Ever since Rohit Sharma took over as the skipper, there has been no stopping the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The team has qualified for the final as many as five times, winning four of them. In fact, in the previous seven seasons, MI have won four times.

Even the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the three-time winner of the IPL, have been unable to stop their surge. Rohit’s men were in all sorts of trouble after managing only 149 in the grand finale against CSK. Then it was the turn of the bowlers to pull things back and help Mumbai win by a solitary run.

Lasith Malinga pinned Shardul Thakur to seal the deal. MI has been a team to beat without a shred of a doubt. Meanwhile, they aren’t invincible and can be challenged if the best of the lot comes together.

In the article, let’s take a look at the best IPL 2019 XI that can beat Mumbai Indians

It won’t be wrong in saying that David Warner has been the most consistent and dynamic batsmen the IPL has ever been a witness to. Having scored 4706 runs at an average of 43.17, bagging the Orange Cap has been neat and drink for the Australian batsman.

Warner wasn’t a part of IPL 2018 due to the ball-tampering saga, but he managed to re-stamp his authority in the previous edition. This time around for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), he ended with 692 runs in 12 matches at an average of 69.20.

The 32-year-old pummelled the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) bowling with a century. Warner played with a strike-rate of 143.86 and got eight fifties. The left-hander missed out a few games in the end owing to World Cup preparations and that effected SRH’s campaign.
