All Time Mumbai Indians XI
It is hard to pick an all-time Mumbai Indians XI. They have had some great players who have performed really well. Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga, Ambati Rayudu and Kieron Pollard have been an integral part of Mumbai Indians for a very long time.
However, the team has been chopped and changed quite a bit as far as the remaining slots are concerned. The team is the most successful team in IPL history and that makes picking just 11 players an extremely arduous task. Nevertheless, we have picked a team here based on the impact the players made and statistics.
Here are the best eleven players to have donned the famous Mumbai Indians jersey:
The Little Master was always ahead of his times in short formats of the game as he showed in his first innings at the top of the order in Auckland decades ago. He took a while to adapt to T20 cricket, but when he did, he made sure he scored runs with equal panache.
Tendulkar was the tournament's highest scorer in 2010 winning the Orange Cap with 618 runs at 47.53 with a strike-rate of 132.6. The next year, he was the third highest scorer with 553 runs at 42.5. One of the most prolific scorers at the top in IPL, Sachin Tendulkar played for just one team, the MI, for whom he was the Icon from start to finish, captaining them to a runners-up finish once, falling heartbreakingly close to a win against CSK.
