Ishan Kishan suffered a freak eye injury after colliding with teammates Chris Jordan. Kishan did not open the inning for MI, with Nehal Wadhera taking the spot. Vishnu Vinod has been spotted warming up, and has been named as a concussion sub for Kishan. However, MI brought in impact player Wahdera in place of Akash Madhwal.
The decision to open with Wahdera backfired, as he was dismissed by Mohammed Shami in the first over itself after making a 3-ball 4. MI suffered another blow as Cameron Green suffered a bad blow to the shoulder and had to be retired out. Green faced only three balls and made just four runs before Hardik Pandya’s delivery left him in bad pain. Shami took the big wicket of skipper Rohit for a knock of 8 in seven balls.
Earlier, GT posted a massive total of 233 on the board, with Shubman Gill scoring a brilliant knock of 129 in just 60 balls. Gill scored his third IPL century in the last four games. He is only the third player and second Indian after Virat Kohli (2016) to score three or more centuries in a season. Jos Buttler also achieved the feat in the 2022 season as he helped the Rajasthan Royals (RR) reach the final.
Vishnu Vinod has been spotted warming up, and it looks like he will be a concussion sub for Kishan.
