In the 39th match of IPL 2021, Mumbai Indians will face the team of Royal Challengers Bangalore. The start of the UAE leg has been poor for Rohit Sharma’s platoon and the team has lost both the matches they have played so far. After Chennai, KKR beat Mumbai by 7 wickets. Hardik Pandya’s fitness remains a matter of great concern for the team and the team is missing him a lot. Mumbai Indians Director of Cricket Operations Zaheer Khan has given a big update on Hardik’s fitness ahead of the match against RCB. He said that Pandya has started practice and a decision will be taken soon on whether he will play against Kohli’s team.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Zaheer said, “You have a practice session for us and we will see how Hardik is doing and only then we will take a call on him.” He has started practice and at this point I can tell you guys, we are hoping that he will be fit and available for the match against RCB. Hardik did not appear in the match against Chennai Super Kings and then Kolkata. Let us tell you that Hardik is also included in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup, which is why everyone’s eyes are on his fitness.

The Kolkata batsmen had thrashed the Mumbai fast bowlers. Jasprit Bumrah gave 43 runs in his 4 overs, Trent Boult had conceded 23 runs in just 2 overs and he could not even complete his spell. In batting, only captain Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock were seen in form for the team, while batsmen like Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan were very disappointed with their performance. To stay in the race for the playoffs, Mumbai will have to beat Bangalore at any cost.
