Mumbai Indians strategy in IPL 2024: The Mumbai Indians team captained by Rohit Sharma has so far won the IPL title five times. Whenever this team enters the IPL field, it is considered a strong contender to win the title, but the team’s performance in the last two years has been very poor. Not only did the team not qualify for the playoffs, but the team’s journey ended much lower than that. After this, when the retention and release list came out this year, many major changes were made. If the team wants to return to the same track again, then in the auction to be held on 19th December of this month, it will have to buy some players who can win matches. If we look at the list of released players of Mumbai Indians, one thing is clearly visible that the team has released more bowlers, the team’s batting still looks quite strong.
Mumbai Indians released these players
The players released by Mumbai Indians include Arshad Khan, Ramandeep Singh, Hrithik Shaukeen, Raghav Goyal, Joffra Archer, Tristan Stubbs, Duane Jensen, Jhay Richardson, Riley Meredith, Chris Jordan and Sandeep Warrier. Not only this, the team has traded its star player Cameron Green to RCB, while in his place they have brought back Hardik Pandya from Gujarat Titans. This is being called the master stroke of the team. However, only when these matches take place, it will be clear how Hardik Pandya performs after coming back to his old team.
Mumbai Indians retained 17 players, eight spots vacant, about Rs 18 crore left in purse
Mumbai Indians currently have a total of 17 players, which means the team has 8 players left to complete its minimum squad and 8 slots to reach the maximum limit. In this, three places are vacant for foreign players. If we talk about the team’s purse, then Rs 17.75 crore is left. Mumbai Indians need a fast bowler who can open the bowling with Jasprit Bumrah and also take wickets in the powerplay. Also, if needed, score some runs. In such a situation, the team should definitely bet on a bowler like Pat Cummins.
Mumbai Indians can bet on these players
The base price of Pat Cummins is Rs 2 crore. The team can go after him, but if Indian fast bowlers are needed then they can also bet on Harshal Patel and Shardul Thakur. Both of them are fast bowlers and can score runs when needed. Their base price is also Rs 2 crore. But it is believed that the team will go after the foreign pacer. In such a situation, apart from Pat Cummins, the name of Josh Hazlewood is also included in the bowler whom the team will keep an eye on. Mitchell Starc can also be an option, but other teams will also bid on him, in such a situation his bid may go higher and Mumbai Indians do not even have enough money to be a part of the prize war. The hope is that in the remaining squad, the Mumbai team will try to include fast bowlers and all-rounders in its side, so that the bowling lineup of the team becomes better.
Current team of Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Dewald Brewis, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Tilak Verma, Tim David, Vishnu Vinod, Arjun Tendulkar, Shams Mulani, Nehal Wadhera, Jasprit Bumrah, Kumar Karthikeya, Piyush Chawla, Akash Madhwal, Jason Behrendorff, Romario Shepherd. .
