Dominic Cork : Mumbai Indians Have The Best Squad

Regarded as one of the heavyweights of the tournament, defending champions MI played some terrific cricket to make their way into the finals. MI’s teamwork was evident in every game they played this season as they won the maximum 9 matches in the league stage to top the points table.

Their strategies as well as game plan were spot on majority of occasions and they are ready to test their strength for one last time in final against Delhi Capitals who they had defeated in Qualifier 1.

Former England fast bowler Dominic Cork has been highly impressed with the principle around which the Mumbai Indians have built their team retaining and releasing players based on their backup options. Speaking on cricket talk show on Star Sports, he stated that MI have chalked out the best plan among all, to resource players.

“When you look at what they (Mumbai Indians) have done over a period of time now, that template that they bring in, that squad is the best and I think the way that they resource players, their analytics is the best as well, the way that they do all their head-to-heads,” said Dominic on Star Sports.

“I think they have got every single piece of the jigsaw sorted and when you look at their squad, they have the best squad, it’s simple. Because, say, if Trent Boult got injured, they have a left-armer to go straight in, in Mitch McClenaghan. So, every little piece of the jigsaw is good,” he added.

Dominic Cork has said that Mumbai Indians have the best squad among 8 franchises as they have backup options. Dominic Cork featured in 37 Tests and 32 ODIs where he picked 131 and 41 wickets respectively.

Among batsmen, both Ishan Kishan and Quinton De Kock have scored 483 runs each and are the leading run scorers for MI. In bowling, Jasprit Bumrah has 27 wickets and Trent Boult has 22 wickets and are the 2nd and 3rd respectively in leading wicket takers of this season.

Dominic Cork : Mumbai Indians Have Got Fantastic Young Players And Named 2 Of Them Who Will Definitely Play For India

The former English cricketer praised the young guns of Mumbai Indians, especially Suryakumar Yadav and Rahul Chahar. Suryakumar Yadav have amassed 461 runs in 15 games averaging 41.9 while Rahul Chahar has 15 scalps from as many matches averaging 28.86.

“Mumbai Indians have got some fantastic young players coming in – two I will name – Suryakumar Yadav and Rahul Chahar – two, that I think will play for India, definitely,” asserted Cork on the show.

While Mumbai Indians gear up for yet another finale win, Delhi Capitals will eye their maiden title win. Both teams locked horns in the Qualifier 1 which went in MI’s favor by beating Delhi by 57 runs. Whereas DC bounced back, winning the second qualifier against SRH to enter the final. Mumbai have won both league matches and 1st Qualifier against Delhi.

Jayant Yadav Is An Option To Tackle Delhi’s 3 Left Handers: Rohit Sharma

Jayant Yadav, off-spinner of Mumbai Indians could be an option for Tuesday’s Indian Premier League (IPL) final as Delhi Capitals (DC) have a number of left-handed batsmen according to Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma.

DC have Shikhar Dhawan, Shimron Hetmyer, Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel, all left-handers who can bat well and have played important innings this season.

Jayant Yadav Is A Good Option As Delhi Have 3 Left Handed Batsmen: Rohit Sharma

Jayant Yadav has 5 wickets in 13 matches so far in IPL career, and in this season, he has bowled 3 overs in one game but was unable to take a wicket conceding 18 runs. The right arm off break spinner has played only one match. The likes of Krunal Pandya and Anukul Roy, who is yet to play a match, are left-arm spinners while Rahul Chahar is legbreak googly spinner.

“With the number of lefties they have, Jayant is a good option. He played the second last league stage game [on October 31], against Delhi, he bowled pretty well. They have three lefties in the middle order. He has also played for DC before and understands them well. He is a great option,” said Sharma while addressing the media.

In his lone game, Jayant Yadav failed to take a wicket. Krunal Pandya has 6 wickets while leg spinner Rahul Chahar has 15 wickets from as many matches.

Rohit Sharma: Every Game Is A New Game And Winning Toss Is Crucial

Rohit Sharma added that MI will carry psychological advantage into the final, having beaten DC in both league stage games and 1st Qualifier, but he added that they would have to take this as a new game and DC as new opponents. DC beat SRH in Qualifier 2 to progress into the final for the first time.

“Every game is a new game; every day is a new day. You can’t dwell on it [the past results]. One guy having a good game can take the game away from you. Again, nothing changes for us. New game, new opponent. We have to think of them as a new opponent and keep doing the right things,” Sharma said.

The right-handed batsman said that winning the toss will be crucial in the final but they cannot rely completely on it.

“Look, winning the toss is very crucial but it shouldn’t make a difference for us. We need to take that away. We need to bat and bowl well and we’ll win,” said Sharma.

