Strengths of MI IPL Squad 2018 for VIVO IPL 2018

The presence of world class batsman Rohit Sharma who has 3 double hundreds to his name in ODIs will be the main threat for opposition. The west Indian duo of Kieron Pollard and Evin Lewis will provide the pinch-hitting prowess to the team. Then comes the dynamic Pandya brothers who has grown with this team and has taken their game to a next level. They are one of the loyal players of the club who has proved their worth over time. Kieron Pollard, Ben Cutting and JP Duminy completes the all-rounders quota. The likes of death bowling specialist Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman with Pat Cummins for a lethal fast bowling attack for the team.

Weakness of MI IPL Squad 2018 for VIVO IPL 2018

The team looks weak in their spin department. With Harbhajan Singh moving to CSK the team is left with U-19 spinner Anukul Roy with Akila Dananjaya and Rahul Chahar. Since none of them are specialist spinners the team would be in difficulty when faced with spinning tracks. They would be really hoping for their young talent to click big time in IPL. Another area of concern for MI is their wicket keeping. The management did bid for Parthiv Patel late in the auction but could not get his services, that would mean young Ishan Kishan would be doing this job full time. Kishan is not a specialist wicket keeper and lacks experience for sure. How well he will fare in this new role in the team and will this role be an extension of his batsman role, this will be answered only after the IPL extravaganza starts rolling.
