The French are eagerly awaiting the 16th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the world’s biggest T20 cricket league. Starting from 31st March, fans are especially keen to see Mumbai Indians – a team that has won the title more times than any other – take part. They are sure to be considered strong contenders once again.
The Mumbai Indians are once again ready to counterattack
It was a tough year for Mumbai Indians last season, where they finished last, but they made some such bets in the mini auction that once again their camp appeared strong and balanced. It used to be. This is a team that cannot be ignored this time around. This article tells you why Mumbai Indians are dangerous this time, what their strengths and weaknesses are, as well as the team’s combination, key players, schedule, and squad….
The top order of the Mumbai Indians is their greatest strength
Discussing the strength of the IPL champion squad, their batting is supported by remarkable depth. With Rohit Sharma and Ishaan Kishan at the top, followed by skilled batters such as Tilak Verma and Suryakumar Yadav, Mumbai Indians can be sure to have plenty of firepower in their innings. Their order is so strong that it could be perceived as their biggest asset.
As a result, he will become the team’s weakest link without the support of match winner Bumrah
Mumbai Indians have been the most successful team in the IPL, largely due to their incredible brigade. It is difficult to forget the tenacious contribution of fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, otherwise known as ‘Yorker King’. His ability to take vital wickets and help his team make miraculous comebacks has been invaluable. However, this time they will not be able to benefit from Bumrah’s presence, as he has been injured; providing a massive blow to the bowling line-up. Although Jofra Archer will replace him, it is highly unlikely that such a gap can be filled adequately. It is certain that Rohit Sharma and Co. will miss their biggest weapon.
The three players with special eyes will be these three
The blue jersey brigade in IPL this year has several match-winning players, some of which are the players to watch out for throughout the season, Suryakumar Yadav being one of them. It has been an amazing 18 months for him in T20 cricket. The team will also have million dollar baby Cameron Green and fast bowler Joffra Archer in a special role, both of whom will prove to be the biggest match winners of the entire year.
Combination of the Kaisa Ho team
At the top of the Mumbai Paltan’s line-up are Rohit Sharma and Ishaan Kishan, who are set to open the innings. Tilak Verma, who impressed last year, could be given a chance at number-3 and Suryakumar Yadav follows after at number-4. After them come all-rounders Cameron Green, Tim David and Ramandeep Singh. Kumar Kartikeya and Piyush Chawla will provide spin bowling support, with Jofra Archer and Jason Behrendorff there for pace bowling. With this team composition, the best playing eleven can be put together.
