Gujarat Titans (GT) made a comeback in the middle overs following the dismissal of the two openers and restricted the run flow. The middle-order turbulence shattered Mumbai’s hopes of a massive total, however, Tim David at the backend was prepared for his blazing show.

In pursuit of an average total at the Brabourne, Gujarat looked in complete control throughout their innings. Openers were extremely well as they amassed 106 runs before the dismissal of the first wicket. Both Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill took the game away from Mumbai’s grasp.
However, a double-wicket over from spinner Murugan Ashwin dragged Mumbai back into the contest. More wickets fell towards the end and Mumbai needed to defend 9 runs off the final over with David Miller, Rahul Tewatia at the middle and Rashid Khan to follow.
