Mumbai Indians arguably have their best eleven stacked – one that won them the fifth IPL title by beating Delhi Capitals convincingly in IPL 2020 in Dubai. Mumbai Indians managed to retain their core Indian and overseas players who have been with them for the last few years and cemented their positions as match-winners. Simultaneously, the franchise has also let go of seven cricketers.
The five-time and the defending champions could possibly target some specialist pacemen as a backup option for Trent Boult, given the release of Nathan Coulter-Nile and James Pattinson. Furthermore, a spinning choice apart from Rahul Chahar would not hurt either, considering that he was a tad inconsistent in 2020. Nevertheless, the team looks settled and the one to beat again for the most part.
