WPL auctions 2024: Full list of players with Mumbai Indians in WPL 2024

WPL auctions 2024: The defending champions Mumbai Indians on Saturday made some smart bets in the WPL auction 2024. Mumbai Indians went in the auctions with 2.1 crores and they could add a maximum of 5 slots with this money. The team first engaged in a bidding war with Delhi Capitals for Australia’s Annabel Sutherland, who eventually went to DC for 2 crore.

In the WPL 2023, the void was visible with the team’s pace of effort and maybe that’s the reason why Mumbai Indians fought so hard for South Africa’s Shabnim Ismail. The defending champions bought her for 1.2 crore and then went silent for a while. During the auction of uncapped players, Mumbai Indians successfully got 4 high-potential players S Sajana for 15 lakh, Amandeep Kaur, Fatima Jaffer and Keerthana Balakrishnan for 10 lakh each. 

Shabnim Ismail is an interesting choice as the pacer has delivered good performances for South Africa so far this year. Shabnim wields one of the most formidable bouncers in the realm of international cricket. She holds the record for the highest number of wickets in One Day Internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) in South Africa, with 191 wickets in ODIs and 123 wickets in T20Is.

The bid for uncapped players- S Sajana for 15 lakh, Amandeep Kaur, Fatima Jaffer and Keerthana Balakrishnan for 10 lakh each is also great because these players have shown some potential in the domestic games and can turn up to be a surprise in WPL.
