“The Mumbai Indians have so much depth that the opposition drowns in that. If you talk about batting, they have Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya after Kieron Pollard. They hit so much that stopping them becomes impossible,” Aakash Chopra said.
Discussing IPL, he said that every of their bowler played well as they have a plethora of fast bowlers for them. The team is with plenty of fast bowlers and does not have any deficiency.
“If you talk about their bowling, they kept on playing Rahul Chahar for the entire tournament and when the chance came they played Jayant Yadav and he also did well. Anukul Roy comes as a fielder and takes 2-3 catches and they have a plethora of fast bowlers with them.”
“This team does not have any deficiency. There is no doubt that the Mumbai Indians is the best franchise team in the world, but if they play a three-match T20 series against the Indian team where the Mumbai Indians players will play for them, i.e. Rohit Sharma, Bumrah, and Hardik Pandya, I feel they will defeat Team India as well.”
“Team India’s biggest strength is Bumrah’s bowling, that is there with Mumbai, Rohit Sharma’s opening, that is with Mumbai. If you talk about batting depth – Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, and Kieron Pollard – their No.5, 6, and 7 is better than the Indian one.” Chopra said.
