Now, this is Indian Premier League 2020. This is an even year. However, Rohit Sharma feels that Mumbai Indians and their fans are in for a treat since this is the 13th version of the event. 13 is an odd number. So, if the mysterious connection of odd numbers and Rohit Sharma plays its charm, then there is a possibility MI might bag the trophy this time.

The point to keep in consideration is that it’s not the franchise which works with odd numbers but it’s Sharma. When he was playing with Deccan Charges in 2009, that trophy was bagged by DC.
