GT versus MI IPL Live Score 2024: Gujarat Titans vs. Mumbai Indians: Hardik Pandya’s first game as captain of the team ended in a six-run loss on a day when the Ahmedabad fans continuously jeered him. This was Mumbai Indians’ 12th consecutive loss in the IPL opening match. MI needed 19 runs to win the final over as they chased a goal of 169 after Rashid Khan and Mohit Sharma put pressure on them. With two balls down, Pandya struck for a six and a four while on strike. Umesh Yadav, though, struck back, getting rid of Pandya with the third ball and taking another wicket with the next.

MI lost two wickets in the first over, but Dewald Brevis and Rohit Sharma turned things around. In the opening over, Azmatullah Omarzai dismissed Ishan Kishan for a duck, and in the third over, he removed the powerful batsman Naman Dhir. Then, Rohit and Brevis sent the GT bowlers all over the park, putting MI back on front. After losing to Sai Kishore on 43 off 29, and ending his partnership with Brevis on 77 off 55, Rohit was unable to reach a half-century. After that, Rashid and Mohit stopped MI from scoring runs, and Brevis soon fell for 46 off 38. MI never fully bounced back from that time, and Shubman Gill went on to win his first game as GT captain as a result.

In Pandya’s maiden game as captain, MI had earlier won the toss and elected to bowl first. It appeared as though GT would score close to or beyond 200, but Bumrah’s skill limited them to a score of 168/6. Pandya decided to lead the MI assault himself, and he scored 11 runs in his opening over. Interestingly, after Luke Wood bowled the second over and gave up nine runs, he returned for the third over rather than giving the ball to Bumrah.

Then, Bumrah entered the game and used his signature yorker to get Wriddhiman Saha, the first wicket for MI. Then, spinners Piyush Chawla and Shams Mulani further halted GT’s promising start, with the former dismissing captain Shubman Gill on 31 off 22. Then, Sai Sudharsan, who scored 45 off 39 along with David Miller and Azmatullah Omarzai, gave GT some hard blows. In the 17th over, Bumrah made a comeback and dismissed Miller and Sudharsan.
