Like every time, in this IPL, the team of Mumbai Indians is being considered a favorite. Mumbai Indians campaign is particularly successful every time due to batsmen and all round players. In this IPL too, Mumbai Indians have a similar mix.
However, some weakness in bowling may be seen by Mumbai Indians. Under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, Mumbai Indians have played an impact every season. This time other teams are also looking balanced so Mumbai Indians may have to face trouble.
Every year it is seen that the batting of Mumbai Indians looks weak, then the bowlers compensate for it. The bowlers put the match in the bag of Mumbai Indians even after several low scores. This is the best thing about this team. On many occasions, the bowlers’ poor performance was covered by the batsmen with their bats.
Due to this synergy, Mumbai Indians have won the title four times in IPL. This time the team of Mumbai Indians is the defending champion and it can be difficult for them to save the title. There is some reason behind this and three reasons are mentioned in this article.
Mumbai Indians may lose due to 3 reasons
1) Poor record in UAE
The last stage of the tournament was played due to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections in the UAE. Mumbai Indians suffered defeat in all their five matches there. The rest of the teams won at least two matches there. was. Kings Eleven Punjab won all the matches there but Mumbai’s record is quite poor in IPL.
2 ) Lack of expert spinner
All other teams have at least two specialist spinners but Mumbai Indians have Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandey. Mayank Markande was released by the team.
The Mumbai Indians team will have to bear the brunt of not being a great spinner. Only fast bowling cannot work because the role of spinners will be important on large grounds.
3) Lasith Malinga out in the beginning
Lasith Malinga is the main bowler of this team. Mumbai Indians could suffer a loss due to being left out of the first several matches. Jasprit Bumrah alone will be charged with fast bowling.
Trent Bolt will play for the first time and Dhawal Kulkarni has a higher economy rate. Mitchell McLaneghan’s work is good but last time he did not get a chance to play more matches. Bowling may prove to be a weak link in all these.
