IPL 2017: Mumbai Indians is the team to beat in IPL 2017. The team had failed to make it to the playoffs during the IPL 2016. The team then released eight players, yet had 20 left in their squad. It kept its core team intact. With new additions in the group, the team looks quite dangerous, especially with their domestic player bench strength. Johnson coming into the team makes the bowling lineup formidable once again. Malinga is injured, but Jasprit Bumrah’s recent performances have shown his true potential. The spin bowling attack is led by the experienced hands of Harbhajan Singh. The other two spinners are Karn Sharma and K Gowtham. Meanwhile, names like Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, Kieron Pollard, Saurabh Tiwary and Jos Buttler prove that Mumbai has always been a batting heavy team. The biggest challenge, however, will be to choose the perfect eleven for each situation, and at the same time not make too many tweaks to preserve the core strength.

Full squad:

Existing Players: Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga, Harbhajan Singh, Ambati Rayudu, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Gopal, Lendl Simmons, Vinay Kumar, Parthiv Patel, Mitchell McClenaghan, Nitish Rana, Siddhesh Lad, J Suchith, Hardik Pandya, Jos Buttler, Tim Southee, Jithesh Sharma, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Punia.
