IPL 2021: Sunil Gavaskar Backs MI For The Win
Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar believes that MI can win the title this year as well as they hold enough strength to maintain their domination in the upcoming season as well. Sunil Gavaskar stated that Mumbai Indians are going to be a hard team to beat this season. Gavaskar stated that players like Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav, who recently made their international debut, are in good form, which is great news for the franchise.
“I think Mumbai Indians will be hard to beat. We have seen their players coming to form. Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav, the way they batted. Mumbai Indian players who took part in this T20I series and ODI series have shown they are in good form,” Gavaskar told Star Sports.
“The way Hardik Pandya has come to the party not just for Mumbai Indians, it was important for Indian cricket to see him bowl 9 overs. It means he is ready to play 9 overs. It (the World Test Championship final) is going to be in June, there is still time for that but the way he has come back is very good for Mumbai and Indian cricket,” Gavaskar added.
