Rohit Sharma can make a change in playing XI: Chennai’s challenge to Mumbai. Mumbai Indians (MI) will face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in IPL 2021 today.
Chennai’s challenge will not be easy for Mumbai. The defending champions have so far struggled this season. The team performed poorly in Chennai. Of the five there, the team won only two.
However, the match is to be held in Delhi. The team has played a match here. He won it. Mumbai defeated Rajasthan Royals in the last match. Batting is a matter of concern for the team.
So far no batsman has been relentless. Especially the middle order has failed to make an impact so far this season.
Quinton De Kock appeared in great form in the match against Rajasthan. Apart from this, Rohit Sharma is also in form. Suryakumar Yadav has also done well so far.
The drop to Ishan Kishan has given Mumbai more options in bowling, but it will be interesting whether he will return to the team? Because their performance against Chennai has been fantastic.
Ishan may be included in the team in place of Jayant Yadav. Other than this, no other changes are likely.
The bowling of the team has been strengthened by the arrival of Nathan Culter Nile. The team has hitters like Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard, who specializes in turning the dice of any match.
However, they have not performed well in the last few matches, which is a problem for the team. Talking of bowling, Jaspreet Bumrah and Trent Boult have done well so far.
At the same time, Rahul Chahar has also bowled well.
Possible playing XI of Mumbai Indians.
Rohit Sharma (captain), Quinton Dickock (wicketkeeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Kulper Lyall, Rahul Chahar, Jayant Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult.
