New Delhi, The manner in which the Mumbai team is moving towards the finals, it seems that now it is the most dangerous team of the season. Chennai and Mumbai There are only two teams this season who have won four out of the last five matches. Chennai has already made it to the finals and now Mumbai is one step away from this point.

What is the hidden message in Mumbai’s victory?
The Mumbai team has won 8 out of 14 league matches this season. If we add the victory in the Eliminator, then the number of his victory becomes 9. Now remember the star players of this 9 match. Mumbai won the first match against Delhi this season. Rohit Sharma was the man of the match in that match. Mumbai won the next match against Kolkata but Venkatesh Iyer of the opposing team got the Man of the Match in that match. The next win was against Sunrisers Hyderabad, whose star was Cameron Green.
Yashasvi Jaiswal was also the man of the match in Mumbai’s win against Rajasthan. Ishan Kishan was the man of the match against Punjab and Suryakumar Yadav against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Suryakumar Yadav was the man of the match in the next match as well. Cameron Green became the man of the match in the match against RCB. Akash Madhwal got this title in the Eliminator. Means out of 9 wins, 2 times the title went to the account of the opposing team, Surya and Cameron Green got the title 2-2 times… In the remaining 3 matches, different players won.
Take a look at the team’s record
Cameron Green has scored 422 runs in this season. Tilak Verma scored 300, Suryakumar Yadav scored 544, Ishan Kishan scored 454 and Rohit Sharma scored 324 runs. These figures show how it is not a difficult task for Mumbai to touch or cross the 200-run mark in the 20-20 format. Out of this, the strike rate of Cameron Green, Tilak Verma and Surya Kumar Yadav is also more than 150. Let us also tell you that Mumbai Indians have crossed the 200 mark 6 times in the matches played so far this season. Out of this, he has won five times. This is the alarm bell for Gujarat.
Gujarat shines on the basis of selected players
The Gujarat team secured the first position after the league matches in this season. There was consistency in his game. But the trouble is that that consistency was not of Gujarat but of Shubman Gill. Gill has scored 722 runs this season. After him, Vijay Shankar has scored the maximum 301 runs for the team. Which is less than half of them. That is, after Shubman Gill, other batsmen are performing only average. Same story in bowling. Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan are in tremendous form. But apart from these two bowlers, the performance of other bowlers is average.
Mohammed Shami has taken 26 wickets this season while Rashid Khan has taken 25 wickets. The performance of these three players against Chennai was not bad, but the match was not winning either. Shami took 2 wickets by giving 28 runs, Rashid took 1 wicket by giving 37 runs. Shubman Gill also scored 42 runs. In such a situation, the rest of the players of the team should have taken the responsibility of getting the victory. But this did not happen because this is not happening in the whole season. This is the headache of Gujarat.
