MI Retained Players List – Mumbai Indians have arguably been one of the most successful sides in the Indian Premier League (IPL) over the course of the past 14 seasons. After having won their maiden title in 2013, Mumbai Indians have went on to become five-time champions of this prestigious event under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.

According to confirmed reports, Mumbai Indians have nailed down their top two picks for retention ahead of the Mega Auction. The first pick is none other than the skipper himself, Rohit Sharma who has been a mainstay in the team ever since his arrival in the last decade. The second retention was Indian pacer and death over specialist, Jasprit Bumrah. Mumbai Indians still have the option to retain one more Indian player and an overseas player. Kieron Pollard and Suryakumar Yadav were the two other retentions. Hardik Pandya and Ishan Kishan missed out on a retention spot.rya
