MI vs GT Highlights: Shock at the start of Captain Hardik's Mumbai tour, Gujarat wins

Captain Hardik's Mumbai

Gujarat Titans gave an unforgettable performance in the fifth match of the 2024 IPL tournament. They won against Mumbai Indians in a virtually lost match. It also virtually declared that despite Hardik Pandya leaving the team, Gujarat has not forgotten to fight. In this match, Shubman Gill's team batted first and scored 168 runs in 20 overs. In reply, Mumbai scored 107 runs for the loss of 2 wickets in 12 overs. In these circumstances, many felt that Mumbai would easily win this match. But, Gujarat's bowlers performed brilliantly in the death overs. Finally, Mumbai Indians were stuck at 162 runs. And along with that, Hardik Pandya's team had to admit defeat by 6 runs.

Although Mumbai Indians lost the match, the batting performance of former captain Rohit Sharma and South African cricketer Diebold Brevis was widely appreciated. In this match, Rohit's bat can be seen one after another. He played an important innings of 43 runs off just 29 balls. Rohit hit seven boundaries and one six in this match.

On the other hand, Diebold Brevis also gave a worthy accompaniment to Rohit. He scored 26 runs off 38 balls. He hit two fours but hit three over boundaries. A 55-ball 77-run partnership was also built between the two of them for the third wicket. But, despite standing on this strong base, Mumbai's feet are wobbly. Towards the end they started losing one wicket after another at regular intervals. Hardik Pandya scored 11 runs in 4 balls but it was not 'enough' to win the team. In the end, what happened happened.

At the end of the match, Mumbai Indians team captain Hardik Pandya said, 'Yes, we could not score 42 runs in the last five overs. But it was a day where even though the target was not too big, we could not maintain the momentum in the last 5 overs. I have always loved playing in this stadium. I like the atmosphere here. But we are not worried about this rate for now. There are still 13 matches left.'
