IPL 2022 Mega Auction Mumbai Indians (MI): The five times Indian Premier League (IPL) champions, Mumbai Indians will have the spotlight as they show up in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. The recently concluded season of the Indian Premier League didn’t turn out to be fruitful for the men in blue and gold, however, the management would be eager to fix the issues and come again raring.
The foundation of Mumbai Indians has been laid on the basis of its core. The actual strength of the franchise lies in its nucleus which predominantly consists of domestic players with a tint of overseas spices.
Mumbai has certainly lived up to the expectations to lead the team to five IPL titles in the span of nine years, since the appointment of Rohit Sharma as the skipper of the side. Sharma believes in backing his players for long and tries to bring out the best from them.
The Ambani’s owned IPL franchise will certainly look to retain most of the players from its previous squad, however, they won’t be able to do so thanks to the rules and regulations put in place by the BCCI. As many as four retentions will be procured by any franchise ahead of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction and the remaining players will be obtained right from the auction table.
The decorated franchise will have to let go of several big match-winners they had. The likes of Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Trent Boult, Quinton de Kock, James Neesham and several others might go to the auction table.
Here is the list of Player’s retained and released by Mumbai Indians (MI) ahead of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction.
