The Indian Premier League T20 is beginning from September 19th in UAE with the defending champions Mumbai Indians against the IPL favourites Chennai Super Kings. The IPL T20 was delayed due to the novel Covid-19 pandemic but is now back and the fans can’t wait to watch their favourite teams play and win the title. Even though the team had won their fourth IPL trophy last year, the squad this year does not seem to be star-studded. They are more of a combination of star players and domestic players. However, even if the team doesn’t look so strong on papers, they cannot be taken lightly. With a good team performance and excellent execution, they can crush their oppositions. So the Mumbai Indians Team is all set to hit the pitch with a bang.

MUMBAI INDIANS TEAM
According to the IPL T20 news updates, the Mumbai Indians skipper is also the team’s leading run scorer and will be looking to continue his dynamic performance in UAE as well. Opening alongside the skipper will be South Africa and Mumbai Indians team’s wicketkeeper-batsman, Quinton de Kock. They together make a great opening duo and steal some runs for the team in the beginning of their batting innings.
Following them, they have quite a decent batting line-up including Chris Lynn, and their star all-rounder Kieron Pollard and the Pandya brothers. The bowling unit is full of many key bowlers led by India’s best bowler Jasprit Bumrah. Other bowlers include Kiwi pacer Trent Boult, Mitchell McClenaghan, James Pattison, and Hardik Pandya. Mumbai Indians Players team seems to consist of more bowlers than batters, which might either be an advantage or disadvantage for the team.
MUMBAI INDIANS FIXTURES AND PREDICTION
The T20 games are now said to be more of batsmen-oriented than just overall team performance. You have to have a good batting unit if you want to win the IPL T20 tournament. This is the main concern of the Mumbai Indians team 2020, which lacks a good batting unit. Even though they do have some key batsman including the skipper himself, but they still don’t have a good top-order to cruise them through a tough bowling opposition. Also, the team lacks some spin action in their squad which can be another weakness for them. However, we must not forget the Mumbai Indians are the defending Champions and cannot be underestimated. They are pretty strong as a whole team and also one of the top teams in the tournament. According to the Cricdaddy IPL T20 news, here are the fixtures of Mumbai Indians IPL 2020:
