There are only two matches left in the Indian Premier League (IPL), one of which will take place today (May 26) between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Mumbai Indians (MI) in the second qualifier. GT lost to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 15 runs in the first qualifier, while five-time champions Mumbai beat Lucknow Super Giants by 81 runs in the Eliminator. The match between GT and MI will be played in Ahmedabad. The final match will also be played in this stadium. Let’s take a look at the court and venue statistics at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad ahead of the match between GT and MI.
Launch Report – GT vs MI
The pitch used for this match is the least used strip. With the temperature reaching 43 degrees Celsius in Ahmedabad, the gardeners have kept the pitch covered for a few days to prevent it from breaking abnormally. In such a situation, it is expected to be a racing festival here with this new type of field. The average first-inning score at this venue this season has been 187. Additionally, over 200 points have been chased once at this field.
Will the draw become the boss?
In such knockout matches, the performance of the teams matters and the draw will not matter so much today. Both teams have done exceptionally well while chasing this year. Both GT and MI have won six of nine matches while chasing. There is also very little chance of dew at this ballpark. In such a situation, both captains would be thinking about the team’s plans rather than the draw.
