Only five months after lifting IPL title in the UAE, the Mumbai Indians will return to the field to defend their champion. The 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League begins today when Rohit Sharmamen take over They grow kohliRoyal Challengers in Bangalore, Chennai.
The Mumbai Indians, perhaps in the nearly two decades of the Twenty20 format, are a country that will be remembered for its aura. If Rohit fails, then Quinton de Cock it will certainly succeed. If both fail, Ishan Kishan and Surya Kumar Yadav could scare off the daylight from the opposition.
The opposite number of Rohit is the national captain, who is ready to open again, but the composition of the RCB team does not inspire the greatest confidence. Glenn Maxwell was re-selected as a bomb, and New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson became a multimillionaire overnight from the franchise, although he was not tested in Indian powder cups.
Devdutt Padikkal will be in his second season with teams analyzing him much more, however Yuzvendra sighed he seems to have lost his mojo. Nevertheless, Chahal will strive to leave international performances behind and start over.
As the two sides collide in the opener, let’s take a look at Dream11’s predictions:
Wicketkeepers: Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan
Both Kok and Kishan are returning from their respective international missions against Pakistan and England. Kishan was in high form and the two players were an integral part of MI’s winning campaign in 2020.
The decision not to take AB de Villiers was really difficult, but we believe that the lack of practice in professional matches could leave South Africa rusty at the start. His last professional match was also for RCB, back in November last year.
Batsmen: Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav and Devdut Padikal
Collie will take on the role of opening next to Padical, who was brilliant for RCB last season. The left-handed young man, who recently recovered from COVID-19, sang for his home country Karnataka in the recently completed Vijay Hazare Trophy, and the duo could prove deadly in the upcoming release.
Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav remains the most important MI player with the bat. The Batsman remained MI’s most consistent performer last season and was in high form during the T20I Series against England. For this reason, he is the captain on our side.
Universal: Kieran Pollard, Hardik Pandya and Washington Sundar
Kieran Pollard joined the Indian camp in Mumbai on Thursday and is returning from a stellar season with limited staff for the West Indies as captain of the national team. Perhaps the most important part of the country, Pollard will combine with Hardick Pandya to give MI a strong finish during the inning.
Pollard is our deputy captain.
As Pandia gains more confidence with the ball throughout his international tournament, he will also remain a key figure with a quota of over four.
Sundar was one of the most economical bowling for RCB last season and can be a convenient option with the bat.
Bumara and Bult tortured the opposition through violence and deaths, and they will again remain key members of the country.
Meanwhile, Chahal has the ability to take wickets at a crucial stage and will also strive for a strong return to form.
