Gujarat Titans beat Mumbai Indians by 62 runs in Qualifier 2 to enter the final. Defending champions Gujarat Titans will face four-time champions Chennai Super Kings today (Sunday) to retain their title. Although there were many reasons for Mumbai’s defeat, as long as Surya was on the field, Mumbaikar fans were confident, but Surya’s superb shot off Mohit missed and Mumbai’s victory was lost. (MI vs GT)
Shubman Gill’s century and his partnership with Sai Sudarshan put Gujarat Titans on the front seat. Gujarat Titans made a mountain of 233 runs. After that, Mohit Sharma took 5 wickets in 14 balls and sent the entire team of Mumbai Indians back for 171 runs.
Shubman Gill scored 129 runs in 60 balls with 7 fours and 10 sixes. Shubman and Sai Sudarshan added 138 runs in 64 balls. Sudarshan had to retire on 43 (31 balls). Hardik took Gujarat to 233 for 3 while scoring 28 runs in 13 overs.
Giving away two lives to Shubman Gill at the start cost Mumbai Indians dearly. Tim David took a catch, an easy catch for Tilak Verma, but he didn’t make the effort. Rohit Sharma was very upset due to this. The performance of the bowlers of Mumbai Indians remained moderate today.
Ishan Kishan’s injury before taking to the field to chase down the target was a huge blow for Mumbai. Ishan suffered the injury after being hit by Chris Jordan’s corner and did not come to bat. It was thought that Rohit Sharma would play in it, but he was caught after hitting a wrong shot.
Tilak Verma (43) and Suryakumar Yadav (61) brought the match. But the wrong blows struck. Suryakumar and Cameron Green (30) also shared a half-century partnership. Both of them got hit wrongly and ended up in triphala. Suryakumar’s superb shot missed again and that’s where the match went away from Mumbai.
Mohit Sharma took 5 wickets for 10 runs in his 2.2 overs and threw Mumbai completely out of the contest. Mumbai Indians’ batsmen’s inability to build a big partnership was the main reason for their defeat.
