Mumbai Indians beat Delhi Capital to win their fifth title in the final of the 13th IPL season in the United Arab Emirates led by Rohit Sharma.
Former wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel has suggested that defending champions Mumbai Indians should not change their play XI in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL 2021). Patel, who is part of the five-time title-winning team, said the Mumbai team is quite set and there is no need to interfere with their playing XI.

“I don’t think Mumbai Indians will think about who will be fed,” Parthiv said at a Star Sports event. All the other teams must be thinking about where they are playing and should try to feed their best team accordingly. Read more – IPL 2021: This time Gautam Gambhir wanted Econ Morgan for Magic KKR
“If they are playing in Chennai, you can expect spin bowlers, but from the Mumbai Indians’ point of view, I don’t think they will interfere more in their playing XI,” Patel said. Read more – Hav Shabh Pant was declared the best batsman to play for the first time: Billings
Parthiv said the Mumbai Indians’ bowling attack was unbalanced but would strengthen all-rounder Hardik Pandya’s bowling in the 14th over. I can tell you that Pandya, who came back after back surgery, did not bowl last IPL season, but it is expected that this season he will be seen performing both bat and ball.
The former wicketkeeper-batsman said, “Hardik Pandya is now bowling a lot in almost four overs. Pollard also bowled his slow ball well which is effective for Chennai wickets. And Rahul Chahar’s IPL has been great, which is why he got a chance in Team India. Krunal Pandya’s four overs, his form in domestic cricket, I can discuss this for a few hours. “
