Key Batsmen To Watch Out For :
Rohit Sharma will once again lead Mumbai Indians in the upcoming edition of the tournament. He has been the most successful captain in the history of the tournament. However, as far as his batting numbers are concerned, he hasn’t made justice to his talent. The fans would be wanting him to wreak havoc with the bat this year.
There is no denying that Suryakumar Yadav has been in the form of his life. He has been scoring runs for fun at the moment. Yadav has the ability to play shots all around the ground, which is helping him raise his stocks in T20 cricket. He will be the player to watch out for in IPL 2022.
Key All-rounders To Watch Out For:
Kieron Pollard was the overseas player retained by MI for the next edition of the tournament. He has been a vital cog for the franchise for a number of years. Over the years, Pollard has won matches for MI singlehandedly with his brutal power-hitting. The franchise would expect him to continue delivering such performances in the years to come.
In the absence of Hardik Pandya, Daniel Sams will do the role of the finisher in the MI squad this year. He showcased his batting prowess in the recent BBL tournament. Besides, he brings variety to the pace-attack with his left-arm seam fast bowling.
Key Bowlers To Watch Out For:
Jasprit Bumrah continues to be their most important bowler in the team. He was retained by the team prior to the auction and will lead the fast bowling unit in the upcoming season. Bumrah is one of the best fast bowlers in world cricket right now and will be crucial to MI’s fortune this season.
Mumbai Indians managed to acquire the services of Jofra Archer at the Mega Auction this year. Though he isn’t available for this year but will be fit to play for the next edition of the tournament. He will form a lethal fast bowling pair with Jasprit Bumrah. The duo are surely going to make waves in the next edition of the tournament.
