Mumbai Indians’ performance in this season has been very poor. He has not won a single in the 7 matches he has played so far. It is almost difficult for the team to reach the playoffs now that only a miracle can make it to the playoffs, but they will have to play to save their credibility in the tournament.
In such a situation, today Mumbai has to compete with Gujarat at Wankhede. Mumbai would like to break the losing streak in today’s match. Nothing has worked out favourably for the five-time champion as of now and he is ranked last in the points table.
Lucknow team is in good form. Team captain KL Rahul has also scored a century. Now the MI has to show a good game to its top 3 players, then their captain will have to come forward and perform. Ishan Kishan needs to show his batting skills. At the same time, Dewald Brevis will have to make big scores.
There have been speculations for a long time that Arjun should now get a chance in the playing XI of Mumbai. Arjun is an all-rounder and bowls very well. Today is also Sachin Tendulkar’s birthday. In such a situation, it has to be seen whether Arjun gets a chance on his father’s birthday. Anyway, Mumbai, who have lost seven games, should now give a chance to their bench strength. There can be a no better opportunity for Arjun Tendulkar to make his IPL debut.
MI Probable XI
Rohit Sharma (captain), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Verma, Tim David, Kieron Pollard, Arjun Tendulkar, Hrithik Shokeen, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith, Daniel Sams
