It will be a homecoming of sorts for Hardik, but the Titans are unlikely to roll out a red carpet. They have an impressive record at this venue, and Mumbai are traditionally poor starters. I am putting my money on a Gujarat win.

  • Gujarat Titans have won 4 of their last 5 group stage matches at this venue (IPL)
  • Gujarat Titans have won both their matches at this venue against Mumbai (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have lost their last 11 season opening matches (IPL)
  • Shubman Gill had three scores of 94 or more in his last 4 matches at this venue (IPL)

Head to Head


There have been four matches between the Gujarat Titans and the Mumbai Indians so far. Both teams have won two games each.

Last season, the Titans won two matches, including a playoff match, while losing once. Both of their wins came at this venue.

Gujarat Titans Form


The Gujarat Titans finished runners-up to the Chennai Super Kings last season after topping the points table in the group phase. They had ten wins out of 14, which included one against Mumbai at this venue.

This summer has been an interesting one for the Titans, who lost captain Hardik Pandya to Mumbai. Shubman Gill takes charge of the Titans as they embark on a new challenge.

Mohammed Shami has been ruled out of the tournament, and Sandeep Warrier has been brought in as his replacement. Robin Minz, an exciting purchase from the auction, was also unfortunately ruled out of the season, with Sharath replacing him.

Gujarat Titans Team News


The Titans will be without Matthew Wade for this match, who is playing in the Sheffield Shield final. Rashid Khan and Kane Williamson are fit and raring to go.

Mumbai Indians Form


The Mumbai Indians made it to the playoffs last year by finishing fourth with 16 points in the group stage. They defeated the Lucknow Super Giants in the eliminator but lost to Gujarat in the second qualifier.

The return of Hardik Pandya, captaining the side where he started his IPL career, was the news of the summer. That meant a demotion for long-standing captain Rohit Sharma, a sore point that left a large number of their fans upset.

Fast bowler Jason Behrendorff has been ruled out of the tournament with an injury, and the Indians signed Luke Wood in his place. Even Dilshan Madushanka is ruled out, with South African young sensation Kwena Maphaka taking his place.

Suryakumar Yadav is not available for the first match as he continues his rehab from the ankle surgery.

Verdict

It could be an emotional game of sorts for Hardik Pandya, but it remains to be seen if Mumbai rises up to the occasion. Notorious for their slow starts, the Mumbai Indians may once again find it difficult to get off the blocks. That’s more so because the Gujarat Titans have excelled at this venue. I am putting my money on the Gujarat Titans’ win.
