Mohit Sharma got five wickets, and the Gujarat Titans beat the Mumbai Indians by 62 runs at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Qualifier 2 of the IPL 2023 on Friday, May 26. This put them in the final on Sunday, where they will play MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings.
As the Gujarat Titans batted first, Shubman Gill crushed the MI bowlers on his way to his third IPL century of the season. Gill played like he was in great shape. He hit seven fours and ten sixes on his way to 129 runs and a century in 49 balls.
Sunil Gavaskar, an Indian cricket legend, said that the captain of the Gujarat Titans (GT), Hardik Pandya, has been very amused by the leader of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), MS Dhoni. Gavaskar also said that Hardik has a great chance to show how quickly he has learned how to be a leader during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 final.
“Like everyone else who has watched MSD’s journey, Hardik has been very open about how much he likes and respects him. When they go to the toss, they will be very nice and smiling and all that. But when it’s time for the game, the mood will be very different. He told Star Sports, “It’s a great chance for Hardik Pandya to show how quickly he has learned.”
He brings a sense of calm to the team that reminds me of MSD: Gavaskar
“When he was captain for the first time last year, nobody knew what to expect because he has been one of the most exciting and excited cricket players as well. But we’ve seen how excited she gets over the past year. He brings a sense of calm to the team that makes me think of MSD. This is a happy team, and we see the same thing with CSK. “Hardik deserves a lot of praise for that,” he said.
In the IPL 2023 final on May 28 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, GT will play CSK. After beating the Mumbai Indians by 62 runs in Qualifier 2 on Friday, the Gujarat Titans won their spot in the final for the second year in a row. In Qualifier 1, Chennai beat GT by 15 runs and moved on to their 10th IPL final.
