The head-to-head record is even after two meetings with one win apiece for either team. While Mumbai won this clash in 2022, earlier this season Gujarat recorded a 55-run victory.

The average score in T20 matches at the Wankhede is over 175 but with the kind of power at their disposal, Mumbai should aim for 200+ if they are to defend the total against a strong Gujarat side.
