In the IPL, only Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant have done well. Suryakumar Yadav and Ishant Kishan, who initially faded after KL Rahul’s consistent performances, returned to form in the last few matches, giving India hope. Fans are watching to see if all-rounder Hardik Pandya can bowl. Not a single player has bowled for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL. Therefore, Hardik was given the role of finisher and Akshar Patel was replaced by pace all-rounder Shardul Thakur in the BCCI squad.
