Mumbai Indians, the five-time IPL champions head into the IPL 2022 auction with a purse remaining of 48 crores. The franchise retained Rohit Sharma (INR 16 crore), Jasprit Bumrah (INR 12 crore), Suryakumar Yadav (INR 8 crore), Kieron Pollard (INR 6 crore) in the retention window. Due to the strict retention rules, the side had to do away with a few key players.
With this being possibly the last IPL mega auction, Mumbai Indians need to make a new core and potentially find a replacement for Hardik Pandya who was signed by the Ahmedabad franchise. Here is a probable list of players, the franchise can look to target at the IPL 2022 mega auction.
IPL 2022 Auction: Probable List Of Players Mumbai Indians (MI) Might Target
Openers: Quinton De Kock, Evin Lewis, Colin Munro
With Rohit Sharma being a right-handed opener, one among the four above-mentioned players can be an ideal foil to the Mumbai Indians skipper. Lewis and De Kock have played for Mumbai previously. De Kock was also a crucial member of the side. Thus it is very expected that the franchise will try their best to rope in the southpaw. He also solves their quest for a top-order wicketkeeper-batsman.
