2 changes Mumbai Indians could make for their next game

It is a tough loss for Mumbai Indians to digest. However, it is good for them that their worst outing happened in just their second game. They would now want to look forward to bringing out their best in the next matches. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of two changes Mumbai Indians could make for their next game.

1) Romario Shepherd for Kwena Maphaka

Romario Shepherd for Kwena Maphaka is one of the changes Mumbai Indians could make for their next game. It was a forgettable start for the 17-year-old from South Africa. It appeared that he was too young and might be too raw for the highest level. He might not get further opportunities in this edition of the Indian Premier League.

Mumbai Indians could take a cue from RCB and try to adopt their strategy of stocking their batting resources in exchange for bowling options. MI can do it better because they have Shepherd, who can bowl four overs and can be extremely destructive with the bat. He is someone who can also open the bowling. Hence, he is on this list.


2) Kumar Kartikeya for Shams Mulani

Kumar Kartikeya was a success for Mumbai Indians in the last two seasons. Hence, it is a surprise that he did not get a chance in the playing XI. While Shams Mulani is a good player, he lacks the variety that might be needed at times in the IPL.

Kumar Kartikeya has a mystery element to his bowling. As a complement to Piyush Chawla, he is very good. Since he already has the experience of playing in many IPL matches, he will be a good fit for the side. Mumbai Indians could also get a pacer instead of a spinner. They have options such as Arjun Tendulkar and Akash Madhwal.
