He fell for 61 runs.

- 22:51 (IST)
- 22:24 (IST)GT vs MI Live Score: Rohit, Green's fightbackCameron Green and Rohit Sharma are looking to score quickly and against Hardik Pandya, they decided to take chances. Two boundaries came from both batters but a nasty hit on the hand means that Green's innings was halted for a bit. Will he bounce back? MI 17/1 after 1.5 overs.
- 21:43 (IST)GT vs MI Live Score: FOUR!Sai Sudharsan finally manages to play a scoop shot over the short fine leg fielder. However, Benrendorff still manages to finish the over with only 7 runs in it. A mini comeback for Mumbai Indians one can say, but the damage Gill has done is actually very big. Two more overs to go for Gujarat Titans in the innings.
- 21:37 (IST)GT vs MI Live Score: Shubman Gill is out!16.5 - It was turning out to be a good over from Akash Madhwal and he has made it further better with the wicket of Shubman Gill. The GT opener has flicked the ball into the hands of deep mid-wicket fielder and departs for 129 runs off only 60 balls. His innings included 7 fours and 10 sixes.
- 21:30 (IST)GT vs MI Live: Kishan gets injured, walks out of groundAfter the end of the 16th over, Ishan Kishan went towards Chris Jordan to console the bowler with a pat on his back. However, Jordan could not see Kishan crossing him and his left hand his the wicketkeeper on his left eye. The injury was not a minor one as Kishan walked out of the ground and Vishnu Vinod replaced him behind the stumps. The match continues!
- 21:20 (IST)GT vs MI Live: SIX, FOUR, SIX - Gill continues to fire!Shubman Gill is hurting Mumbai Indians badly. This is too early to predict, but he might kill the game in the first innings itself. Gill hit Cameron Green for a six on the third ball of the over and followed it with a four a six. 19 runs came off the over. Tonight, one would want to be anything but not an MI bowler for sure!
- 21:16 (IST)GT vs MI Live: Century for Shubman Gill!14.1 - A single and with it, Shubman Gill races to his third century in IPL 2023 in 49 balls. What a form this is! He is middling everything that is coming onto his bat. He has already crossed 800 runs this season and holds the Orange Cap. This is definitely a breakthrough season for Gill. Though he was already a proven star, this season is going to give him a new stature.
- 21:12 (IST)GT vs MI Live: GT in the driving seat!Nine runs came off Chris Jordan's second over. Sai Sudharsan hit a six on the third ball of the over. With 6 more overs remaining in the game, thinking a total of anything less than 200 would be a crime for Gujarat Titans. They have two set batters in Gill and Sudharsan and both are playing really well, especially Gill.
- 20:53 (IST)GT vs MI Live: What a shot!10.2 - It was slightly fuller from Cameron Green and Sai Sudharsan has played a beautiful cover drive on it for a four. This is smart and controlled batting from Sudharsan. He knows the value of his wicket and the range of his shots really well. Mumbai Indians badly need a breakthrough as Gujarat Titans are bossing this game right now.
- 20:50 (IST)GT vs MI Live: Fifty for Shubman Gill!9.3 - A single and there is the 19th IPL fifty for Shubman Gill. It is the fifth for him this season. It is worth noting that he has crossed the 50-run mark seven times in IPL 2023 but he has converted two into centuries. This is some form to boast for the Indian youngster, who is the Orange Cap holder currently.
