Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians will kick-start their IPL 2021 campaign against Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the season opener at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on April 9. As the Men in Blue and Gold comprehensively won the title last season, they haven't made many changes in the side and would like to replicate their heroics.

The likes of skipper Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya were impressive in the recently-concluded series against England. At the same time, a fresh Jasprit Bumrah would be raring to resume action. Hence, all teams must beware of the mighty Mumbai Indians.
