Four-time champions Mumbai Indians, who are the most successful IPL team, are in the hunt of their fifth title. With the presence of skipper Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga and Hardik Pandya, MI already had a strong squad. However, the addition of Chris Lynn and Trent Boult has strengthened the team even more.
Therefore, it will not be wrong to say that Rohit Sharma and Co are the front runners to win the tournament and defend their title successfully. However, with the pitches in UAE favouring the spinners and the boundaries being on the larger side, the Men in Blue & Gold will tackle a different challenge.
