Updated - May 6, 2022 5:36 pm
Gujarat Titans are all set to take on the Mumbai Indians in Match 51 of IPL 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium. The Hardik Pandya-led side suffered their second loss of the season against Punjab Kings but are still at the top of the points table with 16 points in 10 games. They will be looking to stick with the same combination from the previous game despite the loss.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians finally managed to pick up their first win of the season in the previous game against the Rajasthan Royals and they might be looking to try out their bench strength in the remaining games as they have nothing at stake now. Tim David coming good in the previous game will be a huge plus as he provides them with the finishing role while the inclusion of Kumar Kartikeya was a blessing as well.
Venue: Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai
Date & Time: May 6, 7:30 PM

The previous game at the venue saw the score of 170 being chased down easily and the short boundaries will also help the batters as well. The team batting first will have to post a big score to be in the game and hence, the skipper winning the toss is likely to bowl first.

Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the Match: Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya has been in really good touch this season but missed out in the previous game where he could manage just one run off seven deliveries. The right-hander has already accumulated 309 runs in nine games for the Gujarat Titans and has played some match-winning innings as well. He will be looking to step up with the bat for his side again.
Probable best bowler of the Match
Mohammed Shami has been fantastic with the new ball for the Gujarat Titans this season and has picked up 15 wickets in ten games this season already. The right-arm seamer has been providing breakthroughs with the new ball but he did go for a few in the last game which he will be looking to improve on.
