Gujarat Titans vs Mumbai Indians T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Match 5 of the 2024 Indian Premier League sees Gujarat Titans take on Mumbai Indians at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on March 24th. Gujarat Titans won the group stage but were beaten in the Final last season with Mumbai Indians finishing in third place. Read on as we preview this match which begins at 19:30 local time on Sunday.

Gujarat Titans very nearly made it two Championships out of two tournaments in the IPL and there is no doubt that their strong squad of players will be very competitive once again in 2024. But they start this season with zero points and this will not be an easy clash against Mumbai Indians.

Mumbai Indians lost just two of their final seven group stage games last season and plenty of pundits are expecting them to be challenging at the top end of the table and to be in the knockout stages this season. They certainly have the quality and depth across their squad to get off to a winning start.

GT vs MI Match Toss Prediction

There is a 14-13 split in terms of IPL matches won batting first or second at this venue. With the humidity rising a little in the second innings, we predict that both captains will want to field first.

GT vs MI Pitch Report

This looks like being a typical Narenda Modi Stadium pitch with something for all types of bowlers but plenty of bounce and pace for the batters to also post a big score.

Ahmedabad Weather Report

By the time this match gets underway, the temperature will have dropped to the early thirties from highs of 35-36 degrees. Humidity levels are not expected to exceed 50% across the game.

GT Team News & Playing 11

GT Team News

A big loss for Gujarat Titans, and to the tournament as a whole, is top wicket taker Mohammed Shami who picked up 28 dismissals last season. However, apart from his absence, the Titans look set to be at full strength for this their opening match of IPL 2024 as they begin life under the captaincy of Shubman Gill.

GT Key Players

  • Shubman Gill- the right-handed top order batter came into the Test series with England with plenty calling for his place to be questioned. However, he responded with some brilliant innings.
  • Sai Sudharsan- the 22 year old left-hander made his ODI debut for India in December of last year and top scored in the 2023 IPL Final with 96 runs from 47 balls.
  • Rashid Khan- the Afghanistan spinner recently returned to fitness after a back injury but was immediately at the top of his game with figures of 3/19, 4/14 and 1/12.
  • Mohit Sharma- the 35 year old right-arm medium fast bowler took two IPL wickets from 2019 – 2022 but then produced 27 dismissals in the 2023 IPL.

GT Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Kartik Tyagi, Sai Kishore, Abhinav Manohar, Jayant Yadav, BR Sharath

Jayant Yadav is an experienced and accurate off-spinner and could well be used if the Titans want to bolster their spin attack in this game. BR Sharath has previously hit half-centuries in T20 cricket and will be a useful addition as a batter if required.

GT Team Form

Gujarat Titans won five of their final eight matches in the 2023 tournament but lost the crucial games in the play-offs.

MI Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

Hardik Pandya has switched from Gujarat Titans to Mumbai Indians and has taken the captaincy armband with him and it will be very interesting to see him against his former team-mates in this match. Dilshan Madushanka and Gerald Coetzee are both expected to miss this opener.

MI Key Players

  • Suryakumar Yadav- the flamboyant right-handed top order batter has averaged over 43 in both of his last two IPL campaigns and will be a danger for Gujarat Titans for the duration of his innings in this match.
  • Hardik Pandya- the skipper has the ability to win this game with both bat and ball. He has hit over 2300 IPL runs with a top score of 91.
  • Jasprit Bumrah- the right-arm pace bowler is another player who was in fine form during the India v England Test series earlier this year and he is expected to be one of the top bowlers in this campaign.
  • Piyush Chawla- the spinner beat his previous best IPL wickets tally (16 in 2008) in the 2023 season. He was still as accurate and arguably harder to face 15 years later.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Akash Madhwal, Arjun Tendulkar, Nehal Wadhera, Vishnu Vinod, Shams Mulani

Arjun Tendulkar’s pace and bounce could be very useful on this pitch so it would be no surprise if he is brought in when Mumbai Indians are in the field. With the bat, Vishnu Vinod would seem an obvious and reliable pick for additional runs.

MI Team Form

Mumbai Indians finished the tournament in very strong form last season and will be looking to carry that into this game.

MI Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Hardik Pandya (c), Romario Shepherd, Mohammad Nabi, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Gopal, Piyush Chawla

This promises to be a fascinating fixture with the prospect of Hardik Pandya captaining his new side against his old team one which captures the interest of any fan of IPL cricket. We expect him to be a critical player in this game, alongside Suryakumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Priyush Chawla. Our prediction is for Mumbai Indians to beat Gujarat Titans.
