About Mumbai Indians (MI)

Mumbai Indians is one of the two most successful teams of the IPL with 5 trophies in their cabinet. All the 5 titles have come under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma but his stint as the captain of MI is over now.

MI created headlines a few days ago when they successfully traded in Gujarat Titans’ skipper and all-rounder Hardik Pandya. Pandya came back to the MI camp with a bang as he has now replaced Rohit Sharma as the captain of the side.

Mumbai Indians have beefed up their bowling line-up by adding new players from IPL 2024 auction. South African pacer Gerald Coetzee ended up as the most expensive pick of Mumbai Indians at INR 5 crore.

MI Team Information

Mumbai Indians has seen its best game under the head coach Mahela Jayawardene but he was promoted to the global head of performance for the MI management team. Former South African wicket-keeper batter Mark Boucher was appointed as the MI head coach after Jayawardene.

After 2 back to back average seasons, Mumbai Indians lifted themselves in the last season by finishing at the 4th spot on the points table with 8 wins in 14 matches. They advanced to the playoffs and were eliminated in the 2nd Qualifier by Gujarat Titans.

Mumbai Indians team has been hit with a wave of injuries as their prime hitter Suryakumar Yadav is still not 100% fit and might miss the initial games or the whole season. Second in line is Sri Lankan pacer Dilshan Madushanka who has suffered a hamstring injury on the Bangladesh tour. He is also expecting to miss the first few games.

Another blow in the bowling unit is Jason Behrendorff, who broke his left leg during training in Australia. He was the leading pacer of the team in the last season. MI has roped in England’s left-arm pacer Luke Wood to replace Behrendorff. Wood does not have a lot of international experience but he has been part of all the popular franchise leagues like PSL, BPL, BBL, The Hundred and more. This will be his first ever IPL experience.

MI team key players

  • Rohit Sharma -Rohit Sharma has the opportunity to go all guns blazing with his batting as after so many years he will be stepping into the ground without having the pressure of being a captain of the team. Rohit smashed 332 runs in 16 matches last year at a strike rate of 132.80. We are expecting to see the old and dangerous Rohit Sharma form back and doing what he does the best at the top-order.

  • Ishan Kishan -The wicket-keeper batsman is a key player at the top-order for MI. Ishan Kishan has also picked some international experience in the past year. He has smashed 2324 runs so far at a strike rate of 134.26 in his IPL career.

  • Hardik Pandya -The star all-rounder is back to his first IPL team where it all started for him. MI released Cameron Green the moment they roped in Pandya which shows his relevance in the team. In 123 IPL matches, Hardik has scored 2309 runs and picked 53 wickets.

  • Jasprit Bumrah -Jasprit Bumrah is the yorker and death-bowl specialist and he has been a loyal MI player since the start of his IPL career. He has picked 145 wickets in 120 matches at a strike rate of 18.91. Bumrah had to miss the 2023 edition due to injury and we are expecting a good comeback from him this season.

  • Nuwan Thushara -Sri Lankan fast bowler Nuwan Thushara is touted as the second Malinga for his similar side-arm bowling action. Thushara has recently picked up a hattrick in the T20I against Bangladesh and ended with a 5-wicket haul in the same match. Thushara has picked 120 wickets in 87 T20 matches so far.

Expert Prediction

Expert Prediction for MI

Mumbai Indians can advance to playoffs

If MI can go to playoffs with the 2023 season squad then they can surely reach the mark again with this beefed up squad. Hardik Pandya will be the full-time captain of the team and he has experience of leading GT to a title win in their debut season in 2022.

Hardik Pandya, Gerald Coetzee, Romatio Shepherd and Nuwan Thushara will strengthen the MI squad for the 2024 season. They had a good batting line-up in the last edition and with Bumrah and Coetzee at the pace attack, they look more powerful now. The spin department is something they need to worry about.

Can MI Win IPL 2024?

As mentioned above, we are predicting that MI can qualify for the playoffs in the IPL 2024. We have all witnessed Mumbai Indians’ performance in the playoffs where they are quite difficult to beat and that is how the 5 IPL trophies are shining bright in their cabinet.

Mumbai Indians have a squad which can get them the much-awaited 6th title if they can utilise the players to their full-potential. Bumrah’s participation in the IPL 2024 will be a key factor for the team.
