“The Mumbai Indians will be tough to beat. We just saw their players form. Ishan Kishan, Suryakunar Yadav – the way they hit. Hardik Pandya – the way he came today,” said Gavaskar, UK Time News reported.

The Pandya brothers – Krunal and Hardik – also assisted India in the ODI series. Krunal had made his debut in white ball cricket and in Game 1 he had beaten the fastest fifty of all time in his ODI debut. Hardik also completed 86 races in 5 games in the T20I, but scored 100 points in 3 ODI.

Speaking about Hardik’s full form, Gavaskar said: “Not just for the Mumbai Indians it was important for Indian cricket to see Pandya bowl 9 overs. This shows that he is also ready to play in the Test format. It is [the WTC final] in June, there is still time. But the way it came back… it’s very, very good for the Indians in Mumbai as well as for Indian cricket.

“So the Indian players from Mumbai who competed in the T20I and ODI series, showed that they were in very good shape. You saw Chahal get hammered, you saw Kuldeep get hammered … Rajasthan Royals are not in the Indian squad. So I don’t know what kind of performance they’re going to put together. “

As for the IPL clash, the five-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) begin their campaign against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the season opener on April 9 in Chennai.
