After a very long wait, the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 is ultimately here. It was postponed because of the outbreak of the Coronavirus. Over the years, there have been many famous teams that have evolved in IPL history. There are a total of 8 teams with different skilled cricketers from both the domestic team and foreign. All the 8 squads are intelligently doing well but among all of them, Mumbai Indians (MI), the team has been a four times IPL champions in the years – 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019.
Recently, the former Indian cricketer, Sunil Gavaskar gave a few statements about the MI’s captain, Rohit Sharma, and the other Mumbai Indians spinners. As per the reports, he said that the Mumbai Indians do not have experienced spinners in their squad as compared to the other IPL teams. “Yes, you can say that because they do not have the experienced spinners that other sides have,” Sunil Gavaskar told Sports Tak.
Apart from the spinners, he also talked about the uncertainty of the batting order of the team, especially the No. 4 and No. 5 positions. “The other thing that can be a weakness is the middle order. They will have to think who will bat at No.4 and No.5 position. If Quinton de Kock plays, then he will open with either Rohit Sharma or Suryakumar Yadav,” he said. He further added, “Ishan Kishan might come in at No.4, he can also open the innings. Kieron Pollard can come in at No.5. Maybe Hardik Pandya can be promoted to No.4. But if that doesn’t happen then who will play at No.4?”
