Talking Points

Gujarat Titans bowling trio, Mohammed Shami, Mohit Sharma, and Rashid Khan, ruled the roost last season. However, with Shami ruled out of the IPL 2024, the onus falls on the other 2 bowlers to keep the opponents in check.

Yuzvendra Chahal is expected to make batters dance to his leg spin mastery to clinch the purple cap. And his partner in crime, Kuldeep Yadav, is entering the league with some top-notch form.

With his fiery pace and toe-crushing yorkers, Mumbai’s bowling spearhead, Jasprit Bumrah, is back to trouble batters. Moreover, Bumrah will have the company of Gerald Coetzee to add more firepower to the bowling attack of MI.
