Mumbai Indians, which is governed or can say ruled by Nita Ambani here we are have the data based on their performance. With the beginning of the season, Mumbai Indians (MI) given a major upset as the best bowler Lasith Malinga, was ruled out. Same was in the case of the West Indies, Lendl Simmons too by playing just one match.
The team of Mumbai Indians missed the playoffs by just a win and they have to settle on the fifth place to finish last year. So with the seven wins and seven defeats, they were having an average performance. It is moreover not necessary to mention, but was definitely surprising to see them finish at the bottom half, even were having a good squad leaded by Rohit Sharma. Mumbai Indians, will be coached by the Srilankan player Mahela Jayawardene by replacing Ricky Ponting from this year, so let us see the team’s fortune after these changes in the choice of coaches.
Mumbai Indians, have a variety and experienced players which have helped them time to time. Talking about the opening being dominated by Captain Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu. Rohit Sharma himself is scoring well as a well settled batsman and has been continuously receiving support from Kieron Pollard as well as Corey Anderson. Kieron Pollard the middle order batsman doing his job in the middle keeping calm in highly tense situations.
Hardik Pandya, Jos Butler and other players are able in dealing with the multiple assigned roles to perform in the match. As we have seen the department of bowling attack is equally quite impressive with likes of Lasith Malinga, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jasprit Bumrah, Tim Southee and other players of the squad.
On considering their bowling previous year, it has came with a great shock to many spectators, seeing the whole team maintaining their bowling despite with the absence of the faster bowler Malinga’s. This time Mitchell McClenaghan who forwarded up, taking 17 wickets in just 14 innings. Jasprit Bumrah, also stands as a promising bowler, finishes the season with 15 wickets in his account. Also there are other talented and experienced bowlers like Harbhajan Singh and Tim Southee.
