MI vs RCB 2021 Dream11: Cricket’s biggest show on earth in the shape of IPL 2021 is set to kick-off on April 9 when Mumbai Indians (MI) start the defence of their title against Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at MA Chidambaram Stadium on Friday, April 9.
While Rohit Sharma’s MI are gunning for an unprecedented three-peat in the IPL this season having won back-to-back titles in 2019 and 2020, debunking their odd-year theory in the process, other teams have gained significant ground on them by bolstering their roster, with RCB one of them. Kohli has his hands full of options as box office and showstopper Glenn Maxwell, together with New Zealander Kyle Jamieson were bought in the IPL 2021 auction.
Mumbai Indians Playing 11: With Quinton de Kock in quarantine, Chris Lynn is likely to open the batting for MI with captain Rohit Sharma his partner. That means Ishan Kishan will be the wicket-keeper for the team.
Kieron Pollard, Trent Boult and Nathan Coulter-Nile could be the other overseas players in MI Starting XI.
In addition, star bowler Jasprit Bumrah has completed his quarantine and will be available for selection.
