The incredible T20 extravaganza took its last stride on 10th November at the iconic Dubai International Stadium. While the world continues to grapple against the pandemic, Indian Premier League stood up tall to shy away from the clouds of uncertainty from the minds of the cricket lovers. Adding to it, the fans of Mumbai Indians (MI) experienced a splendid season altogether.

The Rohit Sharma-led side went all guns blazing from the word go. Stepping into the cricketing field with the intent for triumph, the Mumbai outfit appeared to be a brute force throughout the season. Without a shade of doubt, the Blue Army deservingly landed on the podium at the end of the cash-rich tournament.

With the win against Delhi Capitals in the final, the swanky side upped their tally’s ante to five trophies. On that note, this article sheds light on the top five players MI team management must eye on ahead of the 14th edition in order to continue singing the winning song.

So, without any further ado, let’s peek into the names MI should target:

1. Colin Munro

The New Zealand based cricketer possesses an innate potential to dispatch the ball into the stands from the first ball. Flaunting a brilliant record for the national side, the left-hander has mustered 1724 runs in 65 matches. Earlier, the all-rounder plied his trade for Delhi Capitals in the 12th edition of the league.

The million-dollar brute batsman accumulated 84 runs at a decent strike rate of 120 for the Delhi camp. Colin is an undisputed pinch-hitter as far as the top order department is concerned. Soaking in the pressure, he can steady the team’s ship single-handedly.

Hence, MI must be mulling to throw a gamble in the IPL 14th auction and rope in the stalwart to add weightage to their batting order. It will be exciting for the fans to witness the utter destruction of the opposition bowling unit without any mercy by the experienced Colin Munro.
