MI had few training sessions in Mumbai before moving to Chennai for the first game of the season. Rohit Sharma joined the squad straightaway from his bubble with the Indian team in Pune after the series against England. All overseas players have also joined MI’s training camp in Chennai. Quinton de Kock was the last player to join the team this week.
Mumbai has a very well-balanced squad in all departments. The bowling unit is looking well balanced. Trent Boult was electrifying within the last season of IPL, sharing the wicket-taking burden with Jasprit Bumrah. The left-arm pacer was an exciting addition to the squad during IPL 2021. They added more experience to the bowling department by signing Piyush Chawla. Mumbai Indians’ shock move during IPL 2021 auction was 6ft 8-inch pacer Marco Jansen was bought for Rs 20 lakhs. He can be the surprise element for any team who will play against MI.
Rohit Sharma can also personal history
Rohit Sharma can also reach a personal milestone this season by becoming the first captain to win five IPL titles. The Indian batsman will also look to get in the best possible batting form before the T-20 World Cup in October-November. He has been a phenomenal captain for MI, but batting form has not exactly been at his best for him in the last few seasons. Mumbai Indians kick off IPL 2021 with clash against RCB in Chennai on Friday.
