They are five-time IPL champions. They are, without a shadow of a doubt, the most successful IPL side ever. The Mumbai Indians have in their arsenal an array of players who can send a shiver down the spine of any opposition in world cricket.
On the other hand, there is the side that holds the No.1 ranking in T20I cricket, a side that has whitewashed the South African side recently in the Proteas’ own backyard. The England cricket team has grown leaps and bounds under the leadership of Eoin Morgan and is a force to reckon with in world cricket today, especially in the shorter formats.
So, how would it be, if the Mumbai Indians and the England cricket team combine together? In this article, let us take a look at the best combined England and Mumbai Indians T20 XI.
1. Quinton de Kock
He has extremely fast hands, picks the length quickly, and takes the attack to the opposition. At the top of the order, Quinton de Kock is an asset for any side he plays. The left-hander was in sublime form during the 13th edition of the IPL for the Mumbai Indians side. The diminutive batsman plundered 503 runs at a strike rate in excess of 140 to propel Mumbai to their fifth IPL triumph.
He was the second-highest run-scorer for the Mumbai franchise in the 2020 season of the IPL after Suryakumar Yadav. De Kock has scored 1959 runs in IPL cricket so far, including a hundred and 14 fifties. Even in T20I cricket, De Kock has an average in excess of 30 and has a strike rate of close to 140. He is currently the fifth-highest run-scorer for South Africa in T20Is as well.
