IPL 2023: Harbhajan and Finch reveals why Gujarat Titans are favorites

IPL 2023: Aaron Finch reveals the reason why Gujarat Titans are favorites

In a highly anticipated encounter, the five-time IPL champions, Mumbai Indians, are set to face off against the defending champions, Gujarat Titans, in the penultimate match of the season. With both teams boasting an array of potential match-winners, the stakes are high as they vie for a spot in the summit clash against Chennai Super Kings on Sunday (May 28).

Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh attributed Mumbai Indians’ dominance in the tournament to the leadership of captain Rohit Sharma. Singh praised Rohit for his approachability and humility, stating, “Rohit Sharma is a very chilled-out captain. He is a very approachable captain even for the youngsters. He loves spending time with uncapped players and shows a lot of respect to the senior players. This humility makes Rohit a great player.”

Despite their loss to Chennai Super Kings in the first Qualifier, Gujarat Titans will be heading to their stronghold in Ahmedabad for the second Qualifier. Singh highlighted the presence of senior Indian pacer Mohammed Shami as a key factor that makes GT a formidable opponent, even for a team like Mumbai Indians. Singh commended Shami’s skills as a new-ball bowler and his ability to deliver lethal yorkers in the death overs.

Singh emphasized GT’s fortune in having a player of Rashid’s caliber in their ranks.

Former Australian cricketer Aaron Finch lauded Rashid Khan as a “world-class” bowler and credited captain Hardik Pandya for his astute captaincy and resource management. Finch also highlighted GT’s well-balanced fast bowling attack as a key strength.
