New Zealand pacer Trent Boult praised Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma and stated that Rohit backs his players to execute their skills. The Kiwi player has been a part of MI since last season. He was traded to Mumbai Indians from Delhi Capitals ahead of IPL 2020. The seamer proved to be an excellent addition to the team. He ended up being the third-highest wicket-taker in IPL 2020.

Boult picked up 25 wickets and was also MI's highest wicket-taker in the tournament after Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah (27). The New Zealander is spotted fourth in the Purple Cap list with six wickets to his name in three matches at a brilliant average of 15.17. Boult is going to continue his excellent form in the forthcoming games and help Mumbai Indians secure their third IPL title in a row.

Rohit Sharma looked in good touch against Delhi Capitals

Mumbai Indians have had a mixed season so far. The Defending Champions have won two matches and lost as many in the 14th edition. After getting off to a losing start against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL opener, Mumbai bounced back with two successive wins against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). However, they lost to Delhi Capitals (DC), whom they had defeated in IPL 2020 final to lift a record fifth IPL title.

The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians, who Delhi Capitals defeated, will bounce back more robustly in the upcoming match. MI skipper Rohit Sharma shone with the bat, but other players could not get going. The misfiring middle-order would be a significant concern for the team in the remaining matches. The MI bowlers have more often risen to the occasion and won games for the team. However, they couldn't do so the same against DC. MI batters should perform with the bat to put up more significant scores for the side. Rohit Sharma looked in good touch against Delhi Capitals. It will be interesting to see who wins the next match as both PBKS and MI have lost their previous games. Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings will lock horns on 23rd April at Chennai.
