5 players Mumbai Indians should target for IPL 2019
#2 Jon-Jon Smuts
Jon-Jon Trevor Smuts is a name which might not be very well-known in the cricketing world yet, but this could be the opportunity that the young man from South Africa needs in order to make an impact on the international stage.
Smuts is an opening batsman and a slow left-arm bowler. This will provide Mumbai Indians with something in both the batting as well as the bowling departments, which should come in handy especially on slow pitches where spinners might thrive. He has impressed in South Africa's domestic leagues on a regular basis and has shown that he is ready to don the colors for his national side.
Some cricketing fans might consider Smuts to be a risky pick, especially due to the fact that he is relatively unknown at the moment. Then again, this might be the perfect reason to select the young man.
