A Look at the Mumbai Indians Team of IPL 2023
MI's first IPL win came in 2013 when they defeated Chennai Super Kings in the final. They went on to win the title in 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020, making them the most successful team in the IPL. They have also won the Champions League T20 twice, in 2011 and 2013.
MI has had some of the best players in the IPL history playing for them, including Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, Lasith Malinga, Kieron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, and Hardik Pandya. Rohit Sharma has been the captain of the team since 2013 and has been instrumental in their success. He is also one of the leading run-scorers in the IPL.
MI has won several awards for its performance in the IPL, including the Fair Play award in 2010 and the Best Ground and Pitch award in 2011. They were also named the IPL team of the decade in 2019.
Let's take a look at Mumbai India's squad for the Indian Premier League's 2023 season:
Indian Cricket Team's Captain and Opening Batter, Rohit Sharma will be leading Mumbai Indians for the 11th consecutive season. He is one of the most successful captains in the history of the Indian Premier League. He is also one of the top run-getters. His experience and aggressive batting approach will be of great help to the Mumbai Indians.
Along with the skipper, Mumbai Indians boast a great batting line-up consisting of the Number 1 Batter in T-20s (as of April 2023), Surya Kumar Yadav (SKY). He will be looking to bounce back after scoring three consecutive ducks against Australia in the last ODI series at home. Ishan Kishan recently scored a double hundred in the ODI's against Sri Lanka, allowing him to join a list of elite players.
Jofra Archer will be looking to get back in form as he recently got back from an injury. The World Cup winner has been struggling with injuries for a couple of years now. MI will be playing without Jasprit Bumrah who has been ruled out for the season. Piyush Chawla's experience will come in handy for MI as he will likely be leading the spin bowling department.
Mumbai Indians have a team stacked with quality All-Rounders. Cameroon Green, Tilak Varma, and Tim David are known for their aggressive batting and high strike rate. Cameroon Green is in great form with the ball as well. Mumbai Indians will be hoping that these players stay in great form throughout the season.
