GT and MI have played three times in the IPL with Mumbai Indians leading 2-1 in head-to-head count. Both teams won at their respective home venues earlier this year. MI is the much more experienced side when it comes to playing in IPL knockout matches. He has won five titles and is looking for his sixth.

His batting seems his suit stronger than his bowling. However, credit must be given to the team for reaching the final without their two main bowlers. Jofra Archer and Jasprit Bumrah. Chris Jordan replaced Archer and did his job perfectly in the last game. Akash Madhval has been fantastic in recent games for IM. Along with Jordan, Jason Behrendorff has been good all season taking wickets inside the power play.
Having beaten LSG comprehensively in the Eliminator, the Mumbai Indians should look to back the same team in Qualifier 2 against GT.

Rohit Sharma (C)
Rohit will open the batting. He scored a crucial half-century against SRH in the last MI league match, but was unable to replicate his form. He scored just 11 of 10 balls. The MI skipper has scored 324 runs on the season with two fifties. Before the last game, he had bat problems all season.
