Mumbai Indians (MI) has been the most successful team in the history of the Indian Premier League. The side, captained by Rohit Sharma, has won as many as four titles in the last seven seasons. In the last edition, they beat the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by a solitary run in the final at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. On the other hand, CSK are the three-time IPL champions.
For the upcoming season, the franchise roped in quite a few useful names to strengthen their unit. First, they bought the dynamic Chris Lynn, who had a few excellent seasons for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
Rohit’s men also bagged the services of Trent Boult, who was a part of the Delhi Capitals (DC) in the previous season of the T20 tournament. Boult’s inclusion has bolstered their bowling unit with the likes of Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah already in it. The Mumbai team also boasts of some Caribbean flair, having Sherfane Rutherford, Fabian Allen, and the very experienced Kieron Pollard.
The upcoming edition of the IPL is scheduled to begin on March 29. All eyes will be on Rohit and Co., being the defending champions.
