3. Kieron Pollard - Mumbai Indians
The West Indies skipper has been an inspirational cricketer for Mumbai Indians over the years. While he has always stepped up in absence of Rohit Sharma, Pollard will be the man once again in IPL 2021 to take the leadership responsibilities in case Hitman is unavailable. The player from Trinidad and Tobago has captained the MI side five times, leading them to victory in four matches. With Sharma having a few niggles in recent times, the franchise can rest him if required as they have an able skipper in the form of Pollard.
