Defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) are all set to begin their campaign for the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Mumbai Indians, the most successful team in IPL history (four titles) looks solid for this season as well.

Being the last year’s winners, Mumbai Indians will commence the season by playing the opening match against last edition’s runner-ups Chennai Super Kings. The two teams will lock horns at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium of Abu Dhabi on September 19, 2020.

Mumbai Indians: Team Overview

As earlier mentioned, this year’s Mumbai Indians side looks quite decent on-paper and is expected to live up to their name. Moreover, MI’s think-tank with names like Sachin Tendulkar, Mahela Jayawardena, Zaheer Khan, etc. also makes them a deadly side.

Strengths

Mumbai Indians is undoubtedly one of the smartest franchises in the Indian Premier League. Their team-balance is always top-notch and looks quite similar this year as well. They bat deep with the help of all-rounders such as Kieron Pollard and the Pandya brothers. The brains of skipper Rohit Sharma is also a major plus for them.

Weaknesses

Mumbai’s batting is top class, but when it comes to their bowling attack, that’s a big concern for them. MI’s most experienced bowler, Lasith Malinga also pulled out from the tournament. This spin bowling also looks quite inexperienced, which may haunt them in conditions like that of the UAE.
