If a team is a strong contender to become the winner in every season of IPL, then it is Mumbai Indians.  The 2022 season was nothing short of a nightmare for Mumbai, who won the league the most 5 times.  In the entire season, Rohit Sharma’s team could win only 4 matches and finished last in the table.  Bad bowling and poor batting drowned Mumbai’s chances .  Now in the new season, the team will hit the ground with renewed enthusiasm.  Mumbai will start their campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore on 2nd April.

 Mumbai Indians have the leading batsmen of the Indian team like Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav. Young Tilak Verma is a great talent.    Tim David is an explosive name in the middle order.  In the auction, the franchise bought Cameron Green of Australia for a huge amount.  Two young South African batsmen are Tristan Stubbs and Dewald Brewis and both are big strikers of the ball .  In such a situation, the batting of the team is looking very strong.
 In bowling, MI has big names like Jofra Archer.  He is counted among the  top fast bowlers of international cricket.  In spin, the franchise has bought veteran Piyush Chawla.  Jason Behrendorff will also play for Mumbai.

 Jasprit Bumrah and Jhye Richardson of Australia will not be able to play in IPL.  In the absence of Bumrah, the team does not have any experienced domestic fast bowler.  The franchise has not even announced his replacement.  In spin too, apart from Chawla, there is no other pedigreed  name that other teams may fear.

To sum up , Mumbai has a good batting lineup but the bowling is dented due to the absence of Bumrah and also to some extent  Jhye Richardson. Also there is lack of depth in spin department .

 However, there are many young faces in the team of Mumbai Indians, who can surprise. Hrithik Shokeen is a talented upcoming youngster. The biggest name in this is that of Shams Mulani.  Mulani is a big name in domestic cricket but is yet to get a chance to make his IPL debut.  He can become a match-winning all-rounder for the team.  Arshad Khan is such a player in the Mumbai team, whose name is known to few people but he can be a game changer.  He can do wonders with both the ball and the bat.

MI squad : Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Cameron Green, Tim David, Ramandeep Singh, Tilak Verma, Piyush Chawla, Ishan Kishan, Tristan Stubbs, Dewald Brewis, Jofra Archer, Arjun Tendulkar, Arshad Khan, Kumar Karthikeya, Hrithik Shokeen  , Jason Behrendorff, Duanne Johnson, Vishnu Vinod, Shams Mulani, Nehal Wadhera, Raghav Goyal, Akash Madhwal.
