Mumbai Indians: 

Mumbai Indians are the most successful team in the Indian premier league with 5 titles in their bag out of 15 but the last season was a nightmare for the franchise.

Strategy for the 2023 Season

After a horrifying season last year, the team management has been emphasizing more on building a strong core for upcoming seasons. The top order of MI is quite stable and is full of experience, talent, and skills. Rohit Sharma along with Ishan Kishan will open the innings and Tilak Verma will be the best-suited choice for third position, Surya Kumar Yadav is fixed for 4th spot, MI may look to fit in Ramandeep Singh at No. 5, and the lower middle order looks quite settled with the inclusion of Cameron Green who will bat after Tim David to have some power hitting at the end. The Fast Bowling department will be led by Jofra Archer in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah along with Jhye Richardson, experienced Piyush Chawla and Kumar Kartikeya can be the inclusion to playing 11 for a spin.

Probable Playing 11

Rohit Sharma ( C), Ishan Kishan (WK), Surya Kumar Yadav, Tilak Verma, Ramandeep Singh, Tim David, Cameron Green, Jofra Archer, Piyush Chawla, Jhye Richardson, and Kumar Kartikeya.

Rohit Sharma (Captain)

One of the prominent reasons for MI's success is their captain Rohit Sharma. He joined MI in the 2011 Auction and since then they have managed 5 titles in his captaincy.

He has scored 5879 runs in his career having played 227 Matches with an average of 30.30 and a strike rate of 129.89.

Suryakumar Yadav

Also known as SKY and Mr.360 he has been the key to MI's success. He scores the bulk of the runs in middle overs making it easier for the finishers in adding big scores to the total. SKY earlier played for MI from 2011 to 2013 but was later part of Kolkata knight riders till 2017 again he was bought by Mumbai Indians in 2018 and since then he has been a prominent player for the MI. Surya has scored 2644 runs at an average of 30.04 and a strike rate of 136.78

Ishan Kishan

He was the most expensive buy of Mumbai Indians in the 2022 IPL auction at Rs 15.25 crore. The first season of Ishan Kishan with Mumbai was in 2018 and since then he has been a crucial member of Mumbai Indians. He has scored 1870 Runs with an average of 29.21 and a strike rate of 132.34.

Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit is the most promising player Mumbai Indians ever had in the auction as a youngster. MI bought Jasprit in the 2013 IPL auction for a base price of 10 lakhs. Malinga played an important role in the career of the speedster as he guided him about the execution of yorkers which made him so effective. He has taken 145 wickets with an average of 23.31 and a strike rate of 18.91 and has managed to keep his economy below 7.5. He will not be part of MI this season due to injury.

Jofra Archer

One of the prominent players who helped England win their first World Cup title was added to MI squad in 2022 however he did not play a single match due to injury and Mumbai Indians still chose to bed on him keeping their future endeavors in view. He has taken 46 wickets with an average of 21.32 and a strike rate of 17.93 and managed an economy of 7.13. He can also be handy with the bat and play some crucial knocks.

Dewald Brevis

The youngster from South Africa has shown promise in the 2022 edition of IPL. He has a batting style almost the same as AB de Villiers and that is why he is also known as Baby AB. His hard-hitting ability has given MI the option to bet on him for the long term. He has scored 161 runs at an average of 23 and a strike rate of 142.47.

Tilak Varma

Namboori Thakur Tilak Varma, yes you read that right this is his full name and he has shown the franchise that they can bank on him for a very long and will not disappoint the team with his performance. He scored the most runs for MI last season I.e 397 runs with an average of 36.09 and a strike rate of 131.02.

Jhye Richardson

Australian right arm pacer does not have much experience with IPL but has international exposure and has shown his abilities worldwide. His role will be more prominent in this IPL as Jaspreet Bumrah won't be available for this entire season.
