IPL 2021: Mumbai Indians Best Possible Playing 11 [Predicted] in IPL 2021.

Mumbai Indians Best Possible Playing 11: The IPL 2021 campaign will begin shortly and as expected the Indian T20 Tournament will begin on 11th April. However, there is no clarity from the BCCI and IPL on the important dates of the league.

The defending champions will be happy with their picks in the recent IPL 2021 Auction. Mumbai Indians purchased Adam Milne, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Piyush Chawla, Arjun Tendulkar, James Neesham,  Yudhvir Charak, and Marco Jansen.

Mumbai Indians still look daunting as they retained most of their players ahead of the IPL auction. The five-times champions have experienced huge success under Rohit Sharma in recent years and will look to continue the winning run in the coming IPL.

In this article, we will look at the Mumbai Indians Best Possible Predicted Playing 11.

Mumbai Indians Best Possible Playing 11:


Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock.

Mumbai Indians will look to back Quinton de Kock to opener along with skipper Rohit Sharma. The duo had good partnerships in the past and provided many good starts to the team. Last year despite being out of form in the first few games, de Kock amassed over 500 runs. South African Quinton de Kock will also be the wicketkeeper of the team.

Top Order:

Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya.

Mumbai Indians have earned success only after backing the Indian top order in the lineup. Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya provide a strong backup to the team when openers fail to score runs. 

Surya Kumar Yadav is the most consistent batsman of Mumbai Indians. The Mumbai player made headlines after his performance in the thirteenth edition where he scored over 400 runs consistently for his side.

Ishan Kishan managed to fill the gap of Rohit Sharma after he was injured in the last season. The left-handed wicketkeeper-batsman stole the limelight in IPL 2020 where he emerged as the highest run-scorer for Mumbai Indians and produced many match winnings knocks for the side.

Hardik Pandya has been an immovable force of the side. Despite having issues with bowling after his surgery, the all-rounder put up a grand show with his seamless batting style. His daunting strike rate of 159.26 makes things easier for the five-times champion.

All Rounders:

Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard.

Krunal Pandya has made himself a better cricketer over the years by playing for Mumbai Indians. With time, Pandya improved his game and provided many reasons to skipper Rohit Sharma to keep him in the playing 11. He can bat, he can bowl and he can even take blinders in the field. 

Kieron Pollard is associated with Mumbai Indians since his debut. The West Indies all-rounder made a name for himself after he started smacking bowlers for fun. His reputation in the shortest format has grown over the years, whenever Mumbai Indians is in any trouble everyone remembers his name.


Rahul Chahar, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jasprit Bumrah, and Trent Boult.

Rahul Chahar is on the list of players who came to the Indian national side after performing in the IPL. The leg-spinner proved his worth when Rohit Sharma decided to play him 13 games out of 16 in IPL 2019. He is the lone leg-spinner in the squad and can turn many games at any moment.

Nathan Coulter-Nile, the Australian all-rounder can trouble batsmen with his pace and cheeky bouncers. Mumbai Indians had to indulge in a bidding war to get the pacer back to the squad in the IPL auction. Apart from his bowling, Coulter-Nile has the ability to smash the ball into the stands at the death overs.

Jasprit Bumrah is not just a name now, he has established himself as the most prominent bowlers in world cricket. Being one of the most consistent performers, Bumrah is in the headlines someway or the other. His accurate toe-crushers has made him even more deadly weapon for his skipper whether he is Rohit Sharma for Mumbai Indians or Virat Kohli for the Indian national team.

Trent Boult, one of the best trades done so far in the IPL history. Last year, Mumbai Indians brought the New Zealand pacer from Delhi Capitals by trade and he has done miracles for the side. Boult and Bumrah form perfect bowling partners as both the pacers have the ability to pick wickets at any point. Trent Boult had impressive success in the opening spells for Mumbai Indians last year and the pacer picked most of his wickets in the powerplays. He even featured in the highest wicket-takers list of IPL 2020
