Mumbai Indians' injury woes ahead of IPL 2024

During the off-season, Mumbai Indians went through a huge transition. The franchise management has appointed Hardik Pandya as the new captain. Rohit Sharma has been sacked from captaincy. The decision brought polarising views. Thus, the intrigue is everywhere around how Rohit Sharma will fare under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya. Aside from that, it could prove to be a daunting challenge for Mumbai Indians and Hardik Pandya if Suryakuamr Yadav does not feature in the IPL 2024. Yadav has been a key individual for the MI squad over the last many years. If he does not cut out a fit figure then there will be problems for Mumbai Indians. Moreover, the 5-time champions have already suffered a major blow as Jason Behrendorff has pulled out due to injury.
