GT vs MI: No SKY for Mumbai Indians, Hardik prepares for MI captaincy as Shubman Gill ready for GT captaincy debut

Arguably the game of the IPL 2024, GT vs MI will have it all. Amidst all the glitter, both the teams are missing out on their ace superstars. Suryakumar Yadav is unavailable for Mumbai Indians. On the other hand, veteran Umesh Yadav will be tasked to replace the injured Mohammed Shami.

For Mumbai Indians, it will be an exciting game. New MI skipper Hardik Pandya returns to his former side. On the other hand, it will be the captaincy debut for young Shubman Gill.

It will be a strange outing for the Gujarat side. No Hardik Pandya, infact he will be leading the opponent team. Furthermore, the team has been plagued with injuries. Ace pacer Mohammed Shami is missing after undergoing a surgery on knee. Shami has been ruled out of IPL 2024 and will also miss the T20 World Cup.

The batting order looks set for GT. Shubman Gill will open proceedings with keeper Wriddhiman Saha. Ace hitter Sai Sudharsan comes in at number 3. On the other hand, the dynamic Vijay Shankar slots in at number 4.

The ever dependent, Killer-Miller and Rahul Tewatia are the finishers in the team. Rashid Khan at 7 plays out as the batting anchor. Umesh Yadav has big shoes to replace Mohammed Shami. He will be joined by Mohit Sharma and Spencer Johnson who replaces Alzarri Joseph. Noor Ahmed will form partner Rashid as the Afghani spinner duo.

Mumbai Indians Team News

It is not easy flowing for Mumbai Indians either. The 5-time champions too have been plagued with injuries. There is also a conundrum as to where Hardik Pandya will bat in their new setup. With Cameron Green being traded off to RCB, they will need a enforcer in their team.

Former skipper Rohit Sharma will open the account with keeper Ishan Kishan. The destructive southpaw Tilak Varma will bat at number 3. But there is no Suryakumar Yadav for MI in the first game. SKY continues to await medical clearance from NCA and there is a big chance that Hardik Pandya can slot in at 4.

Nehal Wadhera and Tim David will be the designated finishers as veteran Mohammad Nabi will act as the cushion in the team. Jasprit Bumrah will spearhead the pace attack with Gerald Coetzee and Akash Madhwal. Piyush Chawla will partner Nabi in the spin department.
