Mumbai Indian Squad 2019
IPL Mumbai Indians Roster 2019
IPL 2019 Mumbai team players list is placed here. The Mumbai Indians will look to turn things around in the 2019 IPL after a lacklustre previous campaign in which the three-time champions did not even make it to the playoffs. And in a bid to do that, they have named a squad that has been retained before the auction that will take place later in December. Mumbai Indians 2019 team list is placed below.
Rohit Sharma will continue to lead the Mumbai Indians and some of the players retained are on the lines of what was expected out of them. For instance, seam bowling all-rounder Hardik Pandya, fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah and spinner Krunal Pandya were always going to be retained going into the 12th season.
Hardik was injured during the Asia Cup but he will be expected to be fit by then and will love to warm up for the 2019 World Cup that will be played immediately after the IPL.
Among others who continue to remain in the squad are wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan, middle-order bat Suryakumar Yadav and middle-order, hard-hitting all-rounder Kieron Pollard, along with the other West Indian Evin Lewis, who can be expected to open the innings as well. Quinton de Kock was traded into the squad from Kings XI Punjab for this season.
Others retained this season are leg-spinners Mayank Markande and Rahul Chahar, and the likes of Anukul Roy, Siddhesh Lad, Aditya Tare and Ben Cutting, along with seam bowlers Mitchell McClenaghan, Adam Milne and Jason Behrendorff.
The Mumbai Indians released Saurabh Tiwary, Mustafizur Rahman, Mohsin Khan, MD Nidheesh, Pradeep Sangwan, Tajinder Singh Dhillon, Sharad Lumba, JP Duminy, Pat Cummins and Akila Dananjaya from their squad and that might have been for a variety of reasons. The Aussies, for instance, haven’t been allowed to feature in the entire IPL because of the World Cup and more recently, Dananjaya’s action was reported by the umpires.
The 2017 champions have Rs. 11.15 crore available for them during the auction and can pick up a maximum of six Indian and one overseas player in their squad from their auction. IPL MI team 2019 players list is placed below.
