If you have to name Indian Premier League's most prominent and successful team, Mumbai Indians will be among the list. The team has always been a perfect balance of experienced players and the young talents. Players such as Captain Rohit Sharma, Lasith Malinga, and Kieron Pollard have always energized young talents like Jasprit Bumrah, Pandya Brothers, and Mayank Markande as well.
In this season, MI's batting looks promising and incredible. The top order is settled with Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Evin Lewis and newly added Quinton De Kock, who adds value not only as a wicketkeeper but also as a destructive opener. With addition of Yuvraj Singh in the team - who was one of the auction's main talking points, middle order of Mumbai Indians seems to be getting more stronger with already some big names involved in it like Rohit Sharma, the Pandya brothers and Kieron Pollard.
The bowling will depend heavily upon Jasprit Bumrah who has perfected the art of bowling yorkers, with specializing in death overs too and he will be fairly supported by the likes of Mitchell McClenaghan and Jason Behrendorff. Lasith Malinga's experience can come handy for the team but his form and fitness is a matter of concern these days.
In this 12th edition of Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians are going to play their first match against Delhi Capitals on 24th March in Wankhede Stadium. Lets see whether the three time title holder with strong batting and bowling combination can win the title for fourth time.
