Mumbai Indians will win IPL 2021: Michael Vaughan Predicts
Mumbai Indians have yet another opportunity to become the first side to win the IPL 2021 trophy thrice in a row this year.
The most anticipated cricket carnival season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is just a couple of days away. This will the fourteenth edition of the competition will take place on April 9 with the mouthwatering clash between reigning champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai. The rest of the eight teams are looking strong on the paper.
All the other franchises checked all the boxes by adding new players to their respective squads during the auction in February. But Mumbai Indians will have a great chance to become the first-ever team to win the IPL thrice in a row as they eye a record-extending sixth title. Ont the other hand, Chennai Super Kings will be looking to make a strong comeback after their poor outing in IPL 2020.
Kolkata Knight Riders haven’t won the IPL title since 2014, this time they will be desperate to win the title too. Sunrisers Hyderabad is also quite a good team and they also not won the IPL since 2016.
Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, haven’t tasted the IPL trophy-winning glory since the inaugural edition in 2008. Other teams like Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Capitals, and Punjab Kings will be looking to end their long wait for their first-ever IPL title this year.
Micheal Vaughan’s prediction on Mumbai Indians – IPL 2021
All the teams are looking really strong this year, we can expect another cracking edition of the Indian Premier League. The time will tell which team manages to lift the trophy this time. Former England captain Michael Vaughan has revealed his prediction. He has predicted that Mumbai Indians would win the title once again.
He takes his Twitter account, Vaughan also stated that if Mumbai Indians failed to win the title due to ‘some bizarre loss of form’, Sunrisers Hyderabad would win it as he tweeted: “Early #IPL2021 prediction … @mipaltan will win it … if by some bizarre loss of form then @SunRisers will win it …”
Here is Vaughan’s Tweet
He might seem a big fan of Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians. Recently against the England T20 series, the former England cricketer had said that the Mumbai Indians team is stronger than the Indian team. He said this when India lost their 1st T20I against England at Ahmedabad in the five-match T20I series last month.
