The IPL 2021 is around the corner and all the franchises have finalized their squads. In the recently held auction, the teams were seen aggressively bidding for players and getting them on board with huge salaries. Ahead of the tournament, all the teams will now sit and make their preferred XIs so that when the tournament starts, they are ready to unleash their team. 

Most of the teams have got a balanced first XI to start the tournament with, but in each team, there are certain players, who play not just an important role but are invaluable to the cause of the side. Every franchise has some players who are expected to play in all the matches. 

Ahead of the IPL 2021 season, let us take a look at five players from each of the franchises who are surely going to be in the starting XI. These players are included, considering their form and their role in their respective franchises.

The greatest strength of Mumbai Indians over the years has been the fact that they have maintained their core players. Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard have been with Mumbai Indians for as long as anyone can remember. The captain was signed in 2011 while his deputy had come to the Indians way back in 2011. 

Hardik Pandya is another crucial player for them. From scouting him, picking him at the IPL auction, and then backing his capabilities, Mumbai has done everything in the making of the all-rounder. The same story is Jasprit Bumrah. Mumbai Indians’ have made them the players they are and they are now delivering their best in home championships again and again. 

The last of this core has to be Suryakumar Yadav, who arrived at the franchise only in 2018 but has become a key player for them. Before 2018, Mumbai had an issue with having Rohit Sharma at the top and he was slotted in the middle-order. Suryakumar has played the role of a dependable batsman and that has made him the fifth name on the team sheet for every match.
