MI vs GT, Qualifier 2: The IPL 2023 qualifier match between Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans will be played today. In this match, both the teams would like to win by winning the final ticket, but it will not be that easy. In the current season, on one hand, the Gujarat team has shown a great game, while on the other hand, Mumbai Indians have a great record in the playoff matches. In such a situation, a close fight can be seen between the two teams. Experts have already said that Ahmedabad’s pitch is a batting pitch. In such a situation, there is a possibility of a high scoring match. But in such a situation, the bowlers of the team will bowl well and the team will have the upper hand in this match. In such a situation, the bowlers will be tested in this match, not the batsmen.

Mumbai’s figures are spectacular –
Although this match is to be played at the home ground of Gujarat Titans, but the figures are in favor of Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians. Let us tell you that the team of Mumbai Indians has not lost any match in the playoffs since 2017. In 2017, the team was defeated by Rising Pune Supergiants in Qualifier-1. However, even after this, Mumbai managed to win the trophy. After that no one could beat Mumbai Indians in the playoffs. After 2017, Mumbai has managed to reach the playoffs in 2019, 2020 and in the current season 2023. Meanwhile, the team has played 7 matches of the playoffs and won all of them. The team has made it to the Qualifier-2 of this season by defeating Lucknow Supergiants by 81 runs.

Excellent record under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma-
The team of Mumbai Indians, playing under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, has become champion for a record 5 times. Even though the team performs poorly in the league stage matches, it is in lethal form as soon as the team enters the playoffs. Under Rohit’s captaincy, the team has so far played 14 IPL playoffs, winning 11 of them. If we talk about the IPL finals, then Mumbai has been successful in reaching the finals 6 times and the team has won the IPL trophy 5 times. In such a situation, the mistake of taking Mumbai lightly can cost Gujarat heavily.

Great chance for both the teams
Both Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans have a great chance to enter the final of IPL 2023. On one hand, Mumbai Indians will be eyeing to win their sixth IPL trophy, while on the other hand, Gujarat team would like to reach the finals and win the trophy for the second time in a row.
