Strength: The four times IPL champions have retained their top players. Rohit will continue to lead the side with other players such as Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard and Evin Lewis who have established themselves as top T20 players.
Weakness: The middle order will again be tested this season as the Saurabh Tiwary, JP Duminy, Ben Cutting, need to step up when their opportunity arises. Else the batting order can easily collapse. Note: Last season Pandya brothers saved MI from many such collapses.
