Former Australian threaten pacer Brett Lee has realised that the ''Hitman'' Rohit Sharma will give them a flying start at the top of the order in the upcoming Dream11 IPL 2020. The Mumbai Indians skipper would release the pressure on the other players by scoring runs at the top order. The former Aussie fast bowler responded that the Mumbai Indians skipper needs to concentrate on his batting mainly while expecting the rest of the team members to play around him to consolidate their position in the tournament.

Brett Lee feels that the ''Hitman'' led Mumbai Indians(MI) are in his top two favourite teams. He pointed out their explosive batting order, with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya as they provide MI to enormous firepower to their lineup in the upcoming Dream11 IPL 2020 so that 'Mumbai Indians' chances in IPL 2020 in the UAE must be high. On the other hand, their pace attack in the form of Jaspreet Bumrah, Trent Boult, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya. Meanwhile, a slight area of concern could be in the spin-bowling like Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya which may suffer a little bit which might cause the MI brigade. 

Lee revealed that "The most important thing for Rohit Sharma is firstly to score runs for Mumbai Indians. He has got to be a good leader but I think being a good leader is a combination of leading from the front in terms of scoring runs and hopefully, the rest of the team will take care of itself."

"They are the champions coming off last year. They are a very good squad. Pollard is in form, Rohit Sharma we know what he can do. Jasprit Bumrah, obviously in terms of the bowlers. They have got some good spin options too and powerhouse hitting through the middle order. So, yes they are in my top four." he also added.

Mumbai Indians IPL 2020 Full Squad:

Rohit Sharma (c), Sherfane Rutherford, Suryakumar Yadav, Anmolpreet Singh, Chris Lynn, Saurabh Tiwary, Anukul Roy, Ishan Kishan (wk), Quinton de Kock (wk), Aditya Tare (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Anukul Roy, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jasprit Bumrah, James Pattinson, Mitchell McClenaghan, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Mohsin Khan, Prince Balwant Rai Singh, Digvijay Deshmukh, Jayant Yadav,  Nathan Coulter-Nile
