  4. The opening match of Mumbai Indians is set to be played in Bangalore at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
  5. Predicted Playing 11
  6. This year, the franchise succeeded in forming a team consisting of 24 players, of whom eight are players from overseas.
  7. Mumbai Indians have always emphasized the importance of a rounder who has managed the team’s lower order and provided the much-needed depth in the batting line-up, be it Hardik Pandya, Kunal Pandya or Kieron Pollard this team has been dependent on their All-Rounders.
  8. The franchise has decided to invest in rounder, which is exemplified by their recent purchase of the Australian all-rounder Cameron Green for 17.5Cr. This decision was likely influenced by the departure of their star player Kieron Pollard. The franchise seems to believe that investing in a talented rounder like Green will help fill the gap Pollard left and lead the team to success.
  9. The possible playing 11 for Mumbai Indians is as follows:-
  1. Rohit Sharma [C]
  2. Ishan Kishan [WK]
  3. Tilak Verma
  4. Surya Kumar Yadav
  5. Cameron Green [Overseas]
  6. Tim David [Overseas]
  7. Hrithik Shokeen
  8. Jason Behrendorff [Overseas]
  9. Jasprit Bumrah
  10. Jofra Archer[Overseas]
  11. Kumar Kartikeya.
  1. Player to watch out for Mumbai Indians in this IPL.
  2. Although the Mumbai side made good acquisitions in Cameron Green and Jason Behrendorff, the Indian pace department still appears to lack support with only Jaspreet Bumrah, Akash Madhwal, and Arjun Tendulkar on the team. However, overall, the team looks well balanced this year.
  3. This season, we may witness Jaspreet Bumrah making a comeback, and it is hard to ignore the current form of Surya Kumar Yadav, who is also ranked as the No.1 T20i batsman in the world.
  4. Given his performance last year, Tilak Verma could also be viewed as a potential rising star in the Mumbai squad.
  5. When it comes to the upcoming tournament, the Mumbai Indians squad is poised to be a strong and well-rounded team, thanks in part to the bounce and pace of the Mumbai pitch, which is expected to favour both the batsmen and bowlers on the squad. Despite facing some challenges in terms of lacking support in the Indian pace department, the team’s recent acquisitions, such as Cameron Green and Jason Behrendorff, have helped to balance out the team’s strengths. Additionally, the current form of Surya Kumar Yadav, who is currently ranked as the No.1 T20i batsman in the world, is sure to give the Mumbai Indians a boost. Another potential rising star on the squad is Tilak Verma, who showed promise with his performance in the previous year. All of these factors combined make the Mumbai Indians a force to be reckoned with in the tournament.
