Sunil Gavaskar, an ex-Indian cricketer, has pointed out a few weaknesses of the Mumbai Indians (MI). He has said that the other sides are dominant as they have a prolific middle-over batting sensation and electrifying spinners in their squads.
Defining MI’s lacking, he said the side does not have both; professional spinners and middle-over consistency.
It is to be noted that the first most successful side of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be seen in action on 19th September. They will play against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) who are the second most successful franchise with three titles.
Sunil Gavaskar reveals the weaknesses of Mumbai Indians
“Yes, you can say that because they do not have experienced spinners that other sides have,” Sunil Gavaskar told Sports Tak.
“The other thing that can be a weakness is middle order. They will have to think who will bat at No.4 and No.5 position. If Quinton de Kock plays, then he will open with either Rohit Sharma or Suryakumar Yadav. Ishan Kishan might come in at No.4, he can also open the innings. Kieron Pollard can come in at No.5. Maybe Hardik Pandya can be promoted to No.4. But if that doesn’t happen then who will play at No.4?” added the prolific veteran batsman.
