The performance of the five-time champions Mumbai Indians team in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 has been very disappointing so far. The team, captained by Rohit Sharma, has played a total of five matches so far, of which only two have won, while three have lost. Former West Indies cricketer and veteran batsman Brian Lara is scared of Mumbai Indians. Lara believes that the next round of IPL matches will now be played in New Delhi and Ahmedabad, teams may face difficulties in adapting to the new venue.
Lara said in Star Sports ‘pre show Cricket Live,’ I mean this is a tournament in which it is difficult to say anything like that. I think teams like Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are winning consistently, they will go to every venue with full confidence. I think teams that don’t have confidence will see the new venue as a problem, they will see trouble in the pitch. I am more worried about Mumbai Indians. They are going to a new venue and how will they perform there. I am scared of this team. ‘
Mumbai Indians have to meet Rajasthan Royals in Delhi today. Mumbai Indians are fourth in the point table with two wins and four points from five matches while Rajasthan Royals are seventh with two wins and four points from five matches. Mumbai Indians have a better net runrate, due to which the team remains in the top-4.
