Pitch Report: A relatively high-scoring game beckons with there being little help on offer for the bowlers. The batters will look to attack from the start despite there being some swing on offer for the pacers. The spinners will have to be clever with their lines and lengths to make the most out of the pitch. Wickets in hand will be key, with both teams likely to prefer batting first upon winning the toss.
Both the teams are playing for the first time against each other as Gujarat is a newcomer this season.
There is no injury news till now from both teams.
Hardik-led Gujarat Titans are the most successful franchise of this season. In their very first season, the Titans have impressed everyone with their stunning performances. Hardik has been phenomenal since the start of the season while Shubman Gill, David Miller, and Rahul Tewatia also are in good touch. They just need a single win here to steal the first spot in the playoffs of this season. Will they be able to overcome against Mumbai Indians here on Friday?

Mumbai Indians are in a situation where they have nothing to lose from here on. The most successful franchise of the tournament has managed to grab only a single win in nine games so far and is officially out of the tournament. The news from the franchise is that Tymal Mills is out of the tournament due to an injury while South Africa batsman Tristane Stubbs replaces him in the squad. Debutant Kumar Kartikeya bowls brilliantly for Mumbai in the last game as he concedes only 19 runs in his four overs spells and also picked up a wicket. Will they grab their second win? or will face a hard challenge by the most successful team of the season.
