IPL 2018 Auction: 4 Players on whom Mumbai Indians could use the Right to Match (RTM) card
The auctions will be held on the 27th and 28th of January in Bangalore.
When the retentions for the latest season of the IPL were announced, the Mumbai Indians retained three key players, skipper Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, and Jasprit Bumrah. There was speculation that Krunal Pandya may be retained in place of Jasprit Bumrah, but Mumbai followed through with the expected plan and retained their ace bowler.
Now that Mumbai has retained 3 capped Indian players, they can use Right To Match(RTM) cards on two players. It will be interesting to see which Mumbai player gets retained by RTM cards as there are a number of contenders:
#4 Kieron Pollard
Pollard has been the face of the Mumbai Indians right from the start of his IPL career. He has been an integral part of the side, and also one of the big match winners for Mumbai.
The tall West Indies player has not only won matches with his batting and bowling but also with his amazing fielding skills. The big-hitting batsman has an impressive IPL career, with 2343 runs in 123 matches at a strike of 146.52, and with the ball, he has picked up 56 wickets.
Pollard is still 30 years of age and considering his fitness level, Mumbai would not hesitate to use the RTM card and retain him for further seasons.
