In the 57th match of IPL 2022, the Mumbai Indians and the Gujarat Titans will face off on Friday, May 12, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The Mumbai Indians will be looking to avoid a repeat of their previous encounter with the Titans, where they were soundly beaten.
In preparation for this match, the journalist has made some transfers to their IPL Fantasy team. They have made two regular transfers and one uncapped transfer, bringing in Hardik Pandya and Shubman Gill in place of Jos Buttler and Andre Russell. They have also added Abhishek Sharma as their uncapped transfer, despite other options being available.
The journalist believes that the surface at the Wankhede Stadium will be more batter-friendly, and as a result, Rashid Khan may not have the same impact as he did in the previous match. They are expecting a big performance from Hardik Pandya, who has yet to have a POTM-winning performance this season. Shubman Gill, who came close to scoring a century in the previous match, will also be looking to make an impact.
The journalist lists five players who are good captaincy options for this match: Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Shubman Gill, Mohammed Shami, and Hardik Pandya. They also provide a list of other players who may be worth considering for future matches.
Overall, the journalist has kept their transfers fairly simple and believes that the Mumbai Indians will be looking to redeem themselves after their previous loss to the Titans.
