My beautiful friends
Hope you all are doing well
Today we are going to know all about the team in IPL which is almost qualified for the playoffs in IPL season 10. With 8 wins in 10 matches Mumbai Indians is sitting pretty safe on top of Points table. Just a confirmation or formality sign needs to be check in and they will the first team to qualify for playoffs. Or they need to register to win a match and fix their spot inrespect of other teams match results .
This is how they are doing and sitting right now. But let’s know about their journey to get here. With Captain Rohit Sharma just coming out of injury, Pollard been out of game from quite time and Malinga injury and lack of performance. Still manage to be the first team to qualify. How they do it, how they turn the tables and winning matches.
Mumbai Indians was always the team who known as slow starter in the tournament which is highly unlikely this year . They lost their opening match but after that they all the matches quite handsomely . The only team the have lost their both the matches was Rising Pune Supergiant . All the other teams still has to beat MI this season .
YOUNG AND NEW RISING STAR
This was a great reason for why Mumbai Indians was winning their matches in early tournament unlike other IPL season. Mumbai Indians and Indian Cricket has seen some new and talented cricketer this year as well whom are performing and playing their role exceedingly well. Nitish Rana a new kid on the block has taken away all the limelight in the early phases of Mumbai Indians campaign. With his power hitting and beautiful stroke play won several matches for MI. Last year wonder kid Krunal pandaya is doing his job well again. With pandaya brothers ( Krunal and Hardik) playing well MI has get a balance on their side as well.
New Improve Opening Partnership
If you a cricket lover and following IPl regularly you can tell what was actually the problem in MI batting lineup from last two to three seasons: their opening partnership. They have tried over 15 opening partnership combination in three seasons of IPL. Partiv patel is doing good job as a opener but he was never getting a settle partner at the other end from last two season. Being Rohit Sharma in the side makes it more tempting to play him up the order as he opens his innings for National Cricket team. This experiment was also failed as it brings a weak and unexperience middle order which crumbles in hard situation.
This season they have made a bold move by playing English Wicket keeper batsman opening the innings with Parthiv patel. The move is certainly paying off has the English keeper has played some sensational knocks and win matches for his team. With Parthiv patel the opening partnership mystery has been solved.
When it needed the most the experience players stood up to the challenge and win the matches for your side. With some disappointed in the tournament beginning Rohit Sharma certainly feeling good and playing well after that injury come back. His shots are always a delight to watch and with him coming in form is a jackpot hit by MI.
Kieron Pollard is not to far away as well. Maybe he has not made run or perform exceedingly well in all the matches but he certainly stood up when team needed him the most and win the almost impossible match for them.
All rounders ( A rare comodity in India find by MI )
All rounders are the one who make your side from good to best. They provide the much needed balance in team so they can play around with their bowlers and batsman according to team and match need. Pandya Brothers are certainly doing their job well in giving that balance to MI. With some sensational hitting at the back end of the innings or with the ball providing some quite overs or much needed breakthrough. They are doing just what any team would want to have in their side.
Bowlers doing good
T20 is a batsman game and we often forget to give credit to the bowlers. They doing their job as well but they get more criticism than appreciation. With Young Star Jasprit Bumrah being the leader of Pace attack in the absence of Malinga. He done the job really well and. Even after Malinga came back he was playing like the leader of attack. That’s the confidence which make Captain to give him the ball in the crucial Super Over against Gujrat Lions. With just 11 runs to defend and doing a no ball at the very first ball of the over. He still managed to win the match for Mumbai Indians.
Experience campaigner like Harbajan Singh, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell Johnson , Mitchell Mchellengan is doing their job MI campaign is looking really strong for the third IPL Title win.
