The defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) put their fans into a frenzy when they posted a short video of skipper Rohit Sharma, drummer Kieron Pollard and Suryakumar Yadav training to hit hard ahead of their match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Thursday. The video sets the tone even more as it combines with an old Bollywood song to give the entire clip a remarkable blend of class and modernity. All three drummers do justice to the game as well as the song as they hit the ground running with top notch shots. None of the three batsmen intended to keep the ball on the ground, giving clear signs of fearless cricket soon to be unleashed from the MI camp.
Not only to the delight of MI fans but the Indian cricket community as well, Rohit Sharma was seen centering the ball towards all parts of the pitch.
According to head coach Mahela Jayawardena and pacer Trent Boult, Rohit has been kept out of the game eleven as part of his workload management plan.
As MI lost the match, Rohit could be greeted with open arms to bring them back to victory.
Pollard and Suryakumar, the two batsmen endured a difficult night against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) during the opening of the second phase of the IPL 2021.
However, given MI’s slow starts throughout their successful winning campaigns, poor form early on won’t be a major issue in their next game.
