GT beat MI to enter IPL 2023 Final
In a high-stakes encounter at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Gujarat Titans (GT) defeated Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Qualifier 2 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. Titans emerged victorious by a commanding margin of 62 runs and marched into the final where they will face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on May 28.

Put in to bat, the Titans put up a mammoth total of 233 runs for the loss of 3 wickets in their allotted 20 overs. Shubman Gill showcased his brilliance with an exceptional knock of 129 runs off just 60 deliveries, including 7 fours and a staggering 10 sixes. Gill received support from Sai Sudharsan, who contributed a valuable 43 runs off 31 balls. Captain Hardik Pandya‘s quickfire 28 off 13 deliveries further propelled the Titans to their imposing total.

In pursuit of the target, Mumbai struggled to gain momentum as their batting lineup faltered, and were eventually bowled out for 171 runs in 18.2 overs, falling short by 62 runs. Suryakumar Yadav fought valiantly, scoring a well-crafted 61 runs off 38 balls, while Cameron Green and Tilak Varma made useful contributions of 30 and 43 runs respectively.

The Titans’ bowlers put up an impressive display, led by Mohit Sharma, who claimed an incredible five-wicket haul for just 10 runs in 2.2 overs. Rashid Khan and Mohammed Shami also made crucial breakthroughs, taking 2 wickets each, while Josh Little chipped in with a wicket.

Here is how Twitter reacted:

4 bowlers of GT have taken 93 wickets no other team’s top 4 bowlers have taken as many wickets. Such a privilage to have such quality bowlers in your team it Makes the job of captain so much easier. Back to back finals for GT?

Another example of Never Give Up- Mohit Sharma. Was not in the fray last few seasons and a net bowler for GT last season. But in just 13 matches, 24 wickets this season is a champion performance. Top 3 wicket takers all from Gujarat and they so deserve to make it to the finals.… pic.twitter.com/cJ6VxMMSZu

Namo Namo to Mohit Sharma who comes late and scalps 5 wickets in just 3 three overs. Too many match winners in one camp. GT is undoubtedly the most balanced side in IPL this season and they have shown it why. #MIvsGT #IPL2023 pic.twitter.com/ltQfOHUc91
