Hardik Pandya-led defending champions Gujarat Titans lost by 15 runs to 4-time champions CSK in Qualifier Round-1 of the playoffs. Now once again the team has got a chance to advance to the finals. Playing at home this time may give Gujarat team extra strength.
Shubman Gill, who has scored 722 runs in 15 matches at an average of 55.53 with 2 centuries and 4 fifties, can pose a threat to the Mumbai Indians bowlers. Meanwhile, Vijay Shankar, who has made some useful contributions with 301 runs in 12 games, may also challenge. Both of them put a lot of pressure on the opposition bowlers in the final part of the league round. However, they failed to make an impact in the qualifying round-1 match held in Chepauk. Due to this, the Gujarat team chasing the target was left unscathed.
