Mumbai Indians: The most successful team of IPL. This team has won this tournament the most, five times. And one of the reasons behind this is understandable: almost every player has performed when given the opportunity. Also, the team has always been providing opportunities to young players. And now, with the new squad in IPL 2022, Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma is going to continue this trend.
Before the start of the IPL, in a press conference, Rohit talked to the team about releasing the match winners players. He admitted that the franchise had given opportunities to many young players in the past. And he has done well for the team. And this has helped not only the IPL but also the Indian team. Talking about his squad this time, Rohit said,
“We want to prepare him so that he can express himself on the field. Unfortunately, the rules of IPL are such that we could retain only four players. But now we have got a new team. We will support him and make sure he gives his best”.
Replying to Sobhan’s query, Ro opined that the new lot of young guns bring an exciting skill set to the team! 💙

Before the mega auction, Mumbai had let go of many of its match winners. The franchise had retained Rohit Sharma (16 crores), Jasprit Bumrah (12 crores), Suryakumar Yadav (eight crores), Kieron Pollard (six crores). After this, the team added many players to the mega auction.
The team also tried to re-sign their former players, Quinton de Kock, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, in the auction. But they failed. However, this game did not happen with Ishaan Kishan. The team showed no hesitation in spending 15.25 crores for Ishaan. After long bids, he eventually became the MI player again.
