In IPL 2023, Mumbai Indians will enter the league under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma along with Mark Boucher as the head coach. Kieron Pollard will play the role of batting coach whereas Shane Bond will serve as bowling coach and James Pamment will look the field department. Craig Govender is appointed as Physiotherapist and Zaheer Khan is the global head of cricket development for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023. Rahul Sanghvi will manage the team as a team manager under the ownership of Mukesh Ambani. Mumbai Indians also appointed Arunkumar Jagadeesh, one of the well-known domestic players of Karnataka, as an assistant batting coach.

In order to atone for its poor effort in the IPL 2022 season, Mumbai Indians (MI) will try their best to be on the top again in IPL 2023 and that is why the franchise has acquired Cameron Green, the second most expensive player of the IPL 2023,  for a total of Rs. 17.5 crores. Kieron Pollard will not be seen in the IPL 2023 because of his retirement from the IPL.

Mumbai Indians included Jofra Archer, Tim David, Tristan Stubbs, Jason Behrendroff, Cameron Green, Jhye Richardson, and Duan Jansen as the overseas players. The team is fully packed with talented bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Jofra Archer, Jason Behrendorff, and Jhye Richardson. MI is once more evaluating his prolonged batting difficulties in the IPL while supporting their tried-and-true skipper at the forefront, who has five trophies to his credit.

MI's bowling attack appears to be significantly more powerful now that Archer is available to pair up with Bumrah. Richardson's selection elevates him slightly above Tymal Mills from the previous campaign and will also give Green excellent backup as the all-around utility player.

All totaled, Mumbai has bought players like Jhye Richardson, seasoned spin bowler Piyush Chawla, Duan Jansen, Shams Mulani, Nehal Vadhera, and Vishnu Vinod in 2023 at their default rates. Green's acquisition makes the lineup even more potent along with Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, and Jofra Archer.

Mumbai Indians Performance in IPL Year Wise

Mumbai Indians in IPL 2008

The Mumbai-based squad had a bumpy start in the inaugural IPL season where they couldn’t reach to the Playoffs. They played 14 games in total of which they won in 7 matches and finished on the 5th position on the IPL points table. The team started the 2008 season with master blaster Sachin Tendulkar as the skipper but he had to step down due to injury and Harbhajan Singh was appointed as the captain. But Singh got involved into the infamous slapping charge for slapping Sreesanth (reportedly) from Kings XI Punjab and had to face suspension.

The 2009 IPL season was a poor year for the Mumbai Indians as they could only manage 5 wins out of 14 matches played. The team finished at the 7th position on the points table that eliminated any chance of getting into Playoffs. Although Tendulkar, Duminy and Malinga tried their best to keep opportunities open for MI yet lack of contributions from other players plummeted the team down in the points table.
