 IPL 2023 Mumbai Indians Mini Auction Day

Aala re, Aala re; Cameron Green Second Highest Bid of 17.5 Cr

Mumbai Indians Mini Auction: There is always pressure on the team to play at the highest level every year when they have the most IPL trophies in their trophy case. MI team and fans would both wish to forget the 2021 season after they finished fifth in the standings with just seven victories in their 14 games.

Mumbai Indians are five times the IPL champion, so they came with an intent to pick the missing players for the upcoming 2023 IPL.

The Possible Replacement of Kieron Pollard

The speed duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Jofra Archer are anticipated to get fit before the IPL 2023 season starts, which is good news for MI. Kieron Pollard, who was arguably one of the best all-around cricket players who were consistently brilliant on the field for the blue jersey, will undoubtedly be a missing factor for MI this season

It may undoubtedly be Rohit Sharma and company’s season of reconciliation, but to do so, they had to fill the void left by a significant player like Kieron Pollard, who is currently the batting coach. Cameron Green was eventually acquired by MI for the second-highest bid of 17.50 Cr yesterday afternoon.

What kind of players did Mumbai Indians buy in the IPL mini auction

  • All-rounders
  • Wicket-Keeper
  • Fast Bowlers
  • Spin Bowlers

MI Was on Hunt for Sam Curran, but failed?

Mumbai pursued Sam Curran vigorously before settling on Cameron Green. Who could have filled the shoes that Hardik Pandya once filled for them, particularly at Wankhede, which offers real bounce. With his height, the all-around player may take advantage of the circumstances.

Bought a few Indian International & Local Spin Bowlers

Last season, MI had one of the weaker spin attacks and focused on the leg-spin duo of rookie Piyush Chawla and Shams Mulani from Mumbai. Mumbai purchased Vishnu Vinod from the backups category, who can fill in for Ishan Kishan.

In search of Fast Bowlers

Unexpectedly, they haven’t purchased any local seamers or batters. Which might cause them problems finding the proper domestic-foreign balance and force them to sideline one of their star overseas players.

However, they strengthened the seam department by hiring Jhye Richardson and Duan Jansen at basic pay. The long handle can be used by either seamstress. The fact that MI has added additional seamers indicates that they view spin bowling as a supporting position.
