“It’s interesting to see a new sort of an innovation coming into the game. Only time will tell how the team copes with the new rule. I like the idea of a player coming in and changing a game after the toss,” Rohit Sharma said in the press conference before the tournament. “We will be playing the last game and so, we will be able to see what other teams do and how much beneficial it is. We are hoping to get some ideas from the game that happens before us.”

“He’s been playing recently. Hopefully he can kick-start the IPL with a bang,” Boucher said.

However, Mumbai Indians’ first match is against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on April 2 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. Rohit Sharma’s men will try to do well this season after failing to advance to the IPL playoffs in 2020 and 2021 as well.

It will be interesting to see how the captains use this new rule and what impact it has and whether it will alter other tactics used like the power play.
