Mumbai Indians women set the stage on fire in the WPL 2023 by winning the title. They became the first team to win the WPL. For the same reason, they were regarded as the favourites to win the WPL 2024. While they had a brilliant start to the tournament and looked good to defend the title, RCB women got the better of them in the Eliminator in a low-scoring thriller.

It was a sad moment for the players and the fans. While MI women looked good to defend the title for most parts, they had some concerns. Shabnim Ismail and Harmanpreet Kaur got injured in different capacities. Some of the players who did well in 2023 were not in form in 2024. In the bug game, MI women faltered and could not chase down the target.

Some of the players who deserved to be in the XI were not given as many chances, which was also one of the reasons for their failure of title defense.

Here are three such players who were underutilized by MI women in WPL 2024:

Chloe Tryon has been in MI since 2023. However, the South African has not gotten enough chances to play. The star player has excellent skills as a player. Tryon is a left-arm orthodox spinner who can turn the ball away from the right-handers. With the bat, she can add a few runs lower down the order. Players like her bring balance to the side. However, MI women could not make use of her well.

In both seasons, MI have found Amelia Kerr to be a better option. In the WPL 2024, MI's overseas players were Hayley Matthews, Nat Sciver-Brunt, Kerr, and Shabnim Ismail. Hence, MI women could not play Tryon in the team. Even when Ismail got injured, MI preferred Wong in the XI. MI had some problems in the middle order as some of their batters were not consistent.
