Former wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel believes that defending champions Mumbai Indians have a balanced team. They do not need to tamper much with their playing eleven in the upcoming season. He said that even though Mumbai will not play a single match at their home ground this year, it will not make much difference to this team.
Parthiv Patel on Mumbai Indians
Talking on the Star Sports show, Parthiv Patel said, “I don’t think the team of Mumbai Indians will think much about where to play. However, the rest of the teams must be thinking about where to play. According to that, the team will be making combinations so that they can come down with their best XI in the tournament. But Mumbai would not be thinking so. ”

He added, “If you are playing in Chennai, then you will focus on the spinners in your team, but I don’t think Mumbai will think of anything like that. He will not have to think much about his playing XI.”
Parthiv believes that Mumbai will benefit from Hardik Pandya’s bowling. He said, “Hardik Pandya is bowling a lot now. He is completing his four overs. Pollard also bowls his slow ball exceptionally well. He can prove to be effective in Chennai. Rahul Chahar has a promising IPL career. , Due to which he got a chance in Team India. Krunal Pandya has done well in domestic cricket. ”
