Mumbai Indians Squad: Players to Watch out

#1. Rohit Sharma

The MI skipper hasn’t fired in the recent IPL tournaments but he might deliver this time as the T20 World Cup is fast approaching. Everybody knows about the capability of Sharma to take the game away from the opposition in a haste.

#2. Hardik Pandya

The all-rounder has just recovered from back injury and is 100% game ready. His training and net session videos are a treat for the MI fans and he may well convert those shots in real match situations.

#3. Jasprit Bumrah

India’s (or probably the world’s) best death bowler has been the strength of MI for a couple of seasons now and given that the T20 World Cup is not far, all Indian fans would want him to be at his best.

#4. Quinton de Kock

The South African limited-overs skipper is in scintillating form and he can really team up with MI’s top order batsmen and create magic at the top. Easily the most fluent left-handers at the moment.

#5. Kieron Pollard

The West Indian limited-overs skipper has been serving the Mumbai Indians for over a decade now and has been a terrific fielder in the deep and a finisher with the bat. You cannot keep KP out of the game as he is one of the most crucial players in MI squad 2021.


1. Which Indian lead bowler is playing for MI?

A. Jasprit Bumrah is definitely the Indian lead bowler fans are looking forward to. Apart from Boom, as he is fondly known, Hardik Pandya is a surety in the MI squad unless unfit.

2. Who is the opener of MI?

A. According to the MI team 2021 players list, the team has many openers in their squad. Rohit Sharma, Chris Lynn, Ishan Kishan, Quinton de Kock and Suryakumar Yadav are some of them. The most likely opening partner of Quinton de Kock will be Suryakumar Yadav, but if there is a spot for a foreigner, Chris Lynn will replace Yadav.

3. Who is the best bowler of Mumbai Indians?

A. The best bowler is debatable as the ‘teacher’ Lasith Malinga (leading wicket-taker in the history of the IPL) has helped his ‘pupil’ Jasprit Bumrah (probably the best death bowler in the world at the moment) become slightly better than him.

4. Who is Mumbai Indians vice captain?

A. West Indian all-rounder Kieron Pollard is the vice-captain of the Mumbai Indians. He led the side a couple times in 2019 as well as in 2020 while Sharma could not participate in the game.

5. Which is the home ground of team Mumbai Indians?

A. The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai is the home ground of team Mumbai Indians.
