Gujarat Titans will take on Mumbai Indians in the Qualifier 2 of the Indian Premier League 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. GT will play this fixture at home after suffering a tough loss in Qualifier 1 down south against Chennai Super Kings. Meanwhile, MI will arrive in Ahmedabad after steamrolling Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator in Chennai.
Both these teams have played each other twice during the IPL 2023 league stage, with each winning their home games comfortably. That’s why, the upcoming Qualifier 2 between Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians is expected to be a quality game with a spot in the IPL final on the line.
Gujarat Titans' batting lineup struggled for fluency in their Qualifier 1 matchup against Chennai Super Kings at the Chepauk on a very tough pitch. But now that GT will play Qualifier 2 in the familiar surroundings of Ahmedabad, their batters, including the likes of Shubman Gill, captain Hardik Pandya, David Miller, and Vijay Shankar, will be looking to score big runs once again. In the bowling department, the Titans are quite reliant on their experienced pairing of Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan, who have been magnificent with the ball right throughout the IPL 2023.
Mumbai Indians' batting lineup has been on a roll in their last few matches of this year’s IPL, with players like Suryakumar Yadav, Cameron Green, and Nehal Wadhera in superb form. The captain of MI, Rohit Sharma hasn’t set the stage alight this season with the bat, but it might be his opportunity to shine in the crunch match. As far as the Mumbai bowling attack goes, they have found a gem in Akash Madhwal in the latter stages of this IPL season, while experienced bowlers like Piyush Chawla and Jason Behrendorff have been giving consistent performances with the ball.
