IPL 2023: MI start with 2 consecutive defeats, GT unbeaten – Hardik and Rohit on opposite sides in Qualifier 2

He is a five-time IPL champion. Mumbai Indians are one of the most consistent teams in the IPL. Although his start this year was not good at all. Rohit Sharma had to face defeat in the beginning. However, as the tournament progressed, Suryakumar Yadavra started to see the face of victory. Naturally, it cannot be said that Mumbai Indians were in consistent form in this tournament.

There was a time when there was disagreement over making the playoffs. However, he flared up towards the end of the tournament. This has opened the way for them to reach the playoffs. RCB lost to Mumbai in the playoffs. Rohit Sharma booked the playoff ticket with 16 points from 14 matches.

But he is in excellent form at the moment. Rohit Sharma’s team was on the backfoot at the start of the group stage. At the end of the group stage and in the playoffs, Mumbai is also playing cricket. Many people are surprised to see such a change in Rohit’s team. However, Gujarat Titans are ahead in the second qualifier match. Who was in excellent form in the group stage. But coming to the playoffs, Hardik Pandya’s team lost its rhythm to some extent.

Gujarat Titans have made it to the playoffs by winning 10 out of 14 matches. But in the first qualifier match of the playoffs, Hardik Pandya’s team had to face defeat against Chennai Super Kings. No one could accept the defeat of last year’s champions like this. But it goes without saying that the Chipok pitch was largely responsible for the defeat in that match.

Which was seen in the Mumbai Indians vs Lucknow Supergiants match. There too Mumbai scored big runs when they came to bat first. Not only this, the condition of Krunal Pandias is similar to that of Gujarat. Later, Lucknow had to get down to bat for just 101 runs. But no other team wants to think about Chip. Because the pitch of Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad is completely different. As a result, both the teams are going to think about the next match.

Now it has to be seen whether Mumbai can beat Gujarat again and make it to the finals with Chennai. Whether he manages to beat Mumbai and make it to the IPL finals twice in a row or not, it will be a matter to be seen now. However, these two teams have met twice in this year’s IPL. And Mumbai won one of them. And Gujarat won the other one. They have met thrice in the history of IPL. On the other hand, Rohit Sharma’s team is leading by winning 2 matches. But now it has to be seen whether these figures will come in handy in the second qualifier match.
