For the second half of the Indian Premier League 2021, Mumbai Indians have signed Roosh Kalaria to their team as an injury substitute for Mohsin Khan. The Gujarati allrounder travelled to Abu Dhabi as a support player with the Mumbai Indians squad and has now earned his first IPL contract.

The 28-year-old left-arm seamer has 37 wickets at an average of 19.91 and a strike rate of 18.20 in 31 T20s. He has been operating at a 6.53 economy rate. During the team’s training session today, he was inducted into the squad.

The Mumbai Indians will play Chennai Super Kings in the comeback match today, with the IPL 2021 restarting after a four-month hiatus, and the anticipation is palpable. Mumbai boasts one of the strongest squads in the IPL, with plenty of depth in all areas, and Mahela Jayawardene has done an outstanding job as a coach.

Ishan Kishan was dropped by the Mumbai Indians after a poor first-phase performance, but he had a fantastic season in UAE, the previous season. In IPL 2020, the left-hander hit the most sixes and earned a spot in the Indian team. In the remaining games of the IPL 2021, he will be hoping to build a name for himself.

Gautam Gambhir, a former India cricketer, feels the Mumbai Indians will have an advantage in the second phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in the United Arab Emirates because of their previous success in the country. Last season, Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians won their fifth IPL title after defeating Delhi Capitals in the final in Dubai.

As a result, Gambhir believes MI will have an advantage and has backed the most successful IPL team to finish in the league’s top two.
