Mumbai Indians (MI) are all set for the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League which is scheduled to start from April 5. Mumbai did a convincing business in the IPL Auctions which took place in Bengalure on Monday. MI had the liberty to choose seven players to the side after retaining 20. They picked up Karn Sharma, who was part of the defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), for Rs 3.2 crores, which was also their highest bid.

Mumbai Indians came into the last season as the defending champions, boasting of a star studded squad which is backed by an army of blue fans.

The list of Mumbai Indians retained players by the team is placed below. However, even before the season began, they were given a major upset in the form of their best bowler Lasith Malinga, who was ruled out of the season owing to an injury. Same was the case for the West Indies international Lendl Simmons too, who was ruled out after playing just one match.

The Mumbai Indians missed the playoffs mark by just a win, as they had to settle for a fifth place finish. With seven wins and seven defeats, one can say that they have had an average performance. Needless to mention, it was definitely surprising to see them finish in the bottom half, since they had a good squad which was led by Rohit Sharma. They will however be coached by Mahela Jayawardene who replaces Ricky Ponting from next season onwards., so let’s see if that changes the team’s fortunes.
