GT vs MI, IPL 2024: Who is Naman Dhir making his debut for Mumbai Indians vs Gujarat Titans?


Punjab batter Naman Dhir is set to make his Indian Premier League (IPL) debut for the Mumbai Indians (MI) against the Gujarat Titans (GT) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday.

Dhir was part of the victorious Punjab team that lifted the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in 2023 and also scored two hundreds, against Saurashtra and Gujarat, in the Ranji Trophy.

The 24-year-old hard-hitting batsman had a fantastic Sher-E-Punjab T20 Cup 2023, scoring 466 runs at a strike rate of 192.56 including 30 sixes.

He was also a part of the DY Patil T20 Cup, scoring a fifty for Reliance 1 with eight fours and one six in a game against Jain Irrigation.

Dhir, who bowls off-spin, bowled the tenth over of the Gujarat Titans innings, conceding 13 runs.

After Ishan Kishan fell for a duck in the first over of the chase, Dhir scored three boundaries and a six off the bowling of Azmatullah Omarzai.

The young batter’s cameo was cut short by Omarzai in his next over, using the help of a DRS review to trap him in front for 22 off 15 balls.
