Mumbai Indians Strengths – Top Order Batting

The strongest link of Mumbai Indians is going to be their batting in this IPL 2024. They have great batsmen from the top order to the lower order. Top-order batsmen like Rohit Sharma, Tilak Verma, Suryakumar Yadav, and Ishan Kishan give good strength to the team.

These batsmen are capable of bringing the team back from any difficult situation. At the same time, even the biggest targets are small in front of these batsmen. Not just the top order, Mumbai Indians have all-rounders like Tim David and Hardik Pandya who are no less than a storm in the middle order. This order provides great strength to Mumbai Indians.

Mumbai Indians Weakness – Bowling Attack Cannot Take Wickets

Mumbai Indians have the best bowling attack with the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Gerald Coetzee, Jason Behrendoff, and Dilshan Madhushanka. The biggest problem will be if Bumrah has to sit out for a few matches. In such a situation, the team does not have a replacement like Bumrah.

After the departure of Jasprit Bumrah, it is not at all likely that the pace of attack of Mumbai Indians will decrease. But the spinners cannot take wickets. Piyush Chawla is not a regular bowler in the team, while Shreyas Gopal can take wickets only occasionally.

Mumbai Indians Opportunities – Gerald Coetzee Has A Golden Opportunity 

Gerald Coetzee is debuting in IPL this year. Gerald Coetzee’s good performance will help Mumbai Indians a lot and Jasprit Bumrah will get a lot of help because of him. Good performance by Gerald Coetzee will reduce the pressure on Bumrah.

Along with this, if Mumbai Indians repose confidence in him then he will remain associated with the team for a long time. At the same time, Hardik Pandya is leaving Gujarat to take over the captaincy of Mumbai Indians. There will be a huge responsibility on his shoulders.

He has to make Mumbai that winning team again. If Hardik wins the trophy for Mumbai Indians this year, he will be the first captain in IPL history to win trophies from different teams by playing for two teams as captain.

Mumbai Indians Threat – Giving Captaincy To Hardik Pandya

Senior players like Suryakumar Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah seem to be unhappy with the decision to replace Rohit Sharma and make Hardik Pandya the captain. After making Hardik the captain, the team may get divided into two groups, due to which there will not be a good atmosphere in the dressing room.
