In the First match against with Pune Supergiants, team struggle with the top order battings with the score of 30 in five overs and lost first four wickets. Also, they didn’t play their match as well up to 16th over of the innings.
We need to note that, the team was formed with the two legendaries such as Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting. And from the last few matches, Rohit Sharma take over the team with the position as skipper.
The new Indian colors, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandy both are placed on this team, but they also failed to score Big runs in the last match. Even the Pandya promoted on the position no. 3, but he scored only 9 runs. And the Bumrah conceding 30 runs without picked any wickets.
There might be some changes on the playing XI of MI with the wicketkeeper of Parthiv Patel and New Zealand’s all-rounder Corey Anderson instead of Mitchell McClenaghan. So the team should rethink about their batting and also the bowling strategy to win the Eden game today.
Rohit Sharma had said, “Hopefully, we will go back and come back with a positive frame of mind. Never thought the ball would do that much having played a lot of cricket here. They swung it a lot and our shot selection wasn’t great. We have good memories in Kolkata. It’s just the start of the tournament, no need to panic.”
