GT had defeated MI by 55 runs when the two sides met earlier in the season in Ahmedabad. In the last match between the two sides, Suryakumar Yadav scored his maiden T20 century. For GT, opener Shubman Gill is in sensational form with the bat, having scored back-to-back centuries earlier in the season and is just 9 runs short of possibly becoming the youngest winner of the IPL Orange Cap.
In the bowling department, while GT pacer Mohammad Shami is leading the Purple Cap table with 26 wickets, MI’s Akash Madhwal produced the best-ever bowling figures in a Playoffs match – claiming 5/5 against Lucknow Super Giants in Eliminator.

R Ashwin vs MS Dhoni
The master and his student will be up against each other in the RR vs CSK clash on April 27. Ashwin is a find of CSK and Dhoni. The offie learnt the tricks of the game from Dhoni who guided him from behind the stumps during his initial days at CSK. It will be great to see Dhoni take on spin challenge posed by Ashwin.

David Warner vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

Arshdeep Singh vs KL Rahul
LSG captain KL Rahul will have his task cut out vs left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh. Rahul has had issues against the swinging ball from left arm pacers in the recent past. It will be fascinating to see how Rahul goes against Arshdeep in LSG vs PBKS clash on April 28.

‘New Yorker King Is Here,’ Twitter Can’t Keep Calm As Arjun Tendulkar Bowls ‘Perfect Yorker’ To Dismiss Prabhsimran – Watch
Arjun Tendulkar, son of Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, has been impressing his teammates with his ability to bowl yorkers during his practice sessions. Despite spending the last two seasons on the bench for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL), the franchise has been releasing videos of Arjun practising his Yorker game. His hard work and dedication have paid off as he has been hailed as the “Yorker King” of the team by his teammate Tilak Varma.

During a recent match against Punjab Kings, Arjun demonstrated his skill by delivering an absolute toe-crusher to dismiss Prabhsimran Singh in the seventh over of the innings. The perfect yorker went right in the blockhole, leaving the batter unable to get his bat down in time. Arjun broke into a loud appeal, and the umpire immediately raised his finger. Although Prabhsimran opted for a review, UltraEdge showed no spike as the ball passed the bat. The impact was in front of middle, and the ball-tracking showed that it would crash into the base of the stump.
That was beauty from Arjun Tendulkar!

Arjun’s teammates congratulated him on his second wicket in his IPL career. The 23-year-old was elated but remained humble, tapping captain Rohit Sharma’s back, smiling, and giving him a thumbs up. This was Arjun’s second wicket in three appearances for Mumbai Indians. In his previous game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, he had dismissed Bhuvneshwar Kumar with a fuller delivery, where Rohit had taken the catch at cover to complete the dismissal.
Despite his impressive performances, Arjun has been keeping a low profile and working hard at the nets. He has been opening the attack for Mumbai Indians and has conceded only five runs in his overs. His dedication and focus on improving his skills have earned him the respect of his teammates and the admiration of cricket fans worldwide.
Tendulkar’s hard work and dedication to improving his bowling skills have made him a valuable member of the Mumbai Indians team. His impressive performance in recent matches demonstrates his potential to become a star in the world of cricket. As he continues to work hard and hone his skills, the future looks bright for this young cricketer.

