MUMBAI INDIANS GEARED UP TO CLINCH FIFTH IPL TITLE:
Mumbai Indians is the most successful franchise in the history of IPL. Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, Mumbai have won four IPL titles. They defeated CSK by one run in the final match of last year’s IPL to clinch their fourth IPL title.
Ahead of 2020 IPL, they have bought some world-class players to bolster their team such as Trent Boult, Chris Lynn among others.
Mumbai Indians recently were struck with a huge blow after Lasith Malinga decided to opt-out of IPL this year, citing personal reasons. Malinga is the highest wicket-taker in the history of IPL and his exit should prove to be a big blow for Rohit and Co. James Pattinson has been picked as a replacement for Malinga.
Mumbai Indians squad:
Rohti Sharma (C), Kieron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Quinton de Kock, Mitchell McClanaghan, Chris Lynn, Trent Boult, Sherfane Rutherford, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Ishan Kishan, Aditya Tare, Rahul Chahar, Jayant Yadav, Surya Kumar Yadav, Anukul Roy, Dhawal Kulkarni, Saurabh Tiwary, Anmolpreet Singh, Digvijay Deshmukh, Prince Balwant Rai Singh, Mohsin Khan, James Pattinson
