New DelhiThe way the Mumbai team is moving towards the final, it seems that now it is the most dangerous team of the season. Chennai and Mumbai are the two teams of this season who have won four out of the last five matches. Chennai has already reached the final and now Mumbai is one step away from this stage. The way Mumbai has won the last two matches, it is also a danger bell for Gujarat. His match against Sunrisers Hyderabad was very important.
Mumbai achieved the target of 201 runs in 18 overs and won by 8 wickets. After this, he defeated Lucknow by 81 runs in the Eliminator match. There is a hidden message in Mumbai’s victory for Gujarat. If Gujarat fails to read this message, it will be in trouble.
What is the hidden message in Mumbai’s victory?
The Mumbai team has won 8 out of 14 matches of the league this season. If we add the win in the eliminator, then his number of wins becomes 9. Now remember the star players of this 9 matches. Mumbai won the first match this season against Delhi. Rohit Sharma was the man of the match in that match. Mumbai won the next match against Kolkata but in that match Venkatesh Iyer of the opposing team got the man of the match. The next win was against Sunrisers Hyderabad, whose star was Cameron Green.
Yashasvi Jaiswal was also the man of the match in Mumbai’s win against Rajasthan. Ishan Kishan against Punjab and Suryakumar Yadav was the man of the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Suryakumar Yadav was the man of the match in the next match as well. Cameron Green became the man of the match in the match against RCB. Akash Madhwal got this title in Eliminator. That is, out of 9 wins, 2 times the title went to the account of the opposing team, Surya and Cameron Green got the title 2-2 times… Different players won the remaining 3 matches.
Have a look at the team records
Cameron Green has scored 422 runs this season. Tilak Verma scored 300, Suryakumar Yadav scored 544, Ishan Kishan scored 454 and Rohit Sharma scored 324 runs. These figures show that it is not a difficult task for Mumbai to touch or cross the 200-run mark in the 20-20 format. Out of this, the strike rate of Cameron Green, Tilak Verma and Surya Kumar Yadav is also more than 150. Let us also tell you that in the matches played so far this season, Mumbai Indians have crossed the 200 mark 6 times. Out of this, he has won five times. This is an alarm bell for Gujarat.
Gujarat shines on the basis of selected players
After the league matches in this season, the Gujarat team secured the first position. There was consistency in his game. But the problem is that that continuity was not of Gujarat but of Shubman Gill. Gill has scored 722 runs this season. After him, Vijay Shankar has scored the highest 301 runs for the team. Which is less than half. That is, after Shubman Gill, the second batsman is performing only average. Same story in bowling. Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan are in tremendous form. But apart from these two bowlers, the performance of other bowlers is average.
Mohammed Shami has taken 26 wickets this season while Rashid Khan has taken 25 wickets. The performance of these three players against Chennai was not bad, but the match was not winning either. Shami took 2 wickets by giving 28 runs, Rashid took 1 wicket by giving 37 runs. Shubman Gill also scored 42 runs. In such a situation, the rest of the players of the team should have taken the responsibility of winning. But this did not happen because this is not happening in the whole season. This is the headache of Gujarat.
