Toss prediction: GT to win the toss and bowl first
With half the tournament done and dusted, the focus for all the teams has shifted to the points table and the Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans are looking at it very differently. A huge game for Mumbai Indians if they want to stay in the playoff race, and for Gujarat Titans another opportunity to pull away from the rest.

GT vs MI match preview
Gujarat Titans have just continued the form they showed in the previous edition and have looked like one of the few well-balanced sides from the start of the competition. Saying that they too have been inconsistent in the last 5 games as they have won 3 games but followed up each win with a defeat. They will want to muster up a much more consistent run in the competition so that it does not hamper their form. The form of Hardik Pandya and the emergence of Noor Ahmed and Mohit Sharma will be a huge boost for the team going forward.

Probable IX: Wriddhiman Saha(w), Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya(c), Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma
Just when things started looking good for the Mumbai Indians, they are halted. Losing the game to Punjab Kings would have hurt, as they looked like they would easily finish the game. In spite of the loss, the coming back in form of Surya Kumar Yadav will be a huge boost for the Mumbai Indians. Cameron Green is finally finding himself at home, with crucial performances with both bat and ball. They will look forward to a lot more of this because a squad which such talent is not expected to perform the way they have up till now. They will look to regroup and register a win against the Gujarat Titans.

Pitch and expected weather conditions
The Narendra Modi Stadium looks to have slowed down, with batting getting extremely tough in the second innings. With just the second evening game to be played here, there is still uncertainty over how the pitch will behave.
It will be extremely humid, but as it is an evening game it will get cooler in the evening as the match goes along.
GT vs MI Dream11 prediction
Dream11 prediction for this match:
- Wicket-keeper(s): Wridhiman Saha, Ishan Kishan
- Batter(s): Shubhman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Surya Kumar Yadav
- All-rounder(s): Hardik Pandya, Cameron Green
- Bowler(s): Mohammed Shami, Piyush Chawla, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmed
- Recommended captain: Shubhman Gill
- Recommended vice-captain: Cameron Green
There are some high-quality players taking the field in this encounter, and with the majority of them in form, it is difficult to decide who gets into your Dream 11 team. The impact sub-rule does not make your job any easier too.
The batsmen are in really good form, with all of them in the such great form it boils down to looking at the surface and keeping the conditions in mind. All batsmen are not only great players of pace but equally adept to spin, which will be crucial as the pitch will get slower. The slower bowlers are expected to pick up a lot of wicktes compared to the pacers.
We would recommend having Shubman Gill as your Captain, as not only he is in brilliant touch but also has an impeccable record at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Cameron Green should be your pick for Vice Captain as not only he will contribute with the bat, but also chip in with crucial wickets with the ball.
Match prediction: Gujarat Titans to win
Gujarat Titans just seem to have that X factor which will push them over the finish line. With such a great management and captain duo, the players play with a sense of freedom and express themselves which reflects in their performances.
Toss prediction: Gujarat Titans to win the toss and bowl first.
With uncertainties over how the pitch will play in the evening, and whether or not dew ill play a role in the match, Gujarat Titans will want to bowl first after winning the toss. They are a fantastic chasing team and will back themselves, irrespective of the total.
Man of the match prediction: Shubhman Gill
Shubhman Gill has been in amazing form coming into this IPL, and with the Narendra Modi Stadium being his absolute favourite surface to bat on, we feel he will have a big inning against the Mumbai Indians.
Gujarat Titans are placed at 1.80 and Mumbai Indians at 2.10. Gujarat Tintans are clear favourites to win this game, as they are playing at home and are also the inform team in the competition.
