Ahmedabad. Gujarat Titans bowler Mohit Sharma said his strategy of not experimenting in front of Suryakumar Yadav proved effective in the second IPL qualifier against Mumbai Indians.
Gujarat Titans defeated five-time champions Mumbai by 62 runs in the second qualifier and entered the final. Mohit said 2. He took five wickets for 10 runs in 2 overs. Mohit said after the match, “I am lucky to have got five wickets.” Later, the ball was slipping and Surya and Tilak were at the crease and it seemed that the match would be lost.
Tilak Verma scored 43 runs in 14 balls and Suryakumar scored 61 runs in 38 balls, but after their dismissal, the Mumbai team was bowled out for 171 runs in 18.2 overs.
Mohit, who won the Purple Cap in 2014 with Chennai Super Kings, started his second innings with the Titans after recovering from a back injury. He could not take the IPL contract in 2021 and 2022.
He turned the dice of the match yesterday by taking the important wicket of Suryakumar. There was no worry of taking too many shots. This strategy was successful.
