The Mumbai Indians have been consistent in their performances since Rohit Sharma has started to lead the team. In his leadership, the team has won 5 titles. Their brand of cricket has been very popular among the fans. The likes of Chris Lynn, Rohit Sharma, Surykumar Yadav, and Pandya’s brother are exciting players in the T20 format due to their capabilities and track record. Although the team lost their first league match, they have bounced back in the earlier years. It was Chris Lynn’s birthday on Saturday, and the team made sure that the celebration remains the same even after a loss.
The all-rounder Krunal Pandya has been the star all-rounder for the Mumbai Indians team. The Australian batsman Chris Lynn made his debut for Mumbai Indians in the 1st match of the IPL 2021. In his first appearance, he scored a quickfire 49 to set a stable platform for the team. Although the team lost the match, he would be happy about his performance. In a video, Krunal Pandya can be seen cheering “Happy Birthday Jonny”, and the other players also start shouting Jonny Jonny.

The Mumbai Indians team lost their first league match of the IPL for a consecutive 9th time. In the next match, the wicket-keeper batsman Quinton De Kock may return for the team. He is coming into this season after impressive performance against Pakistan. The batting unit could not accelerate in the death overs. The bowlers performed well and would look to maintain the same form.
