Mumbai Indians (MI) is statistically the most successful team in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Rohit Sharma-led MI has the habit of winning a trophy in alternate editions, and they kept the tradition alive by clinching their fourth IPL title in 2019 after a win in 2017.
One factor which is common between MI’s first title triumph in 2013, and their fourth in 2019 is that the franchise has believed in its core members.
While most of the squad remained unchanged ahead of IPL 2020, MI added the likes of Chris Lynn, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Saurabh Tiwary to their team.
Here are the key numbers for Mumbai Indians after the IPL 2020 auction:
Squad Strength: 24
