In the match 57 of the Indian Premier League 2023, Mumbai Indians will take on Gujarat Titans at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. At home in their previous fixture, MI defeated RCB in a convincing fashion by six wickets. Meanwhile, GT are also coming off a big home victory against LSG by 56 runs. Both teams are currently in the top four of the IPL standings, that’s why this fixture has all the ingredients to be an instant classic at the iconic Wankhede Stadium.
The batting lineup of Mumbai Indians is firing on all cylinders currently even when their captain Rohit Sharma is woefully out of form with the bat. Suryakumar Yadav has found his magical touch in this year’s IPL with a run of big scores in recent matches, culminating in easy wins for Mumbai, whether at home or away venues. The bowling department of MI has recently lost the services of Jofra Archer for the entire season, but the three-wicket haul on return from Jason Behrendorff will keep them in good stead for the remaining matches of the tournament.
Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha at the top of the order for Gujarat Titans have been immense in their last couple of matches. The captain Hardik Pandya has also found his boundary hitting flow, which allows the middle order of GT the freedom to express themselves as they may please. As far as their bowling goes, Gujarat are wonderfully spearheaded by Mohammed Shami in the powerplay, while Afghanistani international duo of Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmad are picking up wickets consistently in the middle overs as well.
