IPL 2019: 7th Match – RCB vs MI – Mumbai Indians’ Predicted Playing XI, Analysis
Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore had got off to flawed start as both of them lost their tournament opener. Consequently, both of these sides will look to bounce back in the tourney. Royal Challengers Bangalore was bundled out for a mere score of 70 runs whereas Mumbai Indians was thwarted by Delhi Capitals. Meanwhile, Sportzwiki brings you the Mumbai Indians’ Predicted Playing XI.
Mumbai Indians haven’t been good starters in the folklore of the Indian Premier League. The three times champions have lost their last seven season’s opener and it was a not a different story against Delhi Capitals. Consequently, the Rohit Sharma-led side will like to come back into the tournament.
Here is the Mumbai Indians full squad.
Rohit Sharma (C), Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Krunal Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Mayank Markande, Rahul Chahar, Anukul Roy, Siddhesh Lad, Aditya Tare, Evin Lewis, Kieron Pollard, Ben Cutting, Mitchell McClenaghan, Adam Milne, Jason Behrendorff, Pankaj Jaiswal, Rasikh Dar, Yuvraj Singh, Lasith Malinga, Anmolpreet Singh, Barinder Sran.
Here is the Mumbai Indians’ Predicted Playing XI:
Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma was dismissed for a cheap score in the series opener. Consequently, Sharma will like to deliver at the opening position.
Quinton de Kock
Quinton de Kock looked in good form. Consequently, the wicketkeeper-batsman will like to deliver the goods for the Mumbai Indians.
Suryakumar Yadav could not get going as he was run out in the previous match. However, Yadav was in fine form in the previous season and he would like to come up with a good performance.
One of the biggest takeaways for Mumbai Indians in the first match was Yuvraj Singh. The veteran had scored a fine fifty against Delhi.
Kieron Pollard scored only 21 runs in the previous match. However, the talisman all-rounder had galloped a brilliant catch at the cover region.
Mumbai’s Hardik Pandya was on the expensive side with the ball. Furthermore, the all-rounder was dismissed for the second ball duck.
Mumbai Indians will like to get off the mark.
Krunal Pandya threatened to take the game away from Delhi Capitals. The southpaw had scored a brisk knock of 32 runs off just 12 balls.
It was surprising to note no Mayank Markande in the playing XI. The young colt had impressed in the previous season and he might get his chance in place of Rasikh Salam.
Jasprit Bumrah has not travelled with the team and Barinder Sran could replace the Mumbai Indians’ lead fast bowler.
The New Zealand seamer was the pick of the Mumbai Indians bowlers in the first match. The southpaw pacer had scalped three wickets.
It is reported that Lasith Malinga can join the Mumbai Indians squad. Consequently, the veteran fast bowler can fill in the shoes of his student Jasprit Bumrah.
Batsmen – 7.5/10
The return of form of Yuvraj Singh was a big boost for the Mumbai Indians. There is a lot of firepower in Mumbai Indians batting line-up. However, they miss a middle order batsman who can get quick runs.
Mumbai Indians will definitely miss the services of their lead pacer Jasprit Bumrah. Consequently, the visitors will like to pull up their socks in the bowling department as they had conceded 213 runs against the Delhi Capitals.
