New Delhi: The day has come when it will be decided which team will face Chennai Super Kings in the final of IPL 2023 – Gujarat Titans or Mumbai Indians. The second qualifier match will be played between these two teams on Friday, May 26, in Ahmedabad. The fate and picture of this match will be in the hands of some players, whose performance will be watched by everyone. This match is Suryakumar Yadav vs Rashid Khan.

Gujarat performed strongly from the beginning of this season, while Mumbai made it to the playoffs after a fluctuating performance. Meanwhile, there was a clash between the two teams twice, in which Gujarat won first, while the next match went to Mumbai. This time the competition is bigger and more important because the ticket will be available for the final.

Who has the upper hand in Surya-Rashid?

Both the teams have some great players but the fight between Suryakumar Yadav and Rashid Khan can prove to be the most important. The reason is simple – both the players show their mettle in the middle overs of the match. The question is which of the two has the upper hand over the other? For this, statistics have to be turned and here the vice-captain of Mumbai is seen in a strong position.

In IPL history, both have faced each other in 9 innings. In this, Surya has faced 47 balls of Rashid Khan and scored 67 runs at a strong strike rate of 142.

Rashid has so far taken 25 wickets in this season. Out of this, he took a total of 6 wickets in two matches against Mumbai but could not dismiss Surya even once. Not only this season, but Rashid has not been able to hunt this stylish batsman even once till date.

Will Rashid’s magic work?

Looking at the kind of rhythm Suryakumar Yadav has seen in the last few matches, Rashid’s path does not seem easy even today. In such a situation, if Gujarat has to win, then Rashid’s 4 overs are going to be very important. During this time, if he is able to rein in Surya and return the pavilion, then the road can be easy for Gujarat.
