MI Strength and Weakness
Strengths of Team MI
Mumbai Indians possess a very strong squad. Their batting line-up is formidable. Having powerful hitters in the line-up, they are capable of chasing any total. Also, due to the presence of Jasprit Bumrah, they have one of the best bowlers of the format as well.
Weaknesses of Team MI
But MI is known to be a side that starts slow. In the last few years, they have tasted defeats in their first few matches and then found the rhythm in the later games. This is what hurt them last year and they had to stretch during the back end of the tournament.
