Kohli & Bumrah shines brightly

The former India skipper silenced his critics with some blistering innings to greatly improve his strike rate. With a solitary ton and 5 fifties, Kohli has a strike rate of 155 and an impressive average of 66.

On the other hand, despite Mumbai Indians’ poor results, Jasprit Bumrah has been their sliver lining. The ace pacer has bagged 20 wickets in 13 games and tops the Purple Cap charts. For Team India, this is a good signs, given that their best batter and bowler are in peak form, heading into the T20 World Cup.

Rohit & Hardik Major concerns

But there are major concerns regarding the form of Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya. Under new captain Hardik Pandya, Mumbai Indians suffered a lot. The 5-time champions were the first team to be eliminated from the race for the knockouts.

Hardik Pandya neither has been impressive with the bat nor has been impressive with the ball. Adding more concerns is the poor form of skipper Rohit Sharma. With India aiming break their 11 year ICC Trophy jinx, the Men in Blue will have to rely on everyone’s collective strength to perform well.
