In a high-stakes IPL 2023 Qualifier 2 encounter between the Gujarat Titans (GT) and Mumbai Indians (MI), the five-time champions found themselves in a precarious situation after losing Tilak Varma in the powerplay.

Losing opener Wadhera early and witnessing Cameron Green retire hurt, MI suffered another setback when their captain, Rohit Sharma, fell victim to a poor shot selection. However, young talent Tilak Varma launched a blistering assault, smashing a scintillating 43 runs off just 14 deliveries before his departure.
