THE LOWDOWN

GUJARAT TITANS

  • Gujarat Titans agonisingly missed out on retaining their IPL title which they won in their maiden year of competition, losing dramatically to Chennai Super Kings off the final ball of the 2023 final.
  • The Titans have been forced to rebuild in preparation for their third IPL season after captain Hardik Pandya departed to re-join Mumbai Indians, but overseas superstar Rashid Khan remains and following a long period of injury, he should play here for Gujarat.

MUMBAI INDIANS

  • Mumbai Indians made a pair of monster moves in the off-season to ensure they are contending for the title in this year’s IPL, trading Australian all-rounder Cameron Green to RCB for money and replacing him by bringing back Hardik Pandya from Gujarat, where he had been their skipper.
  • The carrot dangled to persuade the India all-rounder into returning to his former franchise was the Mumbai Indians captaincy, which Hardik has inherited from Rohit Sharma, a move which understandably divided fans, with Rohit having led Mumbai to five IPL titles.

THE PREDICTION

Although the pedigree of Gujarat Titans in the IPL across their two years of existence so far has been extremely strong with consecutive appearances in the final, there are significantly more question marks regarding the team this year. The importance and magnitude of Hardik’s departure cannot be understated. Not only was he an excellent leader for the Titans, his ability with both bat and ball helped balance the side perfectly, which they may struggle with this time around. For Mumbai Indians though, the benefits of Hardik’s return are clear to see on paper and the expectation is that both he and his team will put that into practice here. Back a Mumbai Indians win.

TIP: MUMBAI INDIANS TO WIN
