GT vs MI match preview

Gujarat Titans (GT) and 5-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) will be up against each other in the fifth match of this season’s Indian Premier League (IPL). The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will host the contest.

The Titans made their IPL debut back in 2022 and went on to become champions after beating the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the final. Last year, they again played in the final, but lost to MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

MI, on the other hand, won the IPL title 5 times and jointly hold the record of most titles by a team in the history of the T20 league. Under Hardik Pandya, they will be looking to make a flying start to the tournament.

The upcoming GT vs MI prediction is expected to be an exciting one since both teams have some of the world’s best cricketers.

Gujarat Titans

The Titans have gone through a few changes from their last campaign. Hardik Pandya is not their captain anymore and it is Shubman Gill, who will lead the Titans in the upcoming edition of the T20 league. The Titans also would not be having the services of their premier fast bowler Mohammed Shami.

Shami has not played any form of cricket since the World Cup due to issues with his leg. He won the Purple Cap last year after he picked up 28 wickets. Sandeep Warrier, in the meantime, has been named as his replacement.

The GT vs MI prediction will depend a lot on how Shubman handles the pressure of leading the Titans.

Gujarat Titans Possible 11: Shubman Gill (C), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Sai Sudarshan, Vijay Shankar, David Miller, Azmatullah Omarzai, Shahrukh Khan, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, Umesh Yadav, Kartik Tyagi

Mumbai Indians

MI are going through a transition phase after Rohit Sharma was removed as the skipper of the franchise. They traded in Hardik Pandya from the Titans and made him the captain. Having led the Titans to victory back in 2022, it remains to be seen how he takes over from Rohit.

Suryakumar Yadav will miss the game after he failed to recover in time. As per reports, Suryakumar did not get clearance from the National Cricket Academy (NCA).

Hardik’s addition to the team has strengthened both their batting and bowling. The likes of Tim David, Tilak Varma. and Romario Shepherd add more firepower to the team.

The outcome of the GT vs MI prediction will depend heavily on how Hardik steps up as the skipper of the champion team.

Mumbai Indians Possible 11: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Varma, Nehal Wadhera, Tim David, Hardik Pandya (C), Romario Shepherd, Gerald Coetzee, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Gopal, Piyush Chawla

Pitch report and expected weather conditions

Playing conditions will be pleasant as there is no chance of rain for the time being. Temperatures will be around the 26-degree Celsius mark. The humidity will be on the lower side. Wind gusts of 28 km/h will be there.

The pitch at the venue in Ahmedabad is not expected to be an absolute belter. But teams should try and score around the 160-run mark to give the opposition a run for their money.

Gill played some stupendous knocks in Ahmedabad last time around. Spinners will also have their role to play and hence, the focus will be on the likes of Rashid and Piyush Chawla.

GT vs MI Dream11 prediction

Our GT vs MI Dream11 predictions for this match:

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Ishan Kishan
  • Batter(s): Rohit Sharma, David Miller, Shubman Gill, Tilak Varma, Sai Sudharsan
  • All-rounder(s): Hardk Pandya, Azmatullah Omarzai
  • Bowler(s): Jasprit Bumrah, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad
  • Recommended captain: Shubman Gill
  • Recommended vice-captain: Rashid Khan

We have picked Shubman Gill as captain keeping in mind the form he showed last year. He won the Orange Cap after he smashed 3 hundreds and 4 fifties. After scoring nearly 900 runs, Gill was on top of his game without a doubt. Now it remains to be seen how he bats with the added responsibility of captaincy.

Rashid Khan was the joint second-highest wicket-taker in the IPL last season. He picked up 27 wickets and was among the pick of the bowlers for the Titans. Rashid is in brilliant form after he became the Player of the Series against Ireland for picking up 8 wickets from 3 matches. He also climbed 4 places in the latest ICC Rankings for T20 bowlers.

GT vs MI match prediction: Mumbai Indians to win

As per the GT vs MI match prediction, Mumbai Indians will have an upper hand going into the next game, although they would be playing away from home. The Titans need to put their best foot forward.

GT vs MI toss prediction: Mumbai Indians to win the toss and field first

As per the GT vs MI toss prediction, teams should opt to field first after winning the toss. However, MI would not mind defending scores as well as they have the bowling to restrict oppositions.

Player of the Match prediction: Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah has been a brute force in limited-overs cricket as he can bowl Yorkers at will and outthink batters with his clever change of pace. He recently bowled brilliantly in the Test series against England where he also attained the No.1 Test rankings.

Bumrah, without a doubt, will be a strong contender to win the Player of the Match award. Shubman Gill, Rashid Khan can also win the award given their potential.

Gujarat Titans vs Mumbai Indians betting odds

  • Gujarat Titans: 2.06
  • Mumbai Indians: 1.76  

It is not a surprise that the GT vs MI betting odds is titled heavily in favour of the Mumbai-based team. The Titans do not have Hardik Pandya and Mohammed Shami, and that has depleted their team to some extent.
