Mumbai has a top-class squad. They have a good mix of prolific overseas players and exceptional Indian talent. We had the IPL 2016 auction on February 6, 2016. Mumbai retained most of their squad; they also managed to grab a few key players such as Jos Buttler during the auction. This should strengthen their side for the upcoming edition of IPL. Let us look at Mumbai’s squad for the ninth edition of IPL.

Rohit Sharma will be leading the side for the 9th edition of IPL. Corey Anderson and Jos Buttler will be key in the middle order. Kieron Pollard will likely play in the lower middle order and will be instrumental in propelling Mumbai’s score above the par score in any ground. For Kieron Pollard, no boundary is too long.

Mumbai Indians have a great balance. No wonder, their coach Ricky Ponting and their fans alike will fancy their chances of lifting the cup for the second year in a row and for the third time in the competition’s history.
