Mumbai Indians are presently in the 4th position in the IPL 2023 points table and Gujarat Titans are in the 1st position. The defending champions have won 5 out of their last 6 matches and look extremely lethal.

In this article, we take a look at 3 vice-captain choices for the MI vs GT game which will take place in Mumbai:

1. Shubman Gill (Gujarat Titans)

Shubman Gill

The year 2022 has Shubman Gill written all over it. The flamboyant batter has been firing on all cylinders and has been a force to reckon with in the top-order of Gujarat Titans. He scored an unbeaten knock of 94* runs in the previous of GT versus Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).

If GT bat first then Shubman Gill is sure to hog the limelight once again and it is safe to make him the vice-captain of your fantasy team.

2. Surya Kumar Yadav (Mumbai Indians)

Surya Kumar Yadav

The batter of MI scored 83 runs in just 35 balls in the game versus Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) a few days back and set the entire stage on fire. Yadav is a must-have in your fantasy team as he can simply blow away the opposition bowlers with his whirlwind knocks.

In 11 games so far in this edition of the IPL, Surya Kumar Yadav has mustered 376 runs. He is a key player in Rohit Sharma’s team in this MI vs GT game.

3. Mohammad Shami (Gujarat Titans)

Mohammad Shami

As the Wankhede pitch traditionally favours pace, Mohammad Shami will be a useful player in your fantasy team in this MI vs GT game. He has so far in IPL 2023, taken 19 wickets and is 2nd in the list of most wickets in this edition.

The 32-year-old pacer can bowl the tight line and lengths and put the under-performing Rohit Sharma under pressure. He can also bowl the short balls and dismiss Ishan Kishan. Notably, the short balls have been Ishan Kishan’s Achilles heel.

Mohammad Shami has an excellent average of 16.37 and has an exceptional economy of 7.23 in the ongoing IPL.
