IPL 2023: Mumbai Indians are the most-successful franchise in the history of the India’s premier T20 competition. They have won as many as five titles under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy.
The Mumbai-based franchise have lifted the trophy a record five times, one more than their rivals, Chennai Super Kings who have won four trophies since the start of the IPL.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians have failed to showcase their true colours in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. They finished the season at the rock-bottom of the points table.
Having played 14 games, they managed to win only four games in this season. They lost the rest of the ten games in the worst manner.
However, they will be looking forward to doing well in the next season. Mumbai Indians’ team management might as well release some players before the IPL 2023 auctions.
Now, in this article, we will take a look at the list of four cricketers Mumbai Indians might release before the IPL 2023 auctions.
1. Anmolpreet Singh
Mumbai Indians franchise might release Anmolpreet Singh ahead of the upcoming auction. He got a chance to represent the franchise for a few games in the absence of Suryakumar Yadav.
Nonetheless, he didn’t make his presence count in the opportunities he got so far. As a result, the five-time IPL champions, in all likelihood, may release the Punjab cricketer.
2. Kieron Pollard
Kieron Pollard has been one of the vital cogs of the Mumbai Indians’ set-up for more than a decade. He can score runs at the rate of knots as per the situation, take crucial wickets in pressure situations.
Besides that, he can take terrific catches and can also lead the team when required. He has led Mumbai Indians in some games in Rohit Sharma’s absence in IPL 2021 season. However, Pollard didn’t do well in the last season and there are chances that he may be released.
3. Tymal Mills
Mumbai Indians purchased the services of England paceman for Rs 1.5 crore at the IPL 2022 auction. In fact, he was expected to lead the bowling attack by example.
However, he failed to deliver the goods as a bowler and then sustained an injury. He was ruled out of the tournament. Tristan Stubbs replaced him in the line-up. With Stubbs performing well, there are chances that Mills might be shown the exit door.
4. Fabian Allen
Fabian Allen is one of the players who might be released by Mumbai Indians’ franchise ahead of the IPL 2023 auctions. He only got a limited chances to play but he failed to express himself.
On top of that, he hasn’t been that impressive as an all-rounder in other domestic leagues as well. As a result, Mumbai Indians’ think-tank might release him ahead of the auction.
