His magnificent innings of 129 runs off just 60 balls powered Gujarat Titans to a mammoth total of 233/3. Sai Sudharsan’s contribution of 43 runs off 31 balls provided valuable support to Gill’s heroic display.
In response to the daunting target of 234, Mumbai Indians faced early setbacks, losing Impact Player Nehal Wadhera, who opened the innings with Rohit Sharma due to Ishan Kishan’s injury, caught behind off Mohd. Shami’s bowling. The situation worsened when Cameron Green had to retire hurt after being struck on the elbow by a short ball from Pandya. Despite efforts from Suryakumar Yadav and Vishnu Vinod, Mohit Sharma’s spell of 5/10 dismantled Mumbai Indians’ batting order. Gujarat Titans bowled out Mumbai Indians for 171, sealing their place in the IPL 2023 final.
Earlier, after winning the toss, Mumbai Indians opted to bowl and made one change, bringing in Kumar Kartikeya. Gujarat Titans made two changes, with B Sai Sudharsan and Vijay Shankar replacing Dasun Shanaka and Darshan Nalkande.
Gujarat Titans had a strong start with openers Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill adding 53 runs for the first wicket. Gill’s exceptional strokeplay was on full display as he consistently found the boundary. Despite Piyush Chawla’s wicket-taking prowess, Gujarat Titans posted an imposing total, thanks to Gill’s exceptional form.
Overall, Shubman Gill’s sensational century and Mohit Sharma’s exceptional bowling display were the key factors that secured Gujarat Titans’ convincing victory over Mumbai Indians in the thrilling IPL 2023 Qualifier 2 match
