MI vs GT – Match Predictions

Gujarat Titans have been extremely hard to beat this season. They had hammered MI earlier this season and have a stronger side on paper. Their bowling unit is significantly better than that of Mumbai Indians.

Probable 6s

Mumbai Indians have the likes of Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Verma, Tim David, Nehal Wadhera and Cameron Green. Titans have Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya, David Miller and Vijay Shankar but they haven’t been a six-hitting side. MI have struck 96 sixes in 11 games compared to 73 by GT.

Our prediction: Mumbai Indians to hit most sixes in the match at 6/5 (2.20).

Probable Wickets

Mohammed Shami has taken 19 wickets in the season from 11 matches at an economy of 7.23. Shami should enjoy bowling at the Wankhede with the new ball. Back him to be GT’s top wicket-taker at 13/5 (3.60). Piyush Chawla has picked 17 wickets¬† this season at 7.46 economy. Bet on Chawla to be the top bowler for MI at 11/4 (3.75).

Our prediction: Mohammed Shami to be Gujarat Titans’ highest wicket-taker at 13/5 (3.60).

Man of the Match

Our prediction: Shubman Gill to be the Man of the Match at 13/2 (7.50).

MI vs GT Preview

GT have almost qualified for the playoffs but this is a crucial contest for MI as a loss here puts them in a must-win situation. Here’s a look at two teams ahead of their encounter on Friday.

Mumbai Indians
