Mumbai Indians (MI) have been the standout team so far in the IPL history with five titles under their belt — and they will be aiming for their third consecutive IPL trophy. No other team has won more than three titles which shows the amount of dominance the Mumbai team has had in the IPL over the years.
Their Indian core is so strong that they bank on their Indian players to come good more than their overseas recruits. They retained most of their players and availed the services of Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jimmy Neesham, Adam Milne, and Marco Jansen in the auction for their overseas contention.
IPL 2021: 5 Reasons Why Mumbai Indians (MI) Can Win The Title This Year:
5. World Class Fast Bowlers
Mumbai Indians have two world-class fast bowlers in the form of Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah who can be devastating for any top batsmen in the world. Bumrah’s ability to hit the yorkers at will and his unconventional action makes it for the batsman to go after him.
Trent Boult was outstanding last season for the Mumbai Indians picking up 25 wickets in the IPL 2020 and was the third-highest wicket-taker in the tournament. His international experience will be really handy for the Mumbai Indians as he can swing the new ball and execute his yorkers in the death.
