Suryakumar Yadav came out to the park with his video-game style cricket in the game against RCB and chased down 200 runs without batting an eyelid. Whether you were a Mumbai or an RCB fan, the innings was appreciated by one and all. But the Mumbai Indians have only Surya and Nehal Wadhera who are getting them through tough situations. The captain Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan has to come to the party before it is too late as this game is vital for the home team. The Titans, on the other hand, have been playing excellent cricket. They have hardly put a foot wrong and are almost certain to end up in the top two of the points table. Mumbai Indians Vs Gujarat Titans IPL Match at Wankhede will be an entertaining run-fest.
With some power hitters in both sides, like Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Cameron Green, Tim David, Tilak Varma, Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha, Hardik Pandya, Vijay Shankar and Rahul Tewatia, expect another big score of over 200. And do expect it to be chased down as well!
Rohit Sharma Needs to Come to the Party
Rohit Sharma aggregates 12 runs in the last five innings (2,3,0,0,7). His record doesn’t look great against Gujarat either. His match-up against Rashid has three dismissals in 21 balls with just 23 runs. Mumbai Indians will need their skipper, who has been out of sorts this IPL (just 191 runs in 11 games), to fire so that their chances of progressing to the next stage increase.
“I don’t think we can take anything for granted in this competition. You have seen games when you think the game is wrapped up and there would be a twist. It has not happened on one occasion, but it has happened on a number of occasions. As things stand this year, to take things for granted would be ill-advised. We are totally focused on this game against a very strong MI side.” – Vikram Solanki, Gujarat Titans Director
