Mumbai Indians is the most successful franchise in the Indian Premier League. The Rohit Sharma-led franchise has won the IPL titles record 5 times- most by any team. Mumbai Indians comprise some powerful overseas players and domestic players in the squad, which helps them to keep a strong set of players in the playing XI.
In IPL 2022, a new rule can come into existence that will allow 5 overseas players in the playing XI. The demand of extending overseas players’ limit to 5 has been made to BCCI by many IPL franchises. If the rule comes into effect, every team will be able to pick 5 overseas players in the playing XI.
Currently, only 4 overseas players are allowed in a team in a match. Here we look at Mumbai Indians’ predicted playing XI is 5 overseas players are allowed in IPL.
Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing XI If 5 Overseas Players Are Allowed In IPL:
Rohit Sharma is the most successful captain in IPL so far and Mumbai Indians playing XI is incomplete without him. He should be the first pick in the playing XI of Mumbai Indians and lead the team. Rohit Sharma is the 4th highest run-scorer in IPL with 5480 runs in 202 innings.
The right-handed batsman Sharma has smashed 40 half-centuries and 1 century in the tournament so far. He is one of the best openers in international cricket and hence should also open the innings for Mumbai Indians.
