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.
Former CSK Player:
Former CSK player Chris Jordan was the main reason behind Mumbai Indians’ defeat. He came in as a replacement for Zobra Archer and recently bowled brilliantly in an eliminator match. Due to this, he was given an over in the power play in Qualifier 2. But, he did not perform well in it. He conceded 56 runs in 4 overs.
Not only that, Jordan, who went to field after putting the over, unexpectedly bumped Ishan Kishan with his elbow. In this, the badly injured Ishan Kishan struggled with pain and was forced to leave the playing eleven.
As a result, Kishan Kankashan was dropped as per the rules and replaced by Vishnu Vishal. When the target of 234 runs was set, the match would have been on a different level only if Ishan Kishan had played as the opener.
