After being asked to bat, MI openers Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan got their team off to a great start as they added 61 runs for the first wicket off 37 balls. Their partnership was broken by Rashid Khan who dismissed both Rohit (29 off 18) and Kishan (31 off 20) in the seventh over of the innings.

Suryakumar Yadav stitched a 65-run stand with Vishnu Vinod (30 off 20) off 42 balls for the fourth wicket. Mohit Sharma brought his side back into the game by breaking the partnership and getting Vinod out before he could hurt Titans more.

Following his dismissal, Suryakumar Yadav played one of the best knocks of his career and brought up his maiden IPL hundred scoring 103* off 49 balls smashing 11 fours and six sixes in his innings. MI posted a massive total of 218/5 on the board. It was Rashid Khan who returned with impressive bowling figures of 4/30 in his four-over spell.

Coming on to bat, Gujarat got off to a miserable start as they lost their in-form batter Wriddhiman Saha in the second over itself with Akash Madhwal getting him out Leg Before Wicket (LBW). Captain Hardik Pandya also couldn’t do much and departed after scoring 4 off 3 in the third over.

Gujarat were in deep trouble as Madhwal returned in the fourth over and destroyed the stumps of Shubman Gill (6 off 9). Vijay Shankar (29 off 14) also lost his stumps against Piyush Chawla to leave his team reeling at 48/4 in 6.1 overs.

David Miller (41 off 26) and Rahul Tewatia (14 off 13) kept their team’s hopes alive with a 45-run stand off 29 balls. However, after their dismissals on consecutive deliveries, Gujarat were reduced to 100/7 after 12.1 overs. Rashid Khan rose to the occasion and played a blistering knock of 79 off 32 balls clobbering three fours and ten sixes in his innings. However, it was not enough as Mumbai Indians won by 27 runs.

Following their win, Mumbai climbed to the third spot on the points table with 14 points to their name while Gujarat maintained their top spot with 16 points.
