Well Mumbai Indians haven’t got a settled opening pairs over the seasons. We have seen different opening pairs like Rohit Sharma-Lendl Simmons, Rohit-Parthiv Patel, Parthiv-Simmons and others too.
Mumbai’s middle order looks quite decent and strong lineup as Ambati Rayudu, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya to bat in the middle overs. Team franchise purchased some fantastic players in the auction that includes Sri Lankan young batsman Asela Gunarathna who smashed Man of the Match innings in first 2 twenty20s against Australia.
Mumbai Indians’ have got fire-up bowling lineup that has got more power with the addition of Mitchell Johnson and spinner Karn Sharma. Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell McCleneghan, Tim Southee and Vinay Kumar are the key fast bowling options in the Mumbai Indians roster.
