Every team will come up with their own strengths in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). While some teams are heavily dependent on their batters, some are heavily dependent on their spinners. There are also some teams that are heavily dependent on their pacers.
Here are 3 teams that are heavily dependent on their pacers:
1. Mumbai Indians
Mumbai Indians is one of such teams that are heavily dependent on their pacers. The team invested heavily on Jofra Archer in IPL 2022 auction so that they could make him play with Jasprit Bumrah (ruled out of IPL 2023; replacement to be announced soon). Apart from Archer and Bumrah, Mumbai Indians also have Jason Behrendorff and Jhye Richardson (ruled out of IPL 2023; replacement to be announced soon). Star all-rounder Cameron Green could also bowl some impactful overs.
