Sachin Tendulkar As a Confidence Booster

When asked by Aakash Chopra who do you back for winning the IPL this year, Sachin said “Of course the men in blue, are there any doubts? I have always been in blue everywhere. When Mumbai and Indians come together it becomes Mumbai Indians.”

Looking at the squad of Mumbai Indians this season, they have a very strong bowling line up with Trent Boult coming to the squad this year as a replacement for Lasith Malinga(who opted out of IPL 13 due to personal reasons along with speedsters like  Jasprit Bumrah, Dhawal Kulkarni and spinners like Krunal Pandya.

In the batting department, they have the captain courageous Rohit Sharma, South African opener Quinton De Kock with middle-order depth such as Surya Kumar Yadav, and trustworthy finishers like Hardik Pandya and the fierce hitter Kieron Pollard.

After seeing the squad one may surely say that Mumbai Indians are surely a top contender with the form and courage they showed last year.

But the competition in IPL can never be taken for granted and that’s why it’s the most-watched and loved domestic cricket league. 

Every team is full of talent and ready to give it their all, it all comes down to that final courage and determination to decide who will lift the trophy.

Sachin’s statement will surely be a big confidence booster for the Mumbai Indians players and their fans will hope that whatever the Master blaster has said comes true at the end of the season.
