Indian T20 League 2023

GUJ vs MUM, 5th Match

 

Preview

Gujarat and Mumbai will square off in the 5th match of the Indian T20 League 2024. The game is scheduled to be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, March 24. 

Shubman Gill will lead the Gujarat side after their regular skipper for the last two seasons, Hardik Pandya, was traded to his old franchise, Mumbai. Hardik will lead the 5 times champions displacing Rohit Sharma. 

GUJ and MUM have met on four occasions hence dividing the cake in half. This fixture will decide who gets an edge in the Head-to-Head records. Two of their battles took place at the Narendra Modi Stadium and both times the home side walked away with the win. 

In the last edition of the Indian T20 League, GUJ won twice while MUM managed to win only once. Gujarat also outcrossed MUM in the Qualifier 2 match of the last season to wipe them off the Playoffs. 

Om analyzing Gujarat and Mumbai with their Player Head-to-Head records, Shubman Gill stands as the top run scorer with 243 runs under his belt. The dynamic opener also has the highest score of 129 which came against Mumbai in 2023. Rashid Khan follows him with an unbeaten knock of 79* runs. 

The keeper batter Wriddhiman Saha is another player to score a half-century against Mumbai. Among the bowlers, spin wizard Rashid Khan has the most wickets vs MUM with 10 scalps. One underrated thrower among them is Mohit Sharma, the 2014 Purple Cap winner who has clinched 8 scalps. Sharma has got a fifer against Mumbai while the Afghan ace spinner Rashid has picked up a four-wicket haul once. 

Mumbai side also has some big names in their toppers’ list. Suryakumar Yadav is their highest run-getter with 200 runs to his name. He previously scored a 103* run against GUJ. Veteran spinner Piyush Chawla is the leading wicket-taker with 5 scalps. Akash Madhwal has a 3-wicket haul against the one-time champions. Mumbai needs to work on their bowling arsenal which was their primary reason of crashing off last season.

Match Prediction 

If we look at both sides, the match is going to be a firecracker of a show. Gujarat being at their home stadium winning both the head-to-head matches against Mumbai at this stadium, surely has an upper hand in the upcoming fixture. 

MUM had gone through a rough patch in the last two seasons while GUJ has a balanced side and the way they have showcased their power in the last two editions of the Indian T20 League makes them the favourite to win this game.
