Mumbai’s spin department
In the 2022 edition, Mumbai’s major area of concern was the spin department. In the middle overs (7-15), their spinners picked up only 12 wickets, the least after Sunrisers Hyderabad. This year, they have roped in the experienced Piyush Chawla and Shams Mulani. The latter was excellent for Mumbai in the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy.
Main core batting line-up
In their batting department their old guard will be the key, with skipper Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan all are in terrific form. This year’s Mumbai’s batting line-up well built-up.
In the mini auction, Mumbai Indians went for Ishan Kishan shelling out 15.25 crores, making him the most expensive buy in the 2022 auction. Kishan was the only one from the core group Mumbai could re-sign. Ishan Kishan slammed 418 runs in 14 matches and scored the highest number of runs for MI last season.
Jofra Archer returns
In bowling department, they do not have a star pacer Jasprit Bumrah. But the return of Jofra Archer will be a sign of relief for the Mumbai camp. In Tymal Mills, MI will have the left-arm angle and he will most probably form a part of pace trio consisting of veteran Jaydev Unadkat who is a left-arm pacer as well.
