Mumbai Indians will want to improve upon from their last years performance. They did not make it to the Play offs and finished 5. This year at the players Auction Mumbai went all out for Ben Stokes but failed to get him. How ever they managed to get some great buys in K Gowtham and Mitchell Johnson. Malinga is in great form but he will miss the first game because of International Duties. Form of Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard will be of great concern for Mumbai Indians. Will Rohit Sharma open the Innings or will Lendle Simmons open will also be interesting to see. MI have many devastating All rounders in their side which is excellent in T20 Cricket. Fitness of Key players like Rohit sharma, Hardik Pandya will also be a concern for Mumbai.

UWeWorld’s take

This is a Massive team with great Players. The only concern is Form Fitness and Consistency. If this team gets these 3 factors right then no one can stop MI from winning their third IPL. Mumbai Indians have been slow starters always but fire at crucial time. We at UWeWorld wish Mumbai Indians all the best.
