The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season auction is set to take place in Dubai on December 19 for the first time. All ten IPL franchises will be planning their strategies for which players to keep and which to let go ahead of the auction. This will be the first time that the auction will take place outside India. The biggest league in the world has given names to young stars as well.
Ahead of the auction, the five-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians (MI) finished in third place in the last season. Rohit Sharma’s side had some bowling troubles, which caused them to change numerous bowlers during the tournament. As a result, the MI will try to strengthen its squad during the IPL 2024 auction. As a result, few players in the squad will be released.
The other teams will also look to release the players, but in the article, we will look into the likely players that MI would release in the auction. Rohit Sharma would love to win the trophy for the sixth time.
Here are 3 likely players MI could release before IPL 2024 Auctions
3. Chris Jordan
Last season, the Mumbai Indians selected the English bowling all-rounder to address their pace difficulties. Jordan, on the other hand, only managed three wickets in six games. The England pacer became a liability for the team after leaking runs at a rate of 10.77. Jordan is another player who could be released by the Mumbai Indians ahead of the IPL 2024 auction due to his poor performance last season.
Though the bowler has a lot of experience in playing the IPL he has not performed well for the teams of the biggest franchise league. The bowling all-rounder did not get a chance in England who was recently participating in the ODI World Cup 2023.
