With eyes more on the coming edition, IPL-2022 as two teams are on the list to be added in the coming season. Former Indian Cricketer and Cricket Analyst, Aakash Chopra has uncovered his decision for the three players that Mumbai Indians ought to hold or utilise a RTM card for in the forthcoming sales for the Indian Premier League’s fifteenth release.
This, obviously, given that all groups will be permitted to hold three players while utilising a RTM for one.
Mumbai Indians have been the best franchise throughout the entire existence of the alliance with five titles added to their repertoire, trailed by Chennai Super Kings, who have three trophies in their name.
MI has been known for its splendid strategies in the sale as they have made a heavenly group throughout the long term, including both youthful and experienced players.
Talking about the possible maintenance and RTM decision for the Indians, Aakash Chopra recommended that the five-time champions would be better off if there was no- sell off by any means.
“It will be the most difficult task for the Mumbai Indians. They will want the auction not to happen at all. They would prefer a mini-auction as their team is already set having built such a good side. But they have no option,” said Aakash Chopra.
“If only two retention and one RTM card is allowed, I think the first retention has to be Rohit Sharma because the team has been built around him. He is their marquee player and you will find it difficult to get a better captain than him in the entire IPL.”added by him.
“Second has to be Jasprit Bumrah because there is no one like him. Bumrah is a bank because there are only 2-3 bowlers like him in the IPL. One is Jofra, the other is Bumrah and maybe Kagiso Rabada although I do rate Jofra and Bumrah slightly above him in the T20 format,”
“I think the RTM should be used for Hardik Pandya. They will want to use it for him because at some stage he will start bowling and he is an asset. The number at which he bats, the sort of player he is, I feel you will want to retain him,” concluded Chopra.
