Bowling strength makes Gujarat favourites
- Mumbai come off close loss to Punjab
- Gujarat have alternated between wins and losses in the last few games
Gujarat Titans have a supremely good bowling attack, one that has time and again stepped up. They gave Gujarat a win last game from an improbable situation against Lucknow. Gujarat Titans have odds of 1.80 to beat Mumbai Indians.

Mumbai have been in good form, especially with the bat, and if that can continue in Ahmedabad, they might just be able to test Gujarat in their home ground. However, the bowling still has some work to be done. Mumbai Indians have odds of 1.98 to Gujarat Titans.
Head-to-head record, GT v MI
The head-to-head record is based off one game between these sides in 2022 at the Brabourne stadium. Mumbai won that contest despite the contrasting fortunes of the teams in the season as such.
The pitch and conditions in Ahmedabad would mean that teams batting first have a slight advantage. The spinners could come into play in the second half.
With their impeccable bowling attack, Gujarat are favourites to win at a venue where six-hitting isn’t that easy.
The average score at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad is around 170-180 runs. But teams have had mixed fortunes here in the last few games, especially when setting totals.
Pitch and conditions
The pitch in Ahmedabad would be good for batting with the spinners coming into play given the large ground dimensions. There’ll be early movement for the quicks, but not enough to worry the openers.
Players to keep an eye on…
GT Predicted playing XI:
Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar, David Miller, Hardik Pandya (C), Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma
MI Predicted playing XI:
Rohit Sharma (C), Ishan Kishan (WK), Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, Tim David, Cameron Green, Nehal Wadhera, Arjun Tendulkar, Piyush Chawla, Jason Behrendorff, Hrithik Shokeen.
Suryakumar Yadav: The Mumbai batter returned to form last match and has a good record at this venue. Expect him to continue his good run this match.
Shubman Gill: The Gujarat opener hasn’t quite made a huge impact at this venue yet. But with Mumbai lacking quality quicks, Gill could make a big score here.
