MI vs SRH: As Mumbai Indians will be taking the field for the third time in IPL 2021, there will be a lot of questions that will need answering especially related to their batting department. In both the games that they have played until now, despite a decent show from their bowlers, their batters have failed to live up to the expectations which were strapped onto them.
The first and foremost quandary that the management will be facing is who will be the apt choice between Chris Lynn and Quinton De Kock. Lynn produced a fine performance in the season opener and outshined every other batter in the Indian’s echelons while De Kock had a woeful show in the following game as he skied Varun Chakravarthy early in the innings to return to the pavilion for a minimal 2.
Hyderabad will be desperate to find their stride after losing both the games of IPL 2021 until now. They couldn’t even close to Kolkata Knight Riders in the season opener despite a decent show from Manish Pandey and their second game slipped away from their very vice n the dying embers of the game. Needless strokes from Jos Buttler and Manish Pandey cost them the game from almost a winning situation.
To mention the most important point for Warner, they still have Jason Roy and Kane Williamson in their ranks. Kane is a part of the finest batting triptych that also comprises Steven Smith and Virat Kohli and yet is neglected like no other. In fact, Jason Roy is one of the most rollicking hitters of the ball and will prove to be extremely handy alongside David Warner.
These are our captaincy and vice-captaincy choices for the upcoming MI vs SRH game which can come in handy for you while you are making the Dream11 fantasy team.
Here is why these will be the best captaincy and vice-captaincy choices for MI vs SRH:
Captaincy: Rohit Sharma
Rohit did get off to a fiery start but lost his track midway in the preceding game. Playing a few exotic cover drives and a couple of classic pulls that has always been the signature shot of the Hitman. Though IPL 2021 is still to witness persistent brilliance from the Mumbai Indians skipper, it is needless to say that Rohit does take a couple of knocks to get himself set and once he is sailing, he simply doesn’t know how to relent.
Another important facet of his innings is his ability to strike those monumental hits that speed up his run-scoring process and also plays a significant role in ramping up the fantasy points. Given his new-form proclivity towards bowling, an over or two in the middle may even get a wicket. He is a perfect pick for tomorrow’s captaincy.
Vice-Captaincy: David Warner
Warner is one of the prodigious southpaws of the world and is also one of the most successful batters of IPL as he was successful in notching up three Orange Caps in the tournament’s glittering antiquity.
Till the time he remained at the crease against Royal Challengers Bangalore, things looked bleak for Kohli and company. Unfortunately, he couldn’t last until the end and had to walk back to the pavilion after a decent fielding effort from Dan Christian. He is a fearsome hitter of the ball and can be reckless once he gets into the groove.
Despite slowing down over the years, his marauding instinct still remains as sharp as a hunter and he can bring down entire establishments on his given day. Given the fact that Sunrisers may resort to playing Kane Williamson in the following encounter, this will provide a boatload of reliability to Warner and will give him the license to go for the much-needed kill.
