The Mumbai Indians are without a doubt the most successful franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL), having won five titles. Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians will look to bounce back after a disappointing 2021 campaign where they failed to qualify for the playoffs. The Rohit Sharma-led side's biggest strength lies
in their retained squad. Mumbai will put their hopes on their senior and trusted players like Rohit, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard and Suryakumar Yadav. They also draw confidence from Ishan Kishan in their squad. He was the record signing of the mega auction this year. MI also have one of the best death bowlers in Jasprit Bumrah who is not only capable of picking up wickets but more importantly, has the ability to concede the minimum number of runs when the team requires it most. The MI will miss the services of express pacer Jofra Archer, who would have been a perfect partner for Jasprit Bumrah for sharing the new ball. The franchise will also miss the services of leg-spinner Rahul Chahar. While they do have other fast bowling options such as Daniel Sams and Riley Meredith, the two lack experience in the T20 tournament. When it comes to the spinning unit, they do not have many options other than Murugan Ashwin.
