2022 Indian Premier League Team Preview: Mumbai Indians

The cricket’s biggest showpiece event is all set to begin from 26th May as fans are all geared up to see their favorite stars in action. The most successful franchise in the history of Indian Premier League is Mumbai Indians led by Rohit Sharma

Mumbai will be looking to turn their fortunes around after failing to qualify for the playoffs of the competition played last year.

The franchise has lifted the crown on five occasions (2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020) making it the only side to win the league on three occasions. Mumbai Indians retained Captain Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah for the coming season. The team management decided to stick with players who have done well with the franchise for the past five years.

Rohit Sharma will be keen to continue his decent form with the bat for Mumbai Indians in the coming edition of Indian Premier League. The opener has produced scintillating performances for the side. He is the premier batsman for the franchise and has the tendency to deliver big scores when it matters the most. Mumbai Indians also made big changes for the coming season as Ishan Kishan is going to open the innings alongside Rohit Sharma for the coming season. Tilak Verma is another inclusion to the franchise as the left-handed batsman has done well in the domestic T20I competition.

Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard and Ishan Kishan are experienced players in the batting department, who will be keen to make an impression for Mumbai in the coming edition of Indian Premier League.

Mumbai Indians did make wholesale changes in their bowling department as the franchise have made notable acquisitions such as Daniel Sams, Fabian Allen, Murugan Ashwin, Jofra Archer, Tymal Mills, Riley Meredith and Jaydev Unadkat.. Mumbai have plenty of depth in terms of all-rounders as Kieron Pollard, Tim David, Fabien Allen and Daniel Sams bring a lot to the side with bat and ball.

Wicket-keeper opening batsman Ishan Kishan will be a key player for the side after performing exceedingly well at the international level for India for the past 12 months. The left-hander will be keen to do well for Mumbai Indians in this edition to make sure they go the distance in this year’s Indian Premier League.

The overall squad for Mumbai Indians is quite strong with Rohit Sharma leading the side. The franchise will be serious contenders with plenty of in-form players in the lineup such Tim David, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah and Tymal Mills.The side has emerging players in their ranks such as Tilak Verma, Arjun Tendulkar, Dewald Brewis, Anmolpreet Singh, and Rahul Buddhi for the coming edition of the Indian Premier League.

The only worry for Mumbai will be that there is lack of depth in the middle-order players for the coming season of Indian Premier League.

Mumbai Indians will be determined to do well in this year’s tournament. Here are players to watch out for 2022 Indian Premier League.

Players to watch out for

Premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah will be our pick in the bowling department for Mumbai Indians. The pace bowler has been a bankable performer for Mumbai Indians for the coming edition of the Indian Premier league. Bumrah finished the competition for Mumbai Indian as the leading-wicket taker in the previous edition with 27 wickets at an economy rate of 6.73.The franchise will be hoping that he can do even better with the ball in this year’s competition.

There is no doubt that middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav holds the key for Mumbai this season. The middle-order batsman will be our pick for the coming season as leading run-scorer for the side. Suryakumar Yadav had a decent outing with the bat last season but will look to replicate his good form in this year’s competition.

Mumbai Indians

Likely XI: Rohit Sharma (captain), Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak VArma/Suryakumar Yadav, Anmolpreet Singh, Tim David, Kieron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, Daniel Sams, Murugan Ashwin, Tymal Mills, Basil Thampi.
