After losing the toss and being asked to bat first, Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma revealed that their overseas left-arm pacer Jason Behrendorff is not part of the initial MI Playing 11 in this RCB vs MI IPL 2023 match on Sunday. Interestingly, the Australian fast bowler is named as one of the five substitute members out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the game.