Sachin’s legendary career
During his splendid career spanning over twenty years, Sachin faced many injuries and at many points it looked like his career would be finished, but the legend always cameback to win hearts of fans and silenced his critics in style.
“Tennis elbow was really bad. I tried everything that I could: Taking an injection, numbing this in the morning before the Test match. But nothing worked and the only option was to get operated. I was pushed in the corner so badly. All my physio friends and doctors tried but then certain things needed to be done to get back on the field,” Sachin had recalled during an interview.
“I realised after my surgery that I wasn`t able to pick up a cricket bat. I was really depressed. I would call my friends at 2 a.m., 4 a.m. saying c`mon, let`s go for a drive as I can`t sleep. And they would join me. Of course, at home Anjali was there who`d constantly be telling me that you know the good things that have happened in your life, focus on those things,” Sachin had said.
“I thought my career was finished, it was done. And all I would pray to God was: Please don`t stop my career like this, let me get back on the field again. That feeling… I remember after 4.5 months we played an ODI match against Sri Lanka in Nagpur. I can never forget that feeling. I looked up and thanked God for that moment. This is all I wanted,” he had said.
Arjun’s domestic career
During his formative years, Arjun Tendulkar received coaching from Atul Gaikwad, a coach based in Mumbai who played a significant role in his development. More recently, the left-handed cricketer was observed training under Yograj Singh, a former Indian cricketer who has since turned to acting and is the father of the legendary Indian all-rounder, Yuvraj Singh. In September 2022, Arjun underwent two weeks of training under Singh to prepare for the JP Atray Memorial Cricket Tournament.
MI vs PBKS Predicted Playing 11: Will Jofra Archer Return To Mumbai Indians’ Team For Punjab Kings?
Mumbai Indians (MI) are going to take on Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Match 31 of IPL 2023 with two important points at stake. MI are coming into this match on back of three-match winning spree. Rohit Sharma and Co found the winning combination after going down vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the first two matches of the competition. MI then beat Delhi Capitals (DC), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to bounce back in style. On the other hand, Punjab are coming into this match after a loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Arjun Tendulkar, a bright spot
Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar made his debut vs KKR but returned wicketless in that match. His greatest IPL moment yet came in the next match vs SRH when he successfully defended 20 runs off the last 6 balls, also picking his maiden wicket in T20 league in form of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. It is highly likely that Arjun gets to play the third successive game of the season. Not to forget, Arjun had been travelling with the Mumbai Indians camp for last two seasons. He did not get a single game in 2021 and 2022 seasons but Rohit has finally shown trust in his skills.

Will Jofra Archer return to MI playing 11?
Archer has begun to bowl in nets. As per a report in ESPNCricinfo, Archer was expected to play in the MI vs PBKS clash. Archer has ‘a little niggle’ and has not played any match since first game vs RCB on April 2. Archer says that he is nearing his fittest best and would be available for selection soon.
“Obviously the last two weeks aren’t exactly what you would hope for after being so fully active. But it’s what you expect when you’ve been off for a long time: the body’s not going to be 100 percent straight away,” said Archer. “There are going to be moments where it feels a lot more serious than it actually is. I don’t know which game will be the next game, but I’m just trying to put myself in the best position possible [to play].”
MI vs PBKS Predicted Playing 11s
MI Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Cameron Green, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Arjun Tendulkar, Nehal Wadhera, Hrithik Shokeen, Piyush Chawla, Jason Behrendoff
PBKS Probable XI: Atharva Taide, Prabhsimran Singh, Matthew Short, Liam Livingstone, Harpreet Singh Bhatia, Sam Curran, Jitesh Sharma, Shahrukh Khan, Harpreet Brar, Nathan Ellis/Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh

Arjun Tendulkar was given the task to defend 20 runs in the final over by skipper Rohit Sharma which he did impressively.
The medium-pacer bowled a tight final over, choosing to go full and wide. He also snapped his maiden wicket in the process. “It’s quite exciting to play with Arjun. Life has come a full circle,” Rohit, who shared the Indian and MI dressing room with his father – the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, said at the presentation ceremony.
“Arjun has been a part of this team for three years. He understands what he wants to do. He is quite confident as well. He is clear in his plans. He is trying to swing the new ball and bowl yorkers at the death,” Rohit added.
On his own batting, Rohit said: “It is a different role. I am trying to set the tempo. Glad to get some scores in the powerplay. I understand one of us has to bat big.”
He was lavish in his praise for another youngster – Tilak Varma, who played another impactful innings for MI. “We have a long batting line-up. We want these guys to come out and bat freely. We watched Tilak last season. We all know what he can. I love his approach. He doesn’t play the bowler, he plays the ball. We will see him play for a lot of teams.”

Tendulkar on Tuesday took to Twitter to express his gratitude for wishing Arjun on his IPL debut.
Thank you, Abhishek…and this time, a Tendulkar opened the bowling instead of batting. Also, you were probably the first one to face his bowling when we used to play below our building!
Thank you, Zak! Your words mean a lot to me and hold a special place for Arjun as they come from one of the most skilled left-arm fast bowlers that India has ever produced.
Thank you from a dad, dad-i!
Thanks Yuvi. Who better than you to wish a left-hander on his debut…he has always looked up to you!
