Pre-match Analysis

Defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) will host Mumbai Indians (MI) in the 57th game of the Indian Premier League 2023

Mumbai Indians have played immensely well against the Gujarat Titans until recently and they would like to make things square after the first match between both sides. Both teams would like to make the most of the batting-friendly conditions and get a win in the most crucial stage of the tournament to qualify for the playoffs. 

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Shubman Gill, the star performer for the Gujarat Titans in the TATA IPL, is showing his everlasting class and form. When the team arrives at Wankhede, and the opponent is Mumbai Indians, against whom Shubman Gill has piled runs in the past, he is expected to be the best batter of the match. 

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

Rashid Khan is renowned for his ability to perform in situations where no one could possibly have performed. He has already picked up as many as 8 wickets in only three games and would look to continue his form. This is why he may be the best bowler of the match between the Gujarat Titans and the Mumbai Indians. 

Match Details

Mumbai Indians will be taking on the Gujarat Titans in the 57th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on 12th May 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset. 

Pitch Report

The Wankhede Stadium is popular for its belter of a pitch and fast outfield. It is a day game and that is why the heat of Mumbai may test the side fielding first. The captain who wins the toss may want to field first regardless of the heat. Along with that, the shorter boundary on all sides may prove to be a crucial factor as well as the dew coming in the later half of the game in deciding the outcome of the match.

Today’s match prediction: Final Thoughts

Both teams have shown their calibre and would look to translate the same into a comprehensive performance in this crucial stage of the tournament. Because of the recent past record, the team combination, and form, Gujarat Titans are the favourites to win this match.
