New Delhi. Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans are going to clash at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. For the first time this season, these two teams will be face to face. This match is special in many ways. Especially because Gujarat captain Hardik Pandya used to be the apple of the eye of Mumbai Indians but he was released. Pandya would like to beat his old team which could not happen last season. Now Pandya will enter this match with the intention of settling the score.
Let us tell you that Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians had their first encounter 354 days ago. In which Pandya & Co. had to face defeat by 5 runs. The amazing thing is that in that match both Gujarat opener Shubman Gill and Saha scored half-centuries, but despite this Mumbai won the match by 5 runs. Now the question is, will Hardik & Co. be able to hit back at their home?
Gujarat has guts
The team of Gujarat Titans is very strong. His batsmen, bowlers are all doing well. But the problem this season is that Gujarat has lost 2 out of 3 matches at home. By the way, Gujarat has good players to stop Mumbai Indians. Especially to counter Rohit Sharma, Pandya can use leg-spinners Rashid Khan and Shami.
Rohit’s pathetic record against Rashid
Rohit Sharma’s record against the world’s number 1 T20 bowler Rashid Khan is not good. Rashid has given 23 runs in 21 balls against Rohit and he has taken his wicket 3 times. By the way, Mohammed Shami is also a good option to dismiss Rohit, who has taken 6 wickets in powerplay this year and during this time he has not given any run in 61 balls.
Mumbai’s batting is not only dependent on Rohit
The good thing is that all the batsmen of Rohit Sharma are seen in explosive style. All the batsmen of the Mumbai Indians team are scoring runs at a strike rate of more than 140. Especially Tilak Verma has done wonders and Cameron Green’s bat is also spewing runs. Suryakumar Yadav has also scored runs in two matches in the last three. In such a situation, be prepared to see a high-voltage contest between Gujarat and Mumbai.
