Gujarat Titans have been the best side of the competition, not withstanding their loss to Chennai in the first qualifier. Home conditions make them even stronger. Yet, it is Mumbai Indians who have an edge when it comes to the opening partnership. I am backing Mumbai to post the highest opening partnership while a small amount can be put on Gill and Madhwal in the individual markets.

  • Gujarat Titans have conceded the highest opening partnership in their last 4 matches (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have posted the highest opening partnership in 4 of their last 5 matches (IPL)
  • Gujarat Titans have scored the most powerplay runs in their last 7 matches at this venue (IPL)
  • Shubman Gill has top-scored for Gujarat Titans in 4 of their last 5 matches (IPL)
  • Akash Madhwal has taken the most wickets for Mumbai Indians in 3 of their last 4 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


There have been three matches between Gujarat and Mumbai so far, with Gujarat winning two. This season, they have shared the honours though.

Gujarat won the match at this venue by 55 runs with Gill top-scoring for the Titans. Mumbai rode on Suryakumar Yadav’s century to win the reverse fixture by 27 runs with Madhwal topping their bowling charts.

Gujarat Titans Form


After topping the group stage with ten wins, Gujarat lost in the first qualifier to Chennai Super Kings in Chennai by 15 runs.

It was baptism by fire on a spinning track as their batters failed to deliver. A return home will bring smiles as they won three of their last four here. Yet, defeats to Delhi, Rajasthan and Kolkata suggest they aren’t invincible in these conditions.

Shubman Gill’s cracking form (722 runs, Avg. 55.53) is a reason for their confidence as Gujarat continue to rely on his batting. With the ball, Mohammed Shami (26) and Rashid Khan (25) continue to battle for the ‘Purple Cap’ and in turn helping their fortunes.

Gujarat Titans Team News


Darshan Nalkande hobbled off in their last match and could be a doubt here with Yash Dayal likely to replace. Dasun Shanaka’s place may be under threat from Josh Little.

Mumbai Indians Form


Mumbai finished fourth in the regular season and then came up against Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator in Chennai. A spirited all-round effort saw them crush the Super Giants by 81 runs to storm into the second qualifier.

With four wins from their last five matches, Rohit Sharma’s men are making the right noises. The impressive Cameron Green (422 runs, SR 161.06) is making the number three spot his own, easing the pressure on other batters.

Suryakumar Yadav (544) will be crucial for their chances as Mumbai look for bowling lead duty from Piyush Chawla (21 wickets). Then there’s the young Akash Madhwal, who took 12 wickets in his last four matches including a stunning 5/5 in the Eliminator.

Mumbai Indians Team News


Nehal Wadhera continues to impress and could force his way into the playing XI. Hrithik Shokeen could continue musical chairs with Kumar Kartikeya.
