In the 16th season of the Indian Premier League, the five-time winner Mumbai Indians (MI) will try to atone for their past mistakes. Without a question, Mumbai’s campaign has been one they’ll never forget. Last year, they set the unfavorable record of losing eight straight games. One believes that their poor performance in the mega auction served as the initial catalyst for the approaching catastrophe, and the failures of the openers Sharma and Ishan only served to fan the flames.
The going has indeed gotten harder for the heavyweights, but no one will be able to suppress them given their wealth of experience and ability to spot talent that can rise to the occasion. For the first time in the tournament’s existence, they had the worst finish, and their subpar bowling performance drew a lot of criticism.
Jofra Archer was acquired by Mumbai last year, but it was clear that he wouldn’t be ready for the coming season. Tilak Varma, Dewald Brevis, and Tim David are some of the gems MI discovered, and they intend to make a lasting impression on the team. In order to replace Kieron Pollard, who had chosen to leave the IPL, Mumbai had to spend a fortune on Cameron Green, an Australian, with a winning bid of INR 17.5 crore.
