IPL : The 3 Prominent Overseas Players Mumbai Indians Will Never Dream Of Releasing

Indian Premier League (IPL) is the most popular and successful cricketing league across the world. It is also the number one cash-rich cricket league. It contains 8 franchises in which Mumbai Indians are regarded as the most successful franchises. Reliance Industries owns this franchise. The Mumbai-based team has won four IPL titles and has also clinched Champions Trophy twice.

This team has introduced many young talents into the IPL, and a varied pool of domestic and international players have been a part of Mumbai Indians. The former Indian skipper Rohit Sharma is the current captain of this team.

Over some time, overseas players have been playing a crucial role in the IPL with their game-changing performances and innovative techniques. Here are the three prominent players who Mumbai Indians will think twice about before releasing them:

The 3 overseas players Mumbai Indians will think of releasing

1. Quinton de Kock

Quinton de Kock former South African wicket-keeper-batsman. He made his ODI debut in 2015.he has gathered 4907 runs in 115 matches at an average of 45.00.

de Kock is an aggressive batsman and a wicket-keeper for Mumbai Indians. The left-handed batsman has scored 5067 runs in the shortest format of the game at an average of 33.8.

The Quinton de Kock was also awarded as the Cricketer of the Year at South Africa’s 2017 Annual Awards. Mumbai Indians would find it hard to replace such talent from their squad. de Kock also had an astounding IPL 2019 where he amassed 529 runs from 16 matches at an impressive average of 35.26.

2. Kieron Pollard

Pollard is a merciless batsman. The all-rounder of the West Indies cannot be ignored by Mumbai Indians. The 32-year-old, who is currently the skipper of the Windies side, can also captain Mumbai Indians in Rohit Sharma’s absence.
This right-arm pacer is also an expert in scalping wickets through his pace variations. Regarded as a specialist of the T20 format, Pollard has gathered 903 runs in 62 T20 Internationals at a strike rate of 125.4.

Pollard is a dangerous batsman who smashes monstrous sixes. In IPL 2019, the all-rounder smashed 279 runs in 16 matches at an average of 34.87. Mumbai Indians can certainly not afford to let go of such a destructive player.

3. Evin Lewis

Lewis is the opening batsman of the West Indies team. He is one of the under-rated talents of the T20 format and has broken records in it that certainly showcases his caliber. Lewis has gathered 647 runs in 23 T20 Internationals which include two centuries and four half-centuries.

This left-handed batsman has scored 100 runs in 48 balls against India in T20Is. He can play a major role in strengthening the top order of the Mumbai Indians’ batting attack. His second T20I hundred was also against India when he remained unbeaten on the score of 125.

Regarded as a successor to Chris Gayle, Lewis can provide a bolstering start to Mumbai Indians alongside Quinton de Kock. Lewis made his presence felt in IPL 2018 by smashing 382 runs in 13 games at a strike rate of 138.40. Lewis’ destructive batting can certainly be utilized more by Mumbai Indians in the near future.
