team India in terms of the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, the fans will hope that all of them come back in full form.
GT captain Hardik Pandya told that against Punjab he had deliberately decided to bat first after winning the toss. Actually, he wanted to see how his players perform in difficult situations. The result was that Punjab chased the target before 16 overs. However, Hardik later said that his team would learn from this match and perform better in the upcoming matches.
Rahul Tewatia is a brilliant match finisher but when the team comes out to bat first, his bat does not show anything special. Mohammed Shami had taken 3 wickets in the power play for the first time at the beginning of the season, but after that gradually the edge seems to be disappearing from his balls. Liam Livingstone had hit hard during his bowling and also hit a smashing six of 117 meters. Shami has to bring consistency in his performance.
There is nothing left for Mumbai Indians to get in this competition. Rohit has already indicated that players who not got chance to play till now, will also be given the opportunity. From here, Mumbai can try players who can become an important part of the playing XI in the coming years.
MI Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Dewald Brevis/Tim David, Kieron Pollard, Hrithik Shokeen, Daniel Sams, Jasprit Bumrah, Kumar Kartikeya, Riley Meredith
GT Probable XI: Shubhman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Sai Sudarshan, Hardik Pandya, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Pradeep Sangwan/Yash Dayal, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami
