GT vs MI: Live Score and Update
GT vs MI: GT move the second spot on the table!
The five-time champions never showed up tonight. The defending champions have put up another dominant performance and moved to the second spot on the table. They followed-up their terrific batting effort with an superb show with the ball. They never let MI batters get away keeping a firm hold on them. In the end they take the game by 55 runs.
GT vs MI: Noor delivers the Killer blow
Noor Ahmed gets rid of Suryakumar Yadav. This was flat and spun away from middle, Suryakumar goes back and punches it back to Noor Ahmad. Is this the game for Gujrat Titans? It should surely be not much batting left now. And they need to chase 96 runs in the last 5 overs. MI are 112/6 after 15 overs!
Noor Ahmed strikes twice!
First, it was right-handed Rashid Khan and now the left-handed version of Rashid Khan strikes. He has removed the two tall giants of the MI batting order. First, he knocked over a set Cam Green and then got Tim David off a full toss. Mumbai Indians are falling like bowling pins here. MI 59/5 after 11 overs.
GT vs MI: GT in total control at the halfway stage!
Ever Since the 71-run stand, It has been GT who has been bossing the game. They kept Mumbai quiet in the powerplay and their spinners are not allowing Mumbai batters to free their arms and play those big shots. They were pegged by Rashid’s double strike. He first ended Kishan’s struggle and then removed the in-form Tilak Varma. The required rate is 15 RPO now. MI are 58/3 after 10 overs. They need 150 more runs.
GT vs MI: GT off to a solid start!
The bowlers have been on point since the first ball. They have not allowed Mumbai Indians to run away. They have kept things tight. Mumbai need to take their chances and score as they are chasing a mountain. MI 29/1 after 6 overs. They need 179 runs from 84 balls.
Skipper gets Skipper!
Rohit Sharma gives himself some room and Hardik follows him. He looks to tuck it around the corner but closes the face off the bat too early and ends up getting a leading edge. Hardik Pandya grabs a easy catch and completes a caught and bowled over his opposite counterpart. MI 4/1 after 2 overs.
GT vs MI: Manohar-Miller helps GT cross 200!
77 runs from the last 5 overs! The death bowling woe for Mumbai indians continue. They gave away 96 in the last game against Kings. Gujrat Titans have ended with 207/6 at the end of 20 overs. A big chunk of appreciation would go to Abhinav Manohar and David Miller who put up a 71-run stand in just 35 balls. Tewatia played a handy cameo in the last couple of overs!
The target for Mumbai Indians is 208 runs from 120 balls. This total will be stiff to chase. They have the fire-power to chase it but they are up against one of the strongest bowling line-up. If you are a MI-fan, KKR chased 205 on this same pitch in an afternoon game without dew. Can MI replicate the effort with the bat?
Nobody gets it right!
Meredith misses the Yorker, and Manohar misses the timing! It was a full-toss a Manohar selected the wrong shot. He failed to get the distance and departs but not before playing a blinder. A true gem of an inning he has played to bail Gujrat out of trouble. They look good to cross 200 now. They are 191/5 and have 6 legal deliveries in hand!
GT vs MI: Gujrat continue to attack!
Gujrat Titans continue to attempt those big hits even after losing wickets. The good things Miller and Manohar are timing them well and clearing the ropes comfortably. This frenzy has gotten GT 80 runs in the middle phase with the scoring rate being around 9 RPO in the middle phase. They have set themselves for a strong finish and have Tewatia and Rashid in the shed. GT 130/4 after 15 overs… Can they cross 180?
Another one caught in the deep!
Another tossed-up delivery and tempting the batsman to hit it. Shankar accepts the invitation and clears his front leg to go over long-on but only manages to loft a dolly for Tim David to catch. No power, No elevation, just a poor shot! Chawla with his second wicket of the night. Gujrat Titans are 4 down now at the score of 101 in the 13th over.
Gill holes out!
Shubman Gill cries out in anger! He is disappointed with himself! He didn’t do much wrong there, the ball was pitched in slot and was there to hit. Gill was eyeing to go over long-on and just didn’t get enough bat on it. SKY grabs another catch in the deep and Kumar Kartikeya gets the big wicket!
GT vs MI: Gill continues on his merry way at the halfway mark!
Shubman Gill notches up a 30-ball fifty. This is his third fifty of the season. The wicket of his skipper and the odd turning isn’t holding Gill back as he is timing the balls to the boundary. Vijay Shankar is joining the act and he took Kartikeya for a four and a six in the 10th over. GT are 84/2 after 10 overs, and they would look to get atleast 175 from here.
STAT: Titans have the lowest scoring rate in the middle phase (overs 7 – 15). They only score at a run rate of 7.4.
A good first over for Chawla!
Only 5 runs and the wicket of Hardik Pandya! With GT taking attack to the Mumbai bowlers, Rohit summoned his best bowler of the season. He delivered what the skipper needed on the very first ball of his spell. Hardik Pandya decided to take the leggie on with a powerful loft but fails to get the elevation. SKY takes a good catch at long-off. Gill with a disgusted look from the non-striker’s end
Titans 55/2 after 7 overs.
GT vs MI: Gill steps on the gas as GT maximise powerplay!
Gujrat Titans got off to an cautious start once again. Arjun Tendulkar struck in the third over to strangle Saha down the leg. Gill stepped up in the 5th over after sensing a need to push the scoring rate. He took down Cam Green for 16 runs in last over of the powerplay. The pitch is looking sticky but if you time the ball like Shubman Gill, you can surely earn runs on this surface!
GT 50/1 at the end of the powerplay.
GT: Joshua Little, Dasun Shanaka, Shivam Mavi, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Srikar Bharat

This season, both teams have played six games. This season, the Titans have won four games, while Mumbai has won three. The Titans occupy the 4th position whereas the Mumbai Indians are in the 7th place in the table.
In their last game, the Titans pulled off a robbery by protecting only 135 runs against a strong batting order from the Lucknow Super Giants. On the same day, Mumbai Indians fell 13 short of the Punjab Kings’ total of 214.
The surface at Narendra Modi Stadium is well-balanced. It is predicted to suit pacers at first, but spinners are likely to enter the picture as the game progresses. On the surface, anything over 175 will be a nice total.
