Mumbai Indians, winning the toss, decided to bowl first.

“We’ve decided to bowl first, considering the track looks decent and might improve with dew. It’s great to be back, especially in Gujarat where I’ve had significant success and received immense support—very thankful for that. My cricket journey started in Mumbai, so it feels special returning. The team’s been preparing for nearly two weeks, full of eagerness to perform. We’ve had excellent practice matches and sessions, and everyone’s looking sharp. The squad’s balance feels right, with four quicks, three spinners, and seven batters, ensuring we’re well-prepared in all aspects. “

Hardik Pandya Skipper

” I’m truly excited to captain in a stadium filled with so many personal memories. Our fan support over the last few seasons has been a key strength, giving us incredible backing. Arriving a week early, I participated in a practice match and sessions, finding everyone in great form and fitness. Today marks the debut for GT of Umesh bhai, Spencer, and Omarzai, with several newcomers, like Sushant from the U-19s and Sai Sudharsan, expected to debut later this season. Everyone’s showing promising form in our recent sessions.”
