Chuck, Marry and Frill | Who Mumbai Indians should let go and retain ahead of IPL 2021

Let us not kid ourselves: Mumbai Indians, like they did in 2020, are going to run away with the IPL title in 2021. It is a matter of ‘when’ and ‘how’ more than if. This article, mind you, is being done as a mere formality, just like how the trophy presentation for MI will be in about 5 months time.

Chuck, Marry and Frill | Who KXIP should let go and retain ahead of IPL 2021

We’re not here to review KKR’s 2020 but let us put this out there: the best performance from anyone related to the franchise came from CEO Venky Mysore on Ravichandran Ashwin’s YouTube channel. It is a nice interview, by the way. Pretty insightful it was.
