Right up till the eleventh over, Mumbai was still in the game.

The perfect powerplay start, primarily provided by Ishan Kishan, who has had an impressive season thus far, was something Mumbai terribly lacked on Friday.

After their crushing victory over Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator at Chepauk on Wednesday, Mumbai Indians rose to the top of the IPL 2023 betting odds—not to mention the Qualifier 2 match.

Also, why not? In the playoffs, no team has ever defeated Rohit Sharma’s men since 2017.

Consequently, their five IPL titles. However, Gujarat Titans, the defending champions, ended the streak on Friday. GT reached their second IPL final in a row with an emphatic 62-run victory.

Relying on favorable home conditions and Mohit Sharma’s five-wicket haul, as well as Shubman Gill’s sensational batting performance.

MI was not excluded from the contest. Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green steadied the ship after the initial blows to take MI to 123 for three against a formidable target of 234. A score that has never been chased in the history of the Indian Premier League.

Right up till the eleventh over, Mumbai was still in the game. Suryakumar carried the momentum alone after the latter left, resulting in him scoring a fifty as well.

However, MI was defeated in 18.2 overs after his dismissal in the 15th over. The remaining lineup collapsed quickly.

What Mumbai profoundly missed on Friday was the ideal beginning in the powerplay. Principally given by Ishan Kishan, who has had a noteworthy season up to this point.

In any case, he didn’t bat in that frame of mind against GT. Nehal Wadhera was approached to open in the wake of coming in as an Effect Player and oversaw just 3 off 4.

While Vishnu Vinod supplanted Ishan as a blackout substitute. After the sixteenth over of Gujarat’s innings.

Which was bowled by Chris Jordan, the bowler was putting on his cap when Ishan, who was exchanging sides.

Slammed into him. Jordan’s elbow struck Ishan in the left eye straight during the collision. The physio was called in, and then the wicketkeeper left the field. The game was stopped.

Due to a freak injury, MI was forced to use Vishnu as Rohit Sharma’s replacement in the batting order instead of Ishan.

After MI’s heartbreaking defeat in Ahmedabad, Rohit stated, “We did not expect that, he had a bit of a concussion, I don’t know how it happened.”
