Ahead of the first game of IPL 2021, former England skipper Michael Vaughan has predicted that the defending champions Mumbai Indians are going to win the upcoming season as well.
Vaughan believes that MI paltan can complete a hat-trick of title victories in the IPL. He also stated that if by chance the Mumbai Indians suffer ‘some bizarre loss of form’, then he expects the David Warner-led Sunrisers Hyderabad to win the title.
“Early #IPL2021 prediction, @mipaltan will win it. If by some bizarre loss of form then @SunRisers will win it . #OnOn #India,” Vaughan tweeted on Wednesday.
Defending champions Mumbai Indians will begin their campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the season opener in Chennai on April 9. Mumbai Indians will start as favorites once again after they lifted the trophy last season outplaying almost everyone throughout the season.
Mumbai Indians have the chance to become the first team to win 3 IPL titles on the trot. The IPL matches will initially be played behind closed doors due to increase in COVID positive cases throughout the country.
