Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans' first training session in IPL 2024

GT will be playing under Shubman Gill, their new skipper. But, GT will be missing their star bowler, Mohammed Shami, who got ruled out of the IPL 2024 due to an injury. The team has some dangerous players like David Miller, Wriddhiman Saha, Rashid Khan, and Vijay Shankar at the lower order who can score runs when it's needed. Sandeep Warrier is also there in the squad and could play an important role for the side. The former CSK pacer and 2014 Purple Cap winner Mohit Sharma claimed 27 wickets in 14 matches in IPL 2023, finishing as the second-highest wicket-taker. He is fit to play against Mumbai and it surely will be an interesting pick. Rs 10 crore-worth Aussie pacer Spencer Johnson could also make his debut in the Indian Premier League for Gujarat. Matthew Wade is unavailable for at least the first game due to domestic duty but the good news is Rashid Khan is fit and might get selected for the first game.

MI will head into the game without their dangerous batter Suryakumar Yadav. Vishnu Vinod could play in place of him. Gerald Coetzee is not ready following a groin problem so Luke Wood could make his debut for Mumbai. Jasprit Bumrah’s return is huge for the five-time champions, and if Ishan Kishan manages to provide his side with a good start, it could get easy for them even in the worst of situations. Tim David, the Aussie all-rounder played some serious knocks last season and will be one of the most important players for the side this season too. Tilak Varma is another player to watch out for while former captain Rohit Sharma will also be there to open the inning and score some valuable runs for his side.

Possible XIs:

Gujarat Titans

Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (C), Sai Sudharsan, Kane Williamson, DA Miller, A Manohar, R Tewatia, Rashid Khan, SH Johnson, UT Yadav, MM Sharma

Mumbai Indians
