In this article, we discuss the Mumbai Indians Team 2020. Mumbai Indians throughout the IPL have evolved as the most successful team with 4 trophy wins in 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019. Their enthusiastic fan base and massive support from the stakeholders have propelled this team to heights never before seen in franchise T20 cricket.
Mumbai have fractionally possessed a very strong squad with a beautiful mix of youth, talent, and experience- something that justifies the fact that they are the 4time reigning champions of Indian Premier League. This time as well Mumbai has packed their team with power-packed all-rounders- a recipe which has been the foundation behind the incredible success they have achieved as a team.
Following is the full list of the squad members Mumbai Indians Team 2020 have for this season:
Mumbai Indians Team 2020: Batsmen
Rohit Sharma has been a guiding light for the franchise, leading the way with his astute captaincy and flamboyant batting. He is the fulcrum around which the entire team revolves. With him in the batting department, Mumbai has acquired the services of Chris Lynn, the explosive Australian opening batsman.

To give them support, Mumbai has in their ranks the likes of Sherfane Rutherford and Suryakumar Yadav. Two Indian cricketers, talented batsmen have been picked by Mumbai in the form of Anmolpreet Singh and Mohsin Khan. It is still not sure where these players would fit in with Mumbai’s scheme of things but they are bound to get some game time.
Mumbai also has the services of the experienced Saurabh Tiwary. However, the batting does look a tad bit weak if Rohit fails to fire. These are the batsmen in Mumbai Indians Team 2020.
Mumbai has roped in the explosive South African Wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton De Kock. Undoubtedly one of the best wicket-keepers in the world today De Kock is an excellent player of both pace and spin. To give him the company would be the backup keepers in the form of Ishan Kishan and Aditya Tare.
Although Ishan is supposed to play a big role in the middle order, Tare has been kept as the backup keeper in case both Quinton and Ishan are unavailable. These are the Wicketkeepers in Mumbai Indians Team 2020.
The department where Mumbai packs a punch is the quality of the explosive all-rounders they possess. In their ranks, they have Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard, two of the most dangerous strikers of the cricket ball. To give them the company would be the talented Krunal Pandya who is a more than handy batsman and an able spinner.
Add to them the foreign acquisition of Mumbai, Nathan Coulter Nile who would be vital with both the bat and the ball in hand. Mumbai has also roped in two new and fresh faces in Prince Balwant Rai and Anukul Roy, two youngsters who come with a healthy reputation in domestic cricket and a lot of hype and excitement. These are the all-rounders in Mumbai Indians Team 2020.
The young Rahul Chahar will be leading the pack of spinners in the Mumbai set up along with the left-arm spin of Krunal Pandya. Jayant Yadav would also be in the ranks to provide the required stability in the department of spin bowling. However, Rahul with his googly’s is expected to be the preferred spinner for Mumbai in the majority of the matches. These are the spin options in Mumbai Indians Team 2020.
Mumbai Indians Team 2020: Fast Bowlers
Another department where Mumbai is an excellent prospect is the pace bowling department. In Jasprit Bumrah they have inarguably the most reliable and the best death bowler in the world. Bumrah is a proven performer and has been in exceptional form for the last 3 years. He would be the trump card for Mumbai. To give him support would be two world-class, fast bowlers in Trent Boult and James Pattinson. These bowlers form the pace bowling department in Mumbai Indians Team 2020.
Mumbai Indians would be picking the brains of two Sri Lankan legends present in the support staff of the team- Mahela Jayawardene and Lasith Malinga.
