IPL 2023 Auction: 3 All-Rounders Who Mumbai Indians Could Pick To Replace Kieron Pollard

Pollard was hailed as one of the most clutch players in the MI team and was the Player of the Match in 2013 final vs CSK. The West Indian also snapped up 69 wickets in the IPL. Here are 3 all-rounders who Mumbai Indians could pick in the IPL 2023 auction to replace Kieron Pollard:

Sam Curran

Curran was named the Player of the final vs Pakistan (3/12) and Player of the Tournament (9 of his 13 wickets came in the death overs). Should Sam Curran enter the auction, he will have franchises bidding for him fiercely, and Mumbai Indians have a handsome purse of INR 20.55 crore to use. Curran would be the perfect long-term replacement for Pollard.

Ben Stokes

Stokes brings in immense experience of playing and performing well in the most high-pressure situations - a proper clutch player - as Pollard was for Mumbai, who could eye to bag Stokes in the upcoming auction.

Sikandar Raza

Raza has never been part of the IPL. But the 36-year-old’s dream of playing in the IPL could come true next year after his terrific performances during the T20 WC. While there are a number of top-order hitters going around, there won’t be as good finishers and experienced ones in the IPL 2023 auction that Mumbai Indians can target to replace Pollard.
