Mumbai Indians have emerged as one of the most consistent teams in the Indian Premier League. From Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Lasith Malinga and many more, they have boasted off several iconic cricketers over the years.
The Indian domestic contingent has also stepped up to the plate for the franchise. With three title victories, they are perching at the top as the team with most IPL victories. They have made the Wankhede Stadium their fortress where they have decimated oppositions with sheer disdain.
After the new retention policy, Mumbai will be looking to build a strong team for the upcoming edition of the IPL. In the article, we take a look at five cricketers, Mumbai Indians might retain.
#5 Mitchell McClenaghan
Mitchell McClenaghan has recently struggled to claim a spot in the New Zealand national team. However, that doesn’t undermine his skills and prowess as a genuine fast bowler. In the limited opportunities for the Kiwis, the left-armer has turned out to be a prolific wicket-taker.
The stupendous performances earned him a spot in the prestigious Indian Premier League. He was bagged by the Mumbai Indians in 2015 for 30 Lakhs and ever since he has been a success story for them. He immediately stamped his authority with 18 wickets for the eventual champions.
Subsequently, he was retained by the Mukesh Ambani-owned franchise for the next season. Going into the next season, McClenaghan’s prowess with the ball can again turn pivotal to Mumbai Indian’s quest for their fourth IPL title.
