Mumbai Indians have so far proven to be absolutely invincible in IPL 2020. After a sloppy start that saw then slumping down to Chennai Super Kings, they have put up a resonating show throughout the fray.
Out of 8 games, they have won 6, garnering 12 points in the process, and has slumped to two losses, one out of which came in a super over.
The performances that they have posted throughout has been nothing short of wondrous. However, these victories and such towering performances haven’t really been based on flukes. They have been built over time and the players who are now stars of Mumbai Indians climbed through the ranks right from scratch.
Suryakumar Yadav was snatched from Kolkata Knightriders and given a promotion straightaway in the batting line up by the Mumbai Indians. He started reaping handsome dividends right his outset in the Mumbai colors. In the current IPL roster, he has proven to be an invaluable asset to the men in blue. Not only has he improved his batting by leaps and bounds but he has also honed himself into a run-machine on the tricky surfaces of UAE. Despite such rippling showdowns, he still hasn’t received a call from India.
Ishan Kishan has definitely upped his game and also meliorated his chances of getting incorporated into the national side after a crackling season so far. He has rounded his game in the technical aspect and has been in scintillating form in the middle order.
Rahul Chahar has impressed a lot with his spin. He probably didn’t turn himself into a towering competitor but he has evolved into a handy spinner providing crucial breakthroughs. He is still to be capped in the national team.
The Pandya brothers were also uncapped before they were picked up by Mumbai Indians. Hardik Pandya especially has substantiated himself as one of the best all-rounders in the national side. His brother, Krunal Pandya is equally good though he failed to leave a mark in the national roster. They are now an integral part of the Mumbai line-up and has been absolutely phenomenal so far in the ongoing edition of the tournament.
Jasprit Bumrah is one of the best fast bowlers in the world at the moment and the youngster was first scouted by Mumbai Indians before he burst onto the international scene. His continuous ability to bowl yorkers grabbed the limelight and now he mixes them with the perfect bouncers and yorkers. He ranges between 145 to 150 kays regularly and unleashes those toe-crushers relentlessly.
Mumbai Indians have brought together a pool of priceless gems who were never to be spotted in the first place. They have now built an empire in the tournament and seems absolutely unbeatable. That is exactly why Mumbai is known for scouting match-winners.
