On 26 May 2023, Mumbai Indians (MI) locked horns with Gujarat Titans (GT) in qualifier two of the ongoing IPL at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. However, Shubman Gill has been in great form throughout this season. In the last three matches, he smashed two centuries. So, all eyes were on him once again. Speaking of the match, Rohit Sharma won the toss and asked GT to bat first.
At the toss, Rohit said: “We are gonna chase. The pitch looks a little sticky. We can make best use of the pitch. The pitch will get better as the game goes on. It’s our comfort, what we want to do. We’ve chased well this season. This is a different team, we have a lot of new faces in the squad. As a team, we’ve come across many situations like this. It’s important to put your best foot forward. There were a bit of nerves at the start of the tournament, but it’s settled now. Just one change. Shokeen misses out, Kumar Kartikeya comes in.”
Shubman Gill is now leading the race for the Orange Cap this season
While Hardik said: “We would have bowled as well, but it’s okay. Knockouts and qualifiers are fun, you have to be on your A game. It’s important to enjoy. If we can play our everything, we’ll be satisfied irrespective of the result. I know how the crowd is going to support us. Gujarati people are loyal. (Will you bowl?) Yeah, full throttle. Two changes. Josh Little and Sai Sudharsan come in for Shanaka and Nalkande.” For GT, Shubman Gill came out to bat along with Wriddhiman Saha.
But, it was another spectacular night for Gill as he smashed 129 runs off 60 balls, including seven fours and 10 sixes. He notched up his third IPL ton off just 49 balls. After this knock, he has now scored three centuries in the last four innings. Finally, GT scored a mammoth total of 233 runs off three wickets in 20 overs.
Here is how fans have reacted to the century of Gill against MI:
