Rohit Sharma

  • He was retained at Rs 15 crore during the last mega auction and is a sure-shot retention pick for Mumbai Indians.

Jasprit Bumrah

  • Arguably the best bowler in world cricket, Bumrah has been uber consistent for Mumbai over the years, with his top-notch death bowling skills making him a menace for opposition batsmen.
  • Bumrah can provide breakthroughs at any phase of the innings and is a bonafide match-winner, making him a valuable asset to build the attack around.

Quinton de Kock

  • Quinton de Kock was traded to the Mumbai Indians by RCB and has proved to be one of the most astute purchases by the franchise in recent times.
  • The South African wicket-keeper has formed a strong opening partnership with Rohit Sharma at the top of the order and is an excellent keeper, giving MI the option of being flexible with their batting order.
  • He was purchased for just Rs 2.8 crore by MI and had scored over 500 runs in the IPL 2020 in the UAE. In 2021, he struggled to replicate those numbers but remains one of the finest openers in the format.

Ishan Kishan/Suryakumar Yadav

  • Picking one among the two will be the big decision for Mumbai, with both having performed with some consistency for the franchise during their tenure, making their way into the Indian side.
