MI vs KKR in IPL 2021 – MI Playing XI: How will Piyush Chawla benefit Mumbai Indians?
The biggest problem MI face is in the spin department, something which again came to light during their first game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Left-arm spinner Krunal had a decent outing against RCB, ending his spells with figures 1/25. But it is Rahul Chahar, who was a big concern for Rohit Sharma.
Furthermore, both the spinners are more of a restrictive option, and this is where Chawla comes in. The leggie has 156 wickets in the IPL, the third-highest for any bowler in the league’s history.
