Listen to the news
The first match of the tournament will be played between the defending champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) here and the presence of a big hitter in both the teams will ensure that there is plenty of spectators who will not be able to come to the stadium due to the epidemic.
The tournament has also been hit by the Corona virus and some players and support staff have been found positive before the start of the league. But due to the tight biologically secure environment for the Games, the Board of Cricket in India (BCCI) expects the tournament to be organized as smoothly as in previous tournaments in the UAE.
With five titles, Rohit, the most successful captain in IPL history, would like to score the first title hat-trick in the league with the sixth trophy. If Rohit fails to bat, then Quinton Dickock will be ready to succeed. If both of them fail, then batsmen like Ishaan Kishan and Surya Kumar Yadav will be responsible. If Mumbai’s top order completely fails, then Pandya brothers (Hardik and Krunal) will come out to beat the opponent. Also, the team has a stormy batsman like Pollard who is also very important for the team due to his strong fielding on the field.
Bolt and Bumrah will be duped
The bowling will depend on bowlers like Trent Boult and Rahul Chahar. The team of Mumbai Indians can only lose on their bad days and on their good days they are like a nightmare for any opposing team.
Indian team captain Ranamshin Virat Kohli will go on to win the IPL title for the first time. Under his leadership, the combination of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) does not look as effective as Mumbai. The team has spent a huge amount on Glenn Maxwell. Devdutt Padikkal will play his second season and this time the teams will strategize for him. If AB de Villiers of South Africa is in rhythm, then no target is big in front of him.
Bowling may be a weak link
Bangalore’s bowling, despite being a raucous batsman, does not look as strong. New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson became a millionaire overnight, while his bowling on Indian wickets has not been tested yet. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is seen losing rhythm. Mohammad Siraj and Navdeep Saini have not been able to perform very effectively in limited overs cricket so far.
The team is as follows:
Rohit Sharma (Captain), Adam Milne, Aditya Tare, Anmolpreet Singh, Suchit Roy, Arjun Tendulkar, Chris Lynn, Dhawal Kulkarni, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, James Neesham, Jaspreet Bumrah, Jayant Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Marco Janssen , Mohsin Khan, Nathan Kuplter Nile, Piyush Chawla, Quinton Decock, Rahul Chahar, Saurabh Tiwari, Suryakumar Yadav, Trent Boult, Yudhveer Singh.
Virat Kohli (captain), AB de Villiers, Devadatta Padikkal, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammad Siraj, Kane Richardson, Washington Sundar, Pawan Deshpande, Finn Allen, Shahbaz Ahmed, Navdeep Saini, Adam Jampa, Kyle Jamieson, Glenn Maxwell, Rajat Patidar, Sachin Baby , Mohammad Azharuddin, Daniel Christian, KS Bharat, Suyesh Prabhudesai, Daniel Symes, Harshal Patel.
