MI vs GT IPL 2023

Mumbai beat table-toppers Gujarat by 27 runs, reclaim third spot

Surya Kumar Yadav shone with 103 not out off 49 balls as Mumbai Indians defeated Gujarat Titans by 27 runs at Wankhede Stadium on Friday. Meanwhile, Rashid Khan’s all-round effort — 4 for 30 with the ball and unbeaten 79 off 32 with the bat — went in vain. Earlier, Suryakumar’s knock guided MI to 218 for 5 in 20 overs. After getting an invitation to bat first, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan provided a flying start to MI but Rashid Khan dismissed both the batters in one over to bring GT back in the game. The Afghanistan spinner returned a four-fer but failed to restrict MI to a low total due to Suryakumar’s unbeaten century. GT skipper Hardik Pandya had won the toss and opted to

Swashbuckling Suryakumar Yadav dazzled with his maiden IPL ton as Mumbai Indians brushed aside table-toppers Gujarat Titans by 27 runs in a one-sided affair at Wankhede stadium on Friday. It was Mumbai’s fourth consecutive 200-plus score as a near-perfect win helped them reclaim the third spot on the points table.

An in-form Surya once again lit up the Wankhede as his breathtaking effort helped Mumbai notch up their seventh win of the season. After a sizzling 83 in the last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, the local boy Surya took his innings a notch higher, firing a stunning 103 not out off just 49 balls.

Madhwal comes from around the wicket. SIX! Miller smashes the first ball over wide long-off for a maximum. Two singles to follow as Miller swings the ball to deep midwicket and then Tewatia steers to deep third. Miller heaves again across the line and just gets one. Tewatia dances down the track but only manages to thump it down the ground for a single. Hundred up for GT in 11.5 overs. Miller swings and misses as Madhwal strays on the pads. There is a subdued appeal for LBW and given out by the umpire! Miller reviews it immediately. Four reds on the screen and Madhwal gets his third wicket.

Kumar Kartikeya comes to bowl the final over and he starts with a wide. Rashid Khan then smashes the spinner for three sixes in the next four balls. Chris Jordan then drops Rashid in the fifth ball but the batter don’t take any run. 

The spinner then bowls a wide and the final ball ends with a dot. Gujarat Titans reach 191/8 in 20 overs as Mumbai Indians win the contest by 27 runs. Rashid Khan finishes unbeaten on 79 off 32 balls.

Rashid Khan is introduced in the attack. He starts with a dot before Ishan Kishan rotates the strike. Rohit then sweeps a googly by Rashid towards the square leg region. 

The MI skipper attempts a similar shot but an excellent effort by Vijay Shankar near the square leg ropes saves it from resulting a boundary as Rohit runs double.

There is a LBW appeal against Rohit in the over but the umpire isn’t interested. Pandya opts for review but TV replay confirms the ball was drifting down the leg stump. MI: 51/0 (5 overs)
