New Delhi. In the 42nd match of IPL 2021, Mumbai Indians made two major changes in their playing XI. Mumbai, which lost three consecutive matches, showed Ishan Kishan and Adam Milne the way out of the team. At the same time, Saurabh Tiwari and Nathan Coulter-Nile were given a chance in their place. Punjab has also kept Mayank Agarwal out of the playing XI as he has back pain. Mandeep Singh has got a chance in his place. Ishan Kishan has to bear the brunt of poor form. This left-handed batsman has been able to score only 107 runs in 8 matches and his average is only 13.37. Ishan Kishan has also got a place in the Indian T20 World Cup team. His form is a matter of concern not only for Mumbai but also for Team India.
Not only Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav has also been able to score 189 runs in IPL 2021 at an average of just 18.90. Mumbai is facing the brunt of the poor form of these two players. Last year’s champion Mumbai team is at number 7 in the points table. He has only 8 points in 10 matches. Now this team needs to win almost every match to reach the playoffs. After losing a match, it will come down to the net run rate.
