In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma will attempt to become the first captain to win the trophy three times in a row. The right-handed starter has been working hard in the offseason in preparation for the season opener on April 9 against a star-studded Michigan team. MI teased fans on Instagram on Wednesday with a video of Rohit Sharma hitting his signature pull shot in the nets, hinting at what was to come from the explosive batsman.
Rohit Sharma has led Mumbai Indians to a record five IPL championships, making him the most prolific captain in the league’s history. With three trophies, Chennai Super Kings are the next best team.
MI dominated the IPL 2020 season in the United Arab Emirates, with Rohit Sharma scoring 332 runs in 12 games.
Despite a lacklustre season, Rohit scored a fine half-century in the final against Delhi Capitals to help Mumbai win the league.
The Mumbai Indians will begin their season at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, where they will face Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the IPL 2021 will be held in six cities, with all matches held at neutral venues.
Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bengaluru, and Ahmedabad are the six cities.
