Indian Premier League is one of the most popular Twenty20 cricket leagues in the cricket world. For the past fourteen years, IPL has been celebrated as a festival in India. It is a source of entertainment for all ardent cricket fans. This is the reason why all the fans eagerly wait for the league to start. The IPL seasons bring a sense of thrill and excitement that interests all the Indians. In the year 2020, due to COVID-19, the Indian Premier League was shifted to UAE. Mumbai Indians were the defending champions of that season. They played against Delhi Capitals and won their 5th title.
The captain of Mumbai Indians is Rohit Sharma and under his guidance, the team has been winning the trophy for the past two years. Therefore, it is not unknown that they are eyeing this year’s trophy as well. Mumbai Indians is backed by some marvellous overseas players who are very strong and can put up a tough fight against the other teams. Since these overseas players are spectacular, it is difficult for the other overseas players to replace them. Let’s look at the four overseas players who might be benched according to the 2021 IPL bet prediction:
Chris Lynn is a cricket contender who joined Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020. He has not played any match for the team. Chris Lynn is an opening batsman, so the captain chose Quinton de Kock over him to play the match. It is predicted that Chris Lynn might be benched throughout the match. Quinton de Kock will be playing a pivotal role as an overseas batsman for the team.
In the IPL 2021 auction, Adam Milne was bought by Mumbai Indians for Rs 3.2 crore. He is a player from the New Zealand cricket team who has strong contenders like Trent Boult and Nathan Coulter-Nile. These overseas players have always put up a vigorous fight and made it difficult for the other teams to win. Since Adam Milne does not have much experience in the Indian Premier League, according to the IPL bet prediction, he might be benched this season.
James Neesham is an all-rounder overseas player who was bought by Mumbai Indians for Rs 50 lakh during the auction of IPL 2021. However, Mumbai Indians is backed by two strong players like Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard who have always strived towards winning. So, it is very unlikely for James Neesham to replace any of the two players in the playing 11. Therefore, there are chances that Mumbai Indians might bench Neesham during IPL 2021.
Marco Jansen was also bought by Mumbai Indians in the IPL auction 2021. He is a young South African player who has not played any international match until now. He has only played in South Africa’s domestic T20 tournament, therefore he is considered inexperienced. It is very unlikely for him to be in the playing 11 as well. Since he is young and not very experienced, it is highly possible for Mumbai Indians to bench him throughout this season.
Mumbai Indians is a renowned team that has been winning the IPl for the past two years. They have been striving to win the 2021 season as well. This can be possible only when the players can prove to be a tough competition against the other teams. The IPL cricket prediction sort of gives an idea that the team will not take a chance by letting the new players lead this season. Even though all the players are capable enough to put up a stringent fight, it is the experienced ones who can understand the nerves of the other players and help the team win for the third consecutive year.
