GT vs MI Head-to-head Stats

Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians have played four matches against each other. The two teams have shared the spoils, as both have won two games each. 

It was a high-scoring affair at the Narendra Modi Stadium when these two teams last played against each other. The Gujarat Titans batted first in the game and were led by a brilliant effort by Shubman Gill. He scored 129 runs from 60 balls and laid the platform for a big total. Hardik Pandya played a cameo and helped GT reach a mammoth total of 233 runs in their 20 overs. 

Mumbai Indians had a weak start to their chase, but Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma kept the team in the hunt. However, their efforts were not enough, as they reached 171 in their 20 overs and lost the game by 62 runs. 

One of the prime cast members of that drama, Hardik Pandya, will now lead the Mumbai Indians. GT, under their new leader, Shubman Gill, will be eager to avenge their last defeat, while MI will try to gain the lead in the face-off.

GT vs MI Fantasy Cricket Tips

Gujarat Titans Heavy Fantasy XI

  • If you are backing the Titans to win the game, batters like Shubman Gill, B Sai Sudharsan, and Kane Williamson could be good picks. 
  • Rashid Khan is back and will be a prime choice from the bowlers' section. Without Mohammad Shami, the Titans will depend on Umesh Yadav and Kartik Tyagi to lead their bowling attack. 
  • Azmatullah Omarzai and Shahrukh Khan could be different choices from the Titans. 

Mumbai Indians Heavy Fantasy XI

  • Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma, and Tilak Varma will be the key batters for the Mumbai Indians in this match. If you are backing MI to win the game, you need to keep two or all three of these batters in your fantasy XI.
  • Jasprit Bumrah will lead the MI bowling unit. He will be the team's prime bowler and should be a must-pick in your fantasy XI. You can also go with Piyush Chawla, who guarantees a wicket in most games.
  • If Romario Shepherd is part of the playing XI, he could be a differential choice. Hardik Pandya has the best knowledge of the GT camp and will be a precious player for MI in the game. He might emerge as a game-changer and a highly rewarding choice for fantasy XIs.
