Mumbai Indians have one of the leading line-ups. In addition, an Indian contingent within the IPL. It has helped them win five titles. The likes of Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishan Kishan, and Suryakumar Yadav form the group. However, Chopra feels not all are obvious retentions.
Chopra expresses that Mumbai Indians must retain their captain Rohit Sharma. Also, their pace spearheads Jasprit Bumrah. He feels with only two players allowed for retention before the mega auction. Sharma and Bumrah should be the frontrunners.
“The two obvious names Mumbai Indians should retain are Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah. You can also think of Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, and Kieron Pollard. However, Sharma and Bumrah should be the two biggest retentions as franchises can only keep a couple of players ahead of the mega auction,” Chopra said.

Thus, it’s beyond my understanding to see these many changes,” Chopra said.
