Gujarat Titans are playing Mumbai Indians in Ahmedabad where the hosts have lost their last two matches. However, GT did exceptionally well in their last game to defend a low total of 135 runs against LSG.
They will come to Ahmedabad with confidence and some bowling momentum. Mohammad Shami and Mohit Sharma will be the key bowlers along with skipper Hardik himself. Mumbai Indians have their star player SKY back in form. He almost got his team across the line in the last game at the Wankhede.
If it wasn’t for his dismissal in the 18th Over, MI had a solid chance of winning. However, Rohit Sharma will be struggling with the bowling decisions once again. Jofra Archer is his best hope with the new ball and at the death while the in-form Piyush Chawla will be expected to deliver breakthroughs in the middle overs.
GT pulled off a heist in the last game against LSG where they defended 30 off the last 30 balls. The opposition were cruising to victory with 8 wickets in hand and then Mohit Sharma and Mohammad Shami delivered something special in the last 3 overs to turn the game on its head.
Previously, Hardik Pandya played a fine knock on a tricky surface in Lucknow scoring an all-important 66 of 50 balls at number 3. The skipper managed to hit 4 sixes on a pitch where everyone else struggled to even get singles.
Wriddhiman Saha looks in good touch at the top and Gill can also be expected to find his touch on a better surface at Motera. Hardik will be aware of his team’s failure to defend 177 and 204 at this venue in their last two outings. And the recent success in Lucknow would have boosted their confidence as they look to end their losing run at home.
Rashid Khan has been on the expensive side recently. But he’s managed to deliver wickets in every game and has great value in the lower order as well. GT packs a strong punch in the lower middle order with the likes of Miller and Tewatia who can finish the game on high.
And that’s what makes chasing a better option for Gujarat Titans. There is no doubt about Hardik opting to bowl first if they win the toss.

It was a good effort from the batters chasing a big total against a quality bowling attack of Punjab Kings. Arshdeep Singh bowling two overs at the death was always going to be a tough challenge to navigate for MI. The left-arm pacer’s execution is brilliant and to hit him for 14 or more in an over is never easy.
Mumbai Indians will face a similar challenge when they come to Ahmedabad. Mohamamd Shami will make things difficult for Mumbai Indians at the top and at the death. Rohit Sharma will also be hoping to win the toss and bowl first given his team’s lack of consistency with the ball.
There’s Archer and Behrendorff in the pace department who can be really effective on their best day. However, it is only Piyush Chawla who’s been consistent so far and made the most impact.
Arjun Tendulkar is likely to be rested for this game. He wasn’t used for his full quota anyway and looking at the hammering he received in the last game, MI will consider replacing him. Arshad Khan or Sandeep Warrier should come in for Tendulkar and give Rohit some pure bowling options in a lineup that is full of all-rounders.
Rohit is in fine touch at the top and SKY has also found his form in the middle order. With Cameron Green and Tim David also coming to the party, MI can post a competitive total on a good batting surface in Ahmedabad.

There is a lot of pace and bounce on offer at the Motera. The ball comes on to the bat nicely and batters can execute their strokes freely. The weather will be partly cloudy with a high of 39 degrees Celsius.
Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, formerly known as Motera will be the venue for this GT vs MI match. The average 1st innings score in the domestic T20s at this venue is 164 runs. The winning score for team batting first will be something over 185-190 runs.
All the three matches played at this venue in IPL 2023 were won by teams chasing. And considering the MI bowling attack, it is in the best interest of both teams to bowl first.
Gujarat Titans will be coming here on the back of a brilliant win against LSG. The bowlers will be confident and the batters will be keen on making the most of the home conditions. The visitors MI have a big task on their hands. Their bowling troubles are far from over in spite of bringing in Jofra Archer. It is advantage GT considering the current form and strengths and weaknesses of both squads. Gujarat Titans will start as favorites in our match prediction.
