Bowling will have to improve in the death overs
To stay in the race for the playoffs, Mumbai Indians will have to save themselves from bowling badly in the death overs. In the match against Gujarat, Mumbai Indians will have to overcome this weakness. Mumbai has bowlers like Arjun Tendulkar, Jason Behrendorff, Cameron Green and Jofra Archer, but their performance has been quite disappointing. In the last matches, he has looted a lot of runs in one over. Arjun Tendulkar had looted 31 runs. In such a situation, players will have to refrain from looting more runs. At the same time, experienced spinner Piyush Chawla and his young partner Hrithik Shokeen bowled well. Mumbai’s batting has looked strong in the matches so far. Captain Rohit Sharma and Ishaan Kishan give a good start to the team, while Suryakumar Yadav is also returning to form, which will strengthen the Mumbai team. Apart from these, all-rounders Green and Tim David have also made useful contributions with the bat. If we talk about playing in front of Gujarat, then the Gujarat team has a strong bowling attack, due to which the Mumbai batsmen will have to play very carefully.
Gujarat’s bowling improved
It is noteworthy that till now the Gujarat bowlers were criticized for not defending the score this season but against Lucknow Supergiants, they successfully defended their low score by bowling brilliantly in the death overs. The hero of Gujarat’s victory was veteran Mohit Sharma, who was adjudged player of the match. Chasing a target of 136 runs in this match, Lucknow scored 105 runs for one wicket in 14 overs but Gujarat was able to win the match due to Mohit’s brilliant bowling.
Mohit successfully defended 12 runs in the last over. While Mohit has done exceptionally well for Gujarat, the experienced Mohammed Shami has also left no stone unturned in taking wickets. Captain Hardik Pandya, however, has not been able to show amazing with bowling so far and only one wicket has been recorded in his name so far. Gujarat’s spin attack, led by Rashid Khan, is also strong and includes Afghanistan wrist-spinner Noor Ahmed and veteran Jayant Yadav. In the last match, Jayant conceded only seven runs in his last two overs while Noor Ahmed took two wickets for five runs in his last two overs.
In batting, Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill have been contributing well in the top order while skipper Hardik Pandya top-scored in the last match. However, Gujarat needs to perform well in the middle overs. For this, it would be right to send David Miller to bat in the upper order.