Rohit Sharma has scored 264 runs in 11 matches (average 24.00) of this IPL season and he will look to make amends with the bat as well as a skipper in the IPL 2020 final.

Hardik Pandya Not Comfortable Enough To Bowl

Hardik Pandya of Mumbai Indians is still not comfortable enough to bowl, his Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma said on Monday, a few days before the Indian team sets off on the marquee tour of Australia for 3 T20Is, 3 ODIs and 4 Tests.

On the eve of their IPL final against Delhi Capitals, Rohit Sharma said Hardik Pandya, who has not bowled through the 13th edition of the lucrative event, made it clear that he is still not up to the mark when it comes to fitness.

Hardik Pandya Isn’t Comfortable Bowling As He Has Some Niggle: Rohit Sharma

Hardik Pandya has scored 278 runs in 13 matches averaging 39.71 at a great strike rate of 182.89 but hasn’t bowled in this entire IPL season. He has picked up 42 wickets from 79 IPL matches besides scoring 1346 runs. He hasn’t been selected in Test squad where the spin-bowling all-rounders Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Hanuma Vihari have been preferred instead.

“He is not comfortable at the moment to bowl you know, and we have left all the decision on him,” Rohit said.

The Indian limited-overs vice-captain, who isn’t a part of Indian limited-overs squad for the upcoming Australia tour, is eyeing an unprecedented fifth IPL trophy said his swashbuckling all-rounder has “got some niggle going”.

“… If he feels comfortable he will be happy to bowl, but at the moment, he is not feeling comfortable, he has got some niggle going.

“So I mean it would have been great to have him bowl but, throughout the season, we have given him that cushion of being in that comfort zone and making sure that he takes care of his body and he has done that really well.”

Amidst the MI domination over the past few weeks, the team management kept assessing the progress made by Hardik Pandya, who more than made up for not bowling pace with his incredible ability to hit the ball at a phenomenal strike rate which was acknowledged by skipper Rohit Sharma.

“We have had his assessment every three four games and we have spoken to him about what he wants to do.”

“So we don’t want to put that pressure on individuals where we are expecting something from him and he is not able to do it and the team morale goes down, we don’t want that situation.”

“You know Hardik to us is very important as a player and his batting has been really really key for us, making it to the final. So as long as he bats I am happy.”

Mumbai Indians topped the points table with maximum 9 wins in 14 matches and had maximum 18 points while also beating 2nd placed Delhi Capitals in the Qualifier 1.

Hardik Pandya Underwent Back Surgery And Last Played In September 2019

Hardik Pandya is part of the teams named for the limited-overs series in Australia beginning in the last week of November. Hardik Pandya underwent back surgery in October last year in the UK. His lower back had been troubling him since the late 2018.

The surgery kept him out of action for almost a year, with the all-rounder last playing a T20 International against South Africa at home in September 2019. He missed the 3 Tests against the Proteas after that, the home series against Bangladesh comprising of 3 T20Is and 2 Tests and West Indies (3 T20Is and 3 ODIs), a T20I series of 3 matches against Sri Lanka and 3 ODIs against Australia at home, and the entire tour of New Zealand earlier this year which saw 5 T20Is, 3 ODIs and 2 Tests.

South Africa’s tour to India for 3 ODIs was cancelled after the abandonment of first ODI for rain due to coronavirus but Hardik Pandya was named in the ODI squad.

IPL Final Biggest Thing After World Cup Final: Kieron Pollard

Mumbai Indians’ mainstay Kieron Pollard has stated that the Indian Premier League (IPL) grand finale is the next biggest thing after the World Cup finale. The reason being the intensity and pressure during the marquee clash is no less than the World Cup.

Mumbai Indians, who have four IPL titles in their name, have sixth time made it to the IPL finale. On Tuesday (November 10), they will take on Delhi Capitals, who have reached the grand finale for the first time, to add another accolade to their name and to build their supremacy.

In the video posted on the official Twitter handle of Mumbai Indians, Kieron Pollard stated that the name ‘finale’ should not take a toll on players while they should soak in the pressure and treat the marquee clash as a normal match.

“The name of the game is pressure, in a final. Everyone takes that pressure. You want to win and not commit a mistake, but at the end of the day, you have to try to take the finals as a normal game. Just go out there, enjoy yourself and the atmosphere,” said Pollard in a video posted on the official Twitter handle of Mumbai Indians.

As the COVID-19 has forced IPL to be scheduled behind closed doors, Kieron Pollard believes that the magnitude of the IPL finale can not be beaten. He even stated that it has importance next to the World Cup in the game of cricket.

