The Gujarat team, who are the reigning champions, have emerged victorious against all other teams in the Indian Premier League except for one, the Mumbai Indians. During their last encounter, Gujarat failed to score 9 runs in the final over, resulting in a 5-run win for Mumbai thanks to the exceptional bowling skills of Daniel Sams.

After suffering defeats in their first two matches, the Mumbai Indians made a remarkable comeback by winning three consecutive games in the tournament. In their previous match, the team successfully chased down a target of 215 runs, with both Green and Surya contributing half-centuries. However, their hopes of victory were dashed in the final over by Arshdeep Singh's exceptional bowling skills. Despite possessing a strong batting lineup, the Mumbai Indians are concerned about their bowling attack, as their star player Jofra Archer has failed to perform at his best in this tournament. In addition, Arjun Tendulkar's 31-run over proved to be a game-changing moment, and Jason Behrendroff struggled to contain runs in the death overs despite a solid performance in the powerplay. Mumbai will be hoping for an improved showing from their bowling department in their upcoming match.

 

 

Probable XI :

 Rohit, Ishan, Green, Surya, Tilak, Tim David, Hritik, Arjun, Chawla, Jofra, Behrendorff/Meredith
