Well, Mumbai Indians wouldn’t mind his absence much though. They already got the players like Lasith Malinga and Mitchell McClenaghan to cover his absence. So far, Malinga is having a brilliant IPL, which would be a pleasing sight for the Rohit Sharma-led side.
Coming to their journey in the tournament, currently, they are placed third in the points table. They bagged seven wins in their 12 games so far losing five matches. Mumbai is just one victory away from qualifying for the playoffs.
They also got a good chance to finish in the top two. However, for that, they need to rely on the results of the Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings, who are the qualified teams so far. In the next assignment, they will host Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are also fighting hard for their place in the playoff stage.
