Sanjay Manjrekar says that Mumbai Indians are playing like West Indies in the 70s. He also added that they have good confidence in them. Mumbai Indians won the final league match against Sunrisers Hyderabad and RCB’s loss took them to playoffs. Rohit Sharma and Cameron Green scored well in the match at their home. Green registered his maiden IPL century. Rohit Sharma coming back to form at the correct time.

“With Mumbai Indians, I guess, like the West Indies in the 70s and Australia later, just that winning vibe in the dressing room. So anyone who comes in knows that he is with a side that is superior to the others, and that is the confidence they will take into the game, no matter who the captain is,” Manjrekar said while speaking on Star Sports.
He further added that
“With Mumbai Indians, the other thing to highlight is that what’s got them back into this tournament is high-class batting. We have all underestimated the quality of some of their bowlers. Chawla coming back into IPL cricket from virtual retirement, brilliant performance as a mainstay spinner. Behrendorff sort of under the radar, always took powerplay wickets,” Sanjay Manjrekar added.
“Halfway through this season, you realize Mumbai Indians just didn’t have a team. Bumrah wasn’t there, Archer wasn’t there, their batting wasn’t firing, and it looked like a team that would continue to be average for a while in future IPLs as well. And suddenly, this turnaround,” Manjrekar concluded.
