Captain Change: Rohit Sharma lead Mumbai to all 5 titles under his captaincy. By removing him, the team has now made Hardik the captain. Under his leadership, Hardik took Gujarat Titans to the finals for 2 seasons and also made them champions once. In such a situation, it will be important to see in which direction the decision to change the captain will go.

Fast Bowlers may Get injured: Left arm fast bowler Behrendorff is out of the league due to injury, Madushanka is also injured. Thushara and Bumrah also keep getting injured. In such a situation, if workload management is not done properly then the team's bowling may become weak.

Not Much Spin Option: Right-arm leg spinner Piyush Chawla and left-arm chinaman ball Kumar Karthikeya are the two experienced spinners of Mumbai. Apart from these, Shivalik Sharma is the only spinner in the team. There are less spin options, so the team may face difficulty on spin-friendly pitches.
