The fourteenth edition of the Indian Premier League is off to a great start. After nearly two weeks of competition, the fans have seen the weakness and strengths of their favorite franchises. This time, there is a different flavor to the game as the Royal Challengers Bangalore are now the table-toppers after three games. Well, to make it to the top four, they just have to be consistent.

Currently, the Chennai Super Kings have made a good comeback into the season after their loss against the Delhi Capitals. For them, the standout performer has been Moeen Ali. SRH is having a horrible time because they aren’t able to put up some consistent show. The same goes for the Rajasthan Royals, who are struggling because Samson looks out of touch now. 

The Punjab Kings have lost their last two games, and their batting looks a bit bleak. Maybe, they could try out Chris Gayle as their opener. Adding on, the Delhi Capitals have lost only one match. However, the Mumbai Indians have lost one game, but they are looking strong too. In the same reference, let’s take a look at-

 Team-wise weakness in the current edition of the IPL

8. Mumbai Indians: Struggle with fourth overseas option

The current Mumbai Indians squad is the strongest one in the tournament. With a plethora of talent on the bench, it is really difficult to make it to the playing eleven. The five-time champions have performed exceedingly well. However, they have one minor issue to address. 

In their current lineup, they have de Kock, Pollard, Boult as their regular members of the playing eleven. But, they are unable to find a permanent fourth overseas player so far. They have tried their hands on Marco Jansen and Adam Milne. But, both of them have not been up to the mark as Boult. 

Here comes the problem for Mumbai. This is mainly because they can not opt for Lynn at the top order. And they do not have a proper all-rounder like Pollard. But, as we have stated earlier, the team is so strong that this weakness is just a minor one.
