The 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is going to start on April 9, 2021. 8 teams will compete against each other for the trophy. Former India opener and cricket commentator Aakash Chopra has predicted which team is going to be most powerful this season.
Replying to a fan’s question on YouTube, Aakash Chopra said, “This time I will bet on Mumbai Indians, as Mumbai Indians have dangerous opening batsmen like Rohit Sharma and Quinton De Kock. Even if Dekock is replaced with Ishan Kishan, it will be a very dangerous pair,” he said.
Aakash Chopra spoke about the strength of Mumbai Indians and said that Mumbai Indians have a reserve opener like Chris Lynn, who specializes in batting. According to Aakash Chopra, Mumbai’s opening combination will be very dangerous when Ishan Kishan gets a chance at the opening.
The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians will play their first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai on April 9. Mumbai Indians also hoisted their flag in the tournament played in UAE due to the Covid-19 epidemic in 2020 after winning the title in 2019.
