IPL 2024 Mumbai Indians (MI) Team: Retained, Released, Target Players And Coaching Staff: Mumbai Indians have been one of the finest teams in Indian Premier League (IPL) history, winning five titles as the squad has gelled well under India captain Rohit Sharma. The squad finished fourth in the points table during the IPL 2023 season, owing to the unavailability of India bowler Jasprit Bumrah.

Although the MI team led by Rohit Sharma performed admirably in IPL 2023, several fans thought that a stronger bowling attack may have driven them to victory. Despite playing one of the IPL 2023’s weaker bowling lineups, MI outperformed expectations and earned a playoff spot in the 16th season of the IPL. They won the eliminator against the LSG but fell short against the GT in Qualifier 2.

The Mumbai Indians (MI) are set to make substantial team changes ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season. The franchisee owners have been planning for the upcoming season and may look to recruit pacers or maybe an extra batter who can boost the ante at the top.
