Mumbai Indians spinner Rahul Chahar is confident of Mumbai Indians winning the IPL 2021 and thereby winning the title for the sixth time. If Mumbai Indians manages to win the IPL 2021, it will result in a hat-trick of title wins, having won the 2019 and 2020 editions of the tournament. In all, Rohit Sharma and Co. have won five IPL titles in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020.
“I am confident that Mumbai Indians will clinch their sixth title. The way the boys are performing and are in form, especially Rohit bhaiya (Rohit Sharma), Hardik (Pandya), Krunal, Surya (Suryakumar Yadav) and Ishan Kishan, the side is looking very strong and are the favourites to win the sixth title and the third in a row. I am sure Rohit bhaiya will hit a sixer of titles this time,” Rahul told TOI.
Rahul called Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard as the star players in the side. Besides, he reckons that Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav are also going to be key players this year.
“Rohit bhaiya, Hardik and Pollard are the star players for our team. They have the ability to turn the game at any point in time. Apart from these three, I think Surya and Ishan will be the key players for us this season. They are in tremendous form,” he added.
Mumbai Indians will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL opener on 9th April 2021.
