The IPL 8 kicks off soon and all ten teams look good on paper. Here, IPL Pulse analyses the strengths and weaknesses of the Mumbai Indians (MI).
Rohit Sharma is a determined guy. It was the effort of this talented cricketer that Mumbai team won the IPL trophy in 2013. Rohit will once again measure its Strength which is the presence of some famous world class cricketers in the team. Lasith Malinga, Kieron Pollard, Harbhajan Singh, Corey Anderson and Aaron Finch are capable to sway the match in anyone’s favor. Moreover with Sachin Tendulkar’s presence in the dressing room as a mentor, nothing is impossible.
The major Weakness of the team is non-presence of quality bowlers apart from Malinga and Harbhajan. If these two bowlers do not click, then it will be difficult for MI to defend their total. IPL8 will also be an Opportunity for young cricketers like Parthiv Patel, Unmukt Chand, etc. to prove their capabilities on the field. The vital Threat for the team will be to play well at big clashes and make it to the semifinal this year.
