In this Lucknow Supergiants team lost and exited. Today Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians clashed. Today’s match is seen as crucial as the winner will face Chennai Super Kings in the final on Sunday.
Mumbai Indians won the toss and elected to bowl first.
Gujarat Titans were busy scoring runs right from the start. Although Wriddhiman Saha was dismissed with 18 (16) runs, Shubman Gill on the other side started piling on the runs, out-maneuvering all the bowlers. He had scored two centuries in a row recently. In this case, he scored 129 runs in 60 balls including 10 fours and 7 sixes against the Mumbai team.
With this, in the 16th season, Gill has amassed an impressive 851 runs in 16 matches. Gill was followed by Sai Sudarshan 43 (31) and Hardik Pandya 28 (13) as Gujarat team scored 233/3 at the end of 20 overs.
The openers Rohit Sharma 8 (7) and Nehal Vadera 4 (3) in the Mumbai Indians team chased the target.
Following this, Chris Jordan 30 (20), Suryakumar Yadav 61 (38), Thilak Verma 43 (14) played aggressively and lost the game without standing till the end. Next, Tim David and Jordan were dismissed for just two runs each, making Mumbai’s defeat almost certain. In the end, Mumbai Indians lost by 62 runs, scoring only 171/10 in 18.2 overs. Mohit Sharma was amazing with 5/10 wickets.
Rohit Sharma Interview:
Speaking after the match, Rohit Sharma said, “Gujarat team played very well. Shubman Gill’s batting impressed me. We conceded 25 more runs. We have failed to form a partnership. The most important reason for failure is when one does not play till the end, like Shubman Gill. If they lose 2 wickets in the power play, chasing the target of 234 runs becomes difficult. We also made this mistake,” he said.
He also said, “I don’t know what happened to Ishan Kishan. I saw only a slight injury to the eye. The batting line-up in the team is strong. The young players continue to bat well. Youngsters are also performing satisfactorily in bowling. Tim David was given a role. It is about stepping up and playing aggressively in crunch time. I know Vishnu Vinod personally. Best player. We hope to do better next season,” he said.
