Riding on Shubman Gill’s fantastic century and Mohit Sharma’s five-wicket haul, Gujarat Titans made their way to another final after winning the IPL trophy in their inaugural season. The defending champions won the second qualifier against Mumbai Indians by a comprehensive margin of 62 runs, even though the five-time winners were keeping pace with the chase for quite a while. They lost Ishan Kishan before the innings began, and impact sub Nehal Wadhera was out first over, falling to Mohammed Shami.
The Indian pacer struck again, as Rohit Sharma miscued his pull to fine leg. Tilak Varma came out and scored at a brisk rate, careening 24 runs off a Shami over. However, he was knocked over by Rashid in the final over of the PowerPlay. MI were buoyed by Cam Green and Suryakumar stitching a promising partnership before Josh Little knocked over the lanky Aussie. From there onwards, the chase went downhill as Mumbai Indians bowed out of IPL 2023.
