Ishan Kishan

Mumbai Indians batsman Ishan Kishan was rewarded for his top show in IPL. He had made 516 runs in the last edition of IPL held in UAE. Besides this, he had impressed in the limited opportunities for India in limited-overs cricket. He grabbed the opportunity with both hands by slamming the fifties in both formats.

Rahul Chahar

Rahul Chahar has been phenomenal for Mumbai Indians in the last few seasons. He has been a consistent performer for the defending champions. He had taken 11 wickets in 7 matches during the first phase of IPL 2021. He has also taken 15 and 13 wickets in the last two IPL editions respectively. The youngster also grabbed the opportunity with both hands during the India tour of Sri Lanka.
