Another addition to the Mumbai squad is the third-highest wicket-taker Piyush Chawla (156), to add experience to MI paltan's spin department.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Mumbai Indians will have to reconsider their opening pair as Quinton De Kock will be unavailable for few matches, so they have to go with Chris Lynn along with Rohit Sharma.
Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult will lead the pace department, and the third fast bowler option can be either Nathan Coulter-Nile or James Neesham. Jimmy Neesham can provide depth to Mumbai Indians batting lineup. The spin department will consist of Krunal Pandya and Rahul Chahar.
