Gujarat Titans are currently locking horns with Mumbai Indians in the 35th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 on Tuesday, April 25th at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
However, during the toss, Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma confirmed the news that Riley Meredith replaced Jofra Archer due to illness with their captain opting to bowl first.
“We are gonna bowl first. We saw the pitch yesterday, it was hard. They put a lot of water there. Want to make best use of the conditions since we think there’s going to be a bit of moisture.”
“Start well early on and see where the game is heading. Games like that happen (loss against PBSK), we made some errors and we accepted that in the changing room. It’s important how you come back from that situation and what you’re going to plan for the next few games, that’s quite critical.”
“We had a good chat and hopefully we can turn things around. We’ve got 2 changes – Hrithik Shokeen misses out from the last game. Kumar Kartikeya is going to play. Jofra is not well. Riley Meredith is back.”
