The most unlucky teams in IPL  are Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians. They surely boast of, one the best lineups but failed to execute any plans  in the first two editions of  IPL.

Mumbai Indians


The team owned by Indian Business Tycoon Mukesh Ambani and his wife surely has an Indian flavor to it. . The very name goes as ” Mumbai Indians” ,  their shirt supports the Indian color and above all the almighty Sachin Tendulkar is their Captain. It had the worst experience in 2008, but they bounced back in 2009 with Shaun Pollock as the coach, the team almost reached the semi finals but was unlucky.

India’s most reliable pace bowler [Zaheer Khan] was bought from the then “Test team”- RCB  who has done really well. Along with him, JP Duminy, South Africa’s cricketer [was selected in the auction] led the batting of Mumbai Indians from the front. Now, with the T20 basher Kieron Pollard bought in the auction this year , and ICL Chennai team’s successful captain R Sathish , it adds more sting to their line-up

Mumbaikars will  look forward to  Tendulkar,  Duminy, Jayasuriya, Dwayne Bravo , Abhishek Nayar, Ryan McLaren and Pollard to score the runs. The bowling has a balanced attack with Zaheer, Malinga, Kulkarni, Fernando and Harbhajan. A lot will be expected from both the blade and arms of Bravo, Pollard , McLaren and Nayar.


Sachin Tendulkar: The Captain of the MI team, he should lead the team from the front and deliver what is needed. He had a good season last year and he is in splendid form in the recent past with a 200 in Gwalior, he is in high spirits.

Kieron Pollard : Nita Ambani picked him above all odds.  He has the capability to clear the ropes on every ball and even has the stop ball which he bowls slow and holds on to the batsmen.

Zaheer Khan: He is the most reliable Indian bowler and Sach will have all his hopes on him.He is back in good form after an injury. He has been really effective and surely has more probability to take a wicket or two in his opening spell.

Lasith Malinga: The Sri Lankan special action bowler did a lot last year in IPL. He is most effective in the death overs and surely will restrict the opposition.
