IPL 2019, Match 3: MI vs DC - Three reasons why the fans would be excited about this clash
- Will a fresh start change things for the Delhi franchise or will Mumbai return to its winning ways?
#2 The Pandya brothers will be in action
Among the strong points for MI is the fact that they have two extremely talented and gifted T20 players and allrounders in their squad. Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya rose to fame and have made it to the national team based on their consistent performances for MI.
With the World Cup coming up, everyone would be eagerly interested to see how many games Hardik plays in this year's IPL. He is coming off an injury and the last thing Indian fans would want is for him to aggravate that while playing for MI.
But goes without saying that Rohit Sharma would use both the Pandya brothers at crucial junctures. Krunal is very critical to Rohit's plans as he brings him on in the power play overs. He also used him at the death overs and with the absence of Lasith Malinga, Krunal's role increases.
And assuming Hardik is fit and can bowl four overs, he is certainly an added asset for MI. Both the brothers are excellent fielders and safe catchers, Hardik's attacking batting is the X-factor. If he gets going he can demolish the opposition.
It would be thrilling to see both the Pandya brothers in action against Delhi Capitals later on tonight.
