Mumbai Indians 'Proud' Of Their Players' Match-Winning Performances Against England
Defending IPL champions Mumbai Indians, who will start the 2021 season as favourites, will be buoyed by the match-winning performances of their players during India's recent limited-overs series against England.
The Pandya brothers, both Hardik and Krunal, Rohit Sharma as well as Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav played key roles in helping India win the T20 International series 3-2 and the ODI series 2-1.
Mumbai Indians skipper Sharma, who is also the India vice-captain and opener, made a quickfire 64 to help India post a huge 224-run total in the fifth and final T20 International that India won to clinch the series. That apart he gave some good starts in the ODI series although he couldn't get a big score.
Earlier, in the T20I series, Ishan Kishan made a 32-ball 56 on his international debut to help India win the second T20 International and level the series 1-1.
Suryakumar Yadav then clicked in the fourth T20 International, hammering 57 off 31 balls to help India make 185 and win the match to again square the series at 2-2 and stay alive. Yadav made 32 off 17 balls in the fifth and final T20I as well.
The Pandya brothers, Krunal and Hardik, too did well.
