IPL 2023: With five championships under their belt, the Mumbai Indians are the most successful and decorated team in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Their key to success over the years has been to have faith in young players and provide them with the best possible environment for them to succeed.
The team’s administration has frequently made audacious choices to include young players in the mix. They accomplished this, among others, with players like Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, and Ishan Kishan.
The Mumbai Indians, who are renowned for their trustworthy scouting network, frequently witness players make it onto the first team earlier rather than later.
The Hyderabad team took advantage of Tilak Varma’s possibilities last season, and he served as a shining example of the same. Check out these three Mumbai Indians players that might have a breakout year in the 2023 IPL.
Ramandeep Singh made his IPL debut last season, participating in five games for the five-time champions. With 45 runs scored and six wickets taken in the games he featured in last season, the Punjab all-rounder struggled to distinguish out.
But that doesn’t mean he won’t show to be a useful asset in the future. The 25-year-old will be attempting to build upon his performance from last year and make a splash on the big stage by returning to the team as a much better player.
Shams Mulani is a left-arm spinner from Mumbai who has yet to become well-known, but he is undoubtedly doing so with his performances, which are primarily in the red-ball format.
The spinner’s T20 statistics are also not too awful, with 40 wickets in 35 games at an economy rate of 6.79. The southpaw also has a respectable upside when using a bat. Although Mulani isn’t known for his power-hitting, he can still be useful lower in the lineup.
Mulani might fill the vacuum left by the absence of a player with the skill set of Krunal Pandya for the Mumbai Indians.
Nehal Wadhera was selected by Mumbai Indians at the IPL 2023 auction for a starting bid of 20 lakh. In his brief career, the Punjabi all-rounder has only participated in four first-class games, but he has performed admirably.
In that time, he has scored 370 runs, including a century and a double century. The left-handed hitter, who is 22 years old, also contributes as a bowler with some leg spin. Based on his skill set, that alone makes him a great asset to the team.
The Punjab all-rounder, who was inspired by Yuvraj Singh, may become well-known if he is able to play with the same kind of flair in both areas of his game.
