Debate 1 – Whether to go with three specialist pacers or two specialist spinners?

Such is the team composition of Mumbai Indians that they will need to take a big call ahead of the game – whether to field three specialist pacers or two specialist spinners. While Jasprit Bumrah and Tymal Mills are expected to play in any case, they can field a third pacer in Jaydev Unadkar owing to the pace-friendly track at Brabourne Stadium. If they opt for the latter option, Rohit Sharma could field both Murugan Ashwin and Mayank Markande.

Debate 2 – Daniel Sams or Fabian Allen as the overseas all-rounder?

The MI think tank will also need to choose an overseas all-rounder between two options – Daniel Sams and Fabian Allen. While batting capabilities of both players are comparatively pretty similar, Sams provides the team with a pace option while Allen is a handy spinner.

Debate 3 – Selecting one of Tymal Mills and Riley Meredith to partner Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah is the ever-present X factor for Mumbai Indians when it comes to pace bowling, but the team now needs to find his perfect partner. Australian pacer Riley Meredith was a part of Punjab Kings last season, and while Englishman Tymal Mills has not featured in IPL recently, he could get a chance because of his good performances for England and for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League.

Batting line-up: It is very certain that Rohit Sharma will open the innings alongside mega-money signing Ishan Kishan. Youngster N Tilak Verma is likely to bat at three, while in Suryakumar’s absence, Anmolpreet Singh could get a chance at number four. The lower-middle order is likely to be comprised of Tim David, Kieron Pollard and Daniel Sams.

Bowling Combination: Our prediction is that Mumbai Indians will go with three specialist seamers in Tymal Mills, Jasprit Bumrah and Jaydev Unadkat. As for spin options, leggie Murugan Ashwin could be the lone frontline spinner, while Tim David can also bowl an over or two of off-spin if needed.

Mumbai Indians Full Squad: Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Ishan Kishan, Dewald Brevis, Basil Thampi, M Ashwin, Jaydev Unadkat, Mayank Markande, N Tilak Varma, Sanjay Yadav, Jofra Archer, Daniel Sams, Tymal Mills, Tim David, Riley Meredith, Mohammad Arshad Khan, Anmolpreet Singh, Ramandeep Singh, Rahul Buddhi, Hrithik Shokeen, Arjun Tendulkar, Fabian Allen, Aryan Juyal.
