With 4 wins and 3 losses, Rohit Sharma is leading Mumbai Indians (MI) as a captain. As for now, MI sits on the number 4th position on IPL 2019 team table.
Sadly, the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore (Virat Kohli), wasn’t able to do much for his team in this season of the IPL. After 6 consecutive losses, RCB was able to win the last match. That’s still no good and the team is sitting at the last position on IPL table 2019.
