Biggest Strengths of Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020

The biggest strength of Mumbai Indians are its fast blowers. This team has one of the best fast bowling lineup when compared to all the other franchises and these quicks are quite capable of destroying any batting side single handedly. All eyes will be on the pace duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult as this pair may give some horrific nightmares to the opponent sides in the next couple of months.

The second big strength of Mumbai Indians is its explosive batting as their opener Rohit Sharma without any doubt is currently the best batsman when it comes to white ball cricket and yes we are saying that he is better then Virat Kohli as well in the limited overs format. Also big guns down the order like Pollard and Pandya brothers can make chasing any big target for the MI side look quite easy.

Biggest Weaknesses of Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020

The biggest weakness for the Mumbai Indians team is its spin department as Rahul Chahar is the only regular spinner they have and he needs to do most of the heavy lifting alongside part timer Krunal Pandya. Pitch conditions in UAE are very much likely to favor the spinners and if this happens then Mumbai team might face a lot of problems due to the lack of quality spinners in their squad.

Winning Chances of Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020

Finally talking about the overall chances of Mumbai Indians, well we are expecting to see them reach the top four but as far as the finals are concerned it is looking quite a tough task this time around and the lack of quality spinners is the biggest issue here. Mumbai Indians have a 45% chance of reaching the finals and if their two main spinners failed then there is no hope left for them of winning the IPL 2020.
