Mumbai Indians Playing XI Team news

  • Unavailable: Jofra Archer
  • There is no way Daniel Sams is getting a game for a while after his dreadful performance against KKR where Pat Cummins slammed him for 35 runs in an over. Sams is all set to get replaced either by Riley Meredith or Fabian Allen.
  • Dewald Brevis looked promising in the short innings he played against KKR. He will continue to play at no 3 for MI.
  • Rohit Sharma’s last three IPL seasons have been nothing but disappointing. He needs to up the ante in batting and lead the team from the front.
