Mumbai Indians full squad IPL 2022: It was on the second day of Mega Auction 2022 when everyone got to know why Mumbai Indians were not going after world-class players and having money in the bank. The most successful franchise in the tournament took everyone by surprise after they went after Jofra Archer on day 2 of the auctions. Not a lot of people had expected that until they start bidding for him.
Rajasthan Royals were engaged in a bidding war with them but to no avail. Mumbai Indians were adamant to acquire his services and eventually bought him for a sum of 8 Crores. Considering that most of the franchises spent more than half of their money by that time, it got pretty easy for MI to get Archer for that amount. Given that Deepak Archer was bought at 14 crores and Shivam Mavi at more than 7 crores, getting Archer at 8 crores was a bargain for MI.
Mumbai Indians also saved their money for opener Ishan Kishan. He wasn’t retained before the start of the auctions but MI managed to buy him back at a whopping sum of INR 15.25 crores. To add firepower in the middle-order, Mumbai Indians also bought the services of Tim David for 8.25 crores. Besides, they picked the likes of Tymal Mills (1.5 crores) and Riley Meredith (1 crore) to further strengthen their bowling unit.
Here’s a look at the complete squad of Mumbai Indians at the end of the Mega Auction 2022:
