With four Indian Premier League (IPL) titles, Mumbai Indians is the most successful team in the history of this tournament. MI will also begin the 13th edition of the IPL as the defending champions after defeating arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings in the previous year’s final match.
The Rohit Sharma-led side failed to register even a single win during the last time when IPL took place the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Now, let’s look at some of the players who can improve their record this time. Here are the top 5 Mumbai Indians players to watch out for in IPL 2020.
1. Rohit Sharma
Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma is one of the most destructive white-ball batsmen amongst the current lot. Sharma has proven himself time and again, with his batting as well as the captaincy. He will look forward to replicating that in this season too.
2. Jasprit Bumrah
One of the best fast bowlers of the current Indian team Jasprit Bumrah has been the find of the Mumbai Indians. Bumrah has played for the Mumbai-based franchise ever since his debut in this tournament and consistently won matches for them.
3. Kieron Pollard
Mumbai Indians’ destructive middle-order batsman Kieron Pollard is getting better with age like a fine wine. He has developed fantastic leadership skills as well, with his successful run at the West Indies and Trinbago Knight Riders (in CPL).
4. Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya is set to make a comeback in cricket after quite some time now. Recovered from injuries, Pandya now looks in good shape to go out in the middle and take on the bowlers for Mumbai Indians.
5. Rahul Chahar
Rahul Chahar has performed brilliantly in his IPL career so far. After making his debut for Rising Pune Supergiants, the Rajasthan-born went to join MI Paltan. With the UAE pitches assisting the spin bowlers, Chahar will play a crucial role for his side.