“Obviously, no crowds in this final, but enjoy the magnitude of it. It’s is an IPL final, it’s the biggest thing after the World Cup final,” he added.

Indeed, the Indian Premier League is one of the biggest tournaments in cricket. It is a huge-crowd puller as the biggest cricket stars come together to play for their respective franchises. The cash-rich league has given birth to many known names in the cricket world and thus, several nations have prioritised IPL in making plans for their cricketing future.

Trent Boult Is The Best Bowler With New Ball As MI Are Lucky To Have Traded Him From Delhi: Rohit Sharma

Delhi Capitals will also have revenge on their mind after suffering the humiliating defeat at the hands of MI in the Qualifier 1. MI had scored 200/5 in their 20 overs but reduced DC to a score of 0/3 in the first two overs itself. The chief architect of the collapse was a former DC pacer.

Trent Boult removed Prithvi Shaw and Ajinkya Rahane in the first over itself to finish with figures of 2/9 in 2 overs as he has been spectacular this season and is one of the architects of MI who reached the final of IPL 2020.

MI captain Rohit Sharma heaped praise on Trent Boult ahead of the final. He said that MI was lucky to have got him traded from DC as he is the ‘best bowler with the new ball’.

“It’s a no brainer that (Boult) he is the best bowler with the new ball, when it comes to swinging the ball back into the batsman and luckily for us we got him traded from Delhi and he has not disappointed anyone of us,” Rohit said, reminding what Capitals are losing out on.

“Looking at the squad, the strength, the balance of this team, you know I cannot point out anything (weakness) to be honest,” the skipper said.

Trent Boult has 22 wickets from 14 matches averaging 19.4 at an economy rate of exactly 8. He has picked one 4-wicket haul and his figure of 4/18 is his T20 career-best. Overall, he has 60 wickets in 47 IPL matches.

MI have pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Nathan Counter-Nile and James Pattinson in their ranks while spinners Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya assist them. Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Quinton De Kock, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard and Rohit Sharma consist of their strong batting line-up.

Trent Boult Will Play Hopefully: Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma replied to a question posed by Hindustan Times at the virtual pre-match press conference on Trent Boult’s injury and the MI captain said that the bowler is expected to play on Tuesday.

“Trent looks pretty good. He’s gonna have a session today with all of us, he has pulled up pretty well in the last two days. So, fingers crossed, hopefully he plays,” Sharma said.

In 14 games this season, Trent Boult has picked up 22 wickets at an average of 19.40 and he is currently in the 3rd position in the list of leading wicket-takers in the season, only behind of Delhi Capitals’ Kagiso Rabada (29) and his MI teammate Jasprit Bumrah (27).

IPL 2020: Rohit Sharma Reckons Mumbai Indians Will Lift Fifth IPL Trophy

Mumbai Indians have a smooth journey in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in comparison to past seasons. Without any hush-hush and pressure to qualify for playoffs, the defending champions comfortably entered the grand finale and will now face on Delhi Capitals to add the fifth IPL title in their name.

Addressing the media ahead of the marquee clash, MI skipper Rohit Sharma opined that he was sure that his side will lift the title again this year. He reasoned that they have a psychological advantage to combat Delhi Capitals.

“There’ll be a psychological advantage a little bit. I’m sure we’ll have the fifth one in the bag” Rohit said in the pre-match press conference.

Mumbai Indians have beaten the Shreyas Iyer-led team in all the three occasions they have met this season. In both the league stage matches, the four-time IPL winners with ease won the matches by huge margins. Likewise in the first qualifier, it was not rocket science for MI to beat DC. So, it is right to say that the pressure will be on Delhi, who will be playing the IPL final for the very first time.

Rohit Sharma’s plan against DC:

Admitting that IPL has been unpredictable, Rohit Sharma didn’t want to take his opponent lightly and except his team to put the best show when the two teams meet in Dubai on Tuesday (November 10).

“What we’ve seen with IPL is every day is a fresh day, every day is a new pressure and every game is a new game. So you can’t think too much about what has happened in the past,” added Rohit who is on the verge of becoming the first captain in IPL history to win five titles.

“To be honest, we can’t think about that we’ve played these guys before and we’ve beaten them. We just need to think that they’re a new opponent and what we’ll do as a team against that opponent.

To beat DC, Rohit Sharma has planned to keep things simple and execute the plans perfectly on the field.

“It’s that simple for us and we keep doing right things on the field,” said Rohit, who has not a great season this year.  

Since he has returned from the injury-break, Rohit Sharma’s form has been the most considering factor for Mumbai Indians. Against DC in the qualifier, he was out for a golden duck off Ravichandran Ashwin‘s ball. He needs to come out good in the field in the marquee clash to take the game home.
