Mumbai Indians

IPL 2023, Mumbai Indians: 

After injury to Jasprit Bumrah, Mumbai Indians will be hoping that Jofra Archer remains in his excellent form, which helped the record five-time champion team last season. Could leave behind the poor performance and present a strong claim for the title.

The Mumbai Indians team finished last with four wins in 14 matches in 2022. The team finished last for the first time in 15 seasons of the IPL.

Mumbai's poor performance coincided with their captain's worst season ever.

This was the first time in the history of IPL when Rohit did not score a single fifty in the season.

During this, he could score only 268 runs at an average of 19.14.

Although Jasprit Bumrah showed some shine with his skills by taking 15 wickets in 14 matches, he will not be able to play in IPL 2023 after a back surgery.

Although the team will get some strength in bowling with the arrival of Jofra Archer Jasprit Bumrah Replacement, but it will not be easy to make up for Bumrah's deficiency.

The team also lacks experienced spinners.

Veteran Piyush Chawla has been included in the team by the franchise but he played his last IPL match two years back for Chennai Super Kings.


World number one T20 International batsman Suryakumar Yadav would like to make a strong comeback after a poor ODI series against Australia.

He is also the most dependable name in the team's middle order, which includes India's Tilak Verma and South Africa's Dewald Brewis and Tristan Stubbs.

Rohit will take an aggressive approach from the very first ball in the top order with explosive Ishan Kishan.

Tim David will be expected to bat in the lower order.

The team spent Rs 17.50 crore for Cameron Green in the auction earlier this year.

He will remove the lack of Kieron Pollard in the team.

Pollard has become the batting coach of the team.

In bowling, the team will depend on Archer and left-arm fast bowler Jason Behrendorff, Behrendorff played a key role in making Perth Scorchers champions in the Big Bash League by taking 21 wickets in 14 matches.


Captain Rohit has been scoring runs for some time now but is not able to convert good starts into big innings.

The biggest challenge for the team will be to find the right combination.

It will not be easy to make up for Bumrah's absence.

Spin bowling is also the weak link of the team.


The team would like to take full advantage of its home ground.

Last season, the team had won two out of four matches here.

There is a lot of young players in the team, so their future is good.

Young talents like Brewis, Verma, Stubbs, David and even Green will have to go all out to prove themselves.


Suryakumar Yadav did not appear in rhythm in ODIs but in the T20 format, he would like to leave this behind and make a strong comeback.

When the team starts its campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Bengaluru on April 2, then Rohit and Ishan would like to take an aggressive approach from the first ball, David and Brevish will try to increase the run rate in the middle and last overs.
