Mumbai Indians look a balanced side, but the lack of openers might come back to haunt them in case Rohit and de Kock have an off season or worse get injured.

Quinton De Kock IPL Opener

The only chink in the Mumbai armor is a lack of a proper No.4 batsman.

Trent Boult, Sherfane Rutherford and Dhaval Kulkarni have been drafted into the side in the pace department. There is a lack of depth in spinning department in the squad with Rahul Chahar and Anukul Roy being the only recognized spinners in the squad. Expect MI to bid for a couple of spinners.
