Challenges faced by MI in IPL 2023
The Mumbai Indians main challenge this year would be their consistency in winning the matches. Last year, they had lot of challenges in terms of bowling. They have to fix their bowling attack both Pace and Spin, they have the headache of missing key players like Jofra Archer, this year they are not confident on Bumrah’s return to the tournament.
Their top order batting except SKY (Surya Kumar Yadav) was not upto the mark and lacks consistency. With ‘NO’ Kieron Pollard this year, one of their pillars so far, they have to put a lot of faith in their own talent and face the teams at both home and away.
Since other teams have a competitive playing XI and strategists, Mumbai Indians pattern and strategy have to be different and unpredictable this year which might keeps the opposition guessing, especially when you have an option of ‘Impact Player’ this year, a newly introduced rule this year.
To summarize, Mumbai Indians has their task cut out in this year’s tournament despite challenges, dealing with opposition strategies, and addressing their weak areas, more importantly, maintaining consistency in the tournament.
