The team of Mumbai Indians is the most successful team in the history of Indian Premier League. Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, the team has won a record five titles.

He is injured in his first match of IPL in the series of consecutive defeats that have been going on for the last eight years. Not surprising, but it is true. The team of Mumbai Indians has been losing their first match of every season of IPL since the year 2013. In such a situation, now that the team of Mumbai will once again face Royal Challengers Bangalore in their opening match, they should not be sprinkled with salt on this wound, for this, they have to control a player of Virat Kohli’s team in every situation. Have to get. The name of this player is AB De Villiers.
Rohit Sharma will also have to be especially careful with the cricket world’s Mr. 360 degree AB de Villiers as the veteran’s performance against Mumbai Indians has been spectacular. By the year 2019, AB de Villiers had played 21 matches against Mumbai. In this, he hit 656 runs at an excellent average of 43.73. In this, he scored more than 50 scores four times and his strike rate against Mumbai was 142.29.

In two matches of the previous season, AB scored 70 runs against 36 balls against Mumbai. In such a situation, if Mumbai has to win the opening match of IPL 2021 to break the chain of consecutive defeats for eight years, then it will have to send AB to the pavilion as soon as possible.
