Here's Mumbai Indians’ predicted XI against Gujarat Titans
Openers: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk)
Rohit Sharma has been a giant of a player in world cricket. Be it in the international arena or Indian Premier League, he has taken top-quality attacks to the cleaners and stamped his authority on the cricket field. Talking about the IPL, the veteran batter has featured in 238 matches and racked up 6070 runs at a strike rate of 129.73.
However, Rohit has been dismal with his outings of late. In his last five games in IPL 2023, the 36-year-old has managed to score just 12 runs. He would look to make amends and bring his A-game into play in the clash on Friday.
When it comes to Ishan Kishan, he is known for playing an aggressive brand of cricket and has provided crackling starts to Mumbai Indians. The wicketkeeper-batter has featured in 11 games in the ongoing season and plundered 335 runs at a strike rate of 142.55.
Middle Order: Suryakumar Yadav, Nehal Wadhera, Tim David
India has produced many match-winners in the T20 arena but there has been hardly anyone of the calibre of Suryakumar Yadav. He has obliterated bowling attacks with his 360-degree stroke play and has piled on runs for fun. The ace batter has shown his class in the 16th IPL edition and hammered 376 runs in 11 outings at a dazzling strike rate of 186.13.
Besides Suryakumar, Mumbai have the services of Nehal Wadhera and Tim David in the middle order. Nehal has been brilliant with the bat in the ongoing season and accumulated 183 runs in nine games at a strike rate of 147.58. He would look to carry on the good work for Rohit Sharma & Co. in the upcoming game.
Talking about Tim David, the 27-year-old has put up an exhibition of his power-hitting might and dismantled bowling attacks at will. He has displayed his prowess in the IPL arena time and time again and smashed 366 runs in a total of 20 matches at a stunning rate of 185.79.
All-rounder: Cameron Green
Mumbai Indians left no stone unturned to sign a young budding Australian cricketer named Cameron Green at the IPL 2023 auction and spent a whopping sum of INR 18.5 crore. Green has repaid the faith of the franchise and set the 16th IPL edition ablaze with his superb performances.
Green has taken the attack to the opposition right from ball one and put the bowling attacks under the pump. He has made 11 appearances for the five-time IPL champions thus far and smashed 274 runs at a strike rate of 149.72, which includes two half-centuries.
Besides his batting might, Green has been a handy contributor with the ball and bagged six wickets in 11 matches. The team management would hope that the Australian all-rounder light up the forthcoming game with his exploits on the cricket field.
Bowlers : Chris Jordan,Jason Behrendorff, Akash Madhwal,Piyush Chawla, Kumar Kartikeya
MI have gun overseas pacers in Chris Jordan and Jason Behrendorff in their repertoire. Jordan has been a bankable name in the T20 circuit and bagged 316 wickets in 303 games at an economy of 8.60. He would look to put his best foot forward in the forthcoming game.
Talking about Behrendorff, the Australian pacer has rattled batters with his swing and his side with provided timely breakthroughs. Besides Jordan and Jason, Mumbai have Akash Madhwal in the mix. Madhwal has been a consistent performer in the domestic arena and has shown glimpses of brilliance in the cash-rich league.
In the spin-bowling department, Mumbai have Piyush Chawla and Kumar Kartikeya in the mix. Piyush has been MI’s wrecker-in-chief with the ball and bagged 17 wickets in 11 games in the 2023 season. Talking about Kartikeya, he has done a decent job with the ball and kept the run rate in check. He would be eager to impress with his outings in the upcoming game.

Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Nehal Wadhera, Cameron Green, Tim David, Chris Jordan, Piyush Chawla, Kumar Kartikeya, Akash Madhwal, Jason Behrendorff
