The second IPL 2023 qualifier will be played between GT and MI at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Both teams have arrived in Ahmedabad and will have a practice session before the game.
Gujrat Titans were the topper of IPL Points Table at group stage and had a chance to go to the IPL 2023 final by defeating CSK. However, Chennai Super Kings overcame them with a strong team performance. Every participant, whether bowler or batsman, gave his all. Raturaj and Conway provide a terrific start with the bat, and they limit GT with a solid bowling lineup.
Shubman Gill and Rashid Khan were the only players to score more than 20 runs. Although GIll scored 42 runs, but he was struggling as GT was losing wickets on the other end.
At the same time, Mumbai Indians reached qualifier two by getting a clean victory against LSG. Mumbai set a big total of 182 runs with the help of great batting by SKY and Cameron Green and a great finish by Nehal Wadhera.
Akash Madwal single-handily destroyed the batting lineup of LSG. He took a five-wicket haul by taking key wickets.
Mumbai Indians are confident after this win and hoping they will qualify by beating GT.
