IPL 2023 MI vs GT Playing 11: Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will have a Qualifier-2 match today (May 26), in which defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) will take on Mumbai Indians (MI). This fierce competition will take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad from 7.30 pm. The winning team of this match will confirm the ticket to the final.
The team that wins this match will compete in the final with the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Mumbai has won the title the maximum number of times so far. While Gujarat is the new team of IPL. This is his second season. He won the title in his very first season (2022).
Gujarat has lost to Chennai in Qualifier-1
The Gujarat team, captained by Hardik Pandya, had to face defeat by 15 runs against Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier-1. Gujarat had qualified by being on top of the points table. In such a situation, he is getting a second chance. While Rohit Brigade defeated Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by 81 runs in the Eliminator match.
Gujarat will have to stay away from Surya and Cameron
In this match, Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green can explode with their bat for Mumbai. While Gujarat will have to survive from bowling Akash Madhwal. Madhwal took 5 wickets for 5 runs in the last match. In such a situation, this time again he can wreak havoc.
The big win of Mumbai Indians against Lucknow is a danger bell for Gujarat. Mumbai’s performance this season has been fluctuating, but now it seems that its team has returned to its best form at the right time. Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav and Tim David have faced the challenges well so far.
Apart from him, young batsman Nehal Wadhera is also making an impact, while the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Ishaan Kishan are also playing their part. With this, the Rohit Sharma-led team is moving strongly towards its sixth title.
Apart from Gill, Mumbai will have to deal with these players
While Gujarat team openers Shubman Gill and Vijay Shankar are running in excellent form. Mumbai will have to break these two to reach the final. In bowling, Mohammed Shami and Mohit Sharma are proving dangerous for Gujarat. Together these two have the power to destroy Mumbai’s top order. In the middle order, spinners Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmed can trap Mumbai players in their spin trap.
Gill has handled the responsibility of Gujarat Titans’ batting very well. This can be gauged from the fact that he has scored 722 runs in 15 matches so far. Vijay Shankar has scored the most runs after him for Gujarat, but he is 421 runs behind Gill. In Shankar’s name, 301 runs are registered in 12 matches.
Gill needs only eight runs to get the Orange Cap from RCB’s Faf Duplessis by scoring the most runs this season. However, the poor performance of captain Hardik Pandya is a matter of concern for Gujarat. He has scored only 45 runs in the last five matches. David Miller has also failed to play big innings in the middle order. In the last three matches, he could not even reach double digits.
