IPL 2019: Mumbai Indians Preview – Team, Fixtures, and Stats

Posted On

Mumbai Indians is one of the best team in IPL, winning the tournament 3 times. Chennai Super Kings is the only other team to have 3 title wins. The last season was not great for the franchise, as they failed to qualify for the playoffs.


Core players include Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, and Jasprit Bumrah. Sri Lankan pacer and MI veteran Lasith Malinga will make his comeback as a player this season after serving as a mentor in 2018.

Spinner Mayank Markande who recently made his international debut for team India will be another key player to watch. He was impressive during the last season picking up 15 wickets. The franchise also bagged Yuvraj Singh, who went unsold twice during the auction for INR 2 crore this year.


The problem with the side has been the inconsistent form of the players. Skipper Rohit Sharma, wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan, and Hardik Pandya had an on and off IPL 2018. Suryakumar Yadav managed to provide a good start to the team last season.

South African batsman Quinton de Kock has been in good touch in recent international tournaments and would be great for the team to see him continue in the IPL.
