Also, watch out for the Mumbai Indians in IPL 2021 game. Against the Knight Riders on Thursday. Manjrekar picked captain Rohit Sharma. Quinton de Kock and Kieron Pollard as well as the duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Adam Milne to watch out for on Thursday.
‘’Rohit Sharma is back in the playing XI, that is what we are getting to hear. He is fit to play against Kolkata. So, Rohit is one. No.2 is Jasprit Bumrah,” Sanjay Manjrekar said.
“Quinton de Kock, with the kind of pitches we have in the UAE, people like him will like the ball to come on, and we saw that in the last game against Chennai, Adam Milne. The first half of this Indian T20 league, expect fast bowlers to make an impression, and Kieron Pollard,’’ he added.
Moreover, Sharma will make a comeback to the MI playing XI. After missing the first game due to injury. The accomplished opener is the leading run-scorer for MI in the ongoing season. Also, scoring 250 runs in seven innings.
While De Kock looked good in his first game on IPL 2021. Also, smashing three boundaries during his 12-ball 17. But he failed to convert that into a big knock. Adam Milne was the pick of the bowlers for MI against CSK. Lastly, Bumrah and Pollard had lackluster outings, going by their staggering standards.
“Venkatesh Iyer was quite a revelation,” Sanjay Manjrekar said.
‘’I gotta go with Shubman Gill with his new approach. Varun Chakravarthy, somebody I need to have, got three wickets in the last match. Lockie Ferguson is looking really good.”
“Andre Russell, he is another player to watch out for. Venkatesh Iyer from Madhya Pradesh was quite a revelation batting at the top of the order, with his approach and talent’’
In conclusion, KKR will hope to repeat their RCB performance against the Mumbai Indians on Thursday in IPL 2021.
