Hyderabad batsmen Ambati Rayudu and Tirumalsetti Suman along with Tamil Nadu all rounder Rajagopal Satish are among the eleven uncapped players who have been signed up by Mumbai Indians for IPL-4 commencing on April 8.
Pawan Suyal, Abu Nechim, Ali Murtaza, Sarul Kanwar, Yuzvendra Chahal, S K Yadav and Aditya Tare are the other players who have joined the franchise owned by IndiaWin Sports, a group company of Reliance Industries Ltd.
While Rayudu, Kulkarni, Satish, Tare, Suyal, Nechim and Murtaza were an integral part of last edition’s runners-up, Suman would don the Mumbai Indians’ blue for the first time, a media release said.
Kanwar, a right-arm fast bowler from Punjab, Haryana leg-spinner Chahal and Mumbai right-hand batsman Surya Kumar Yadav would be making their IPL debuts in MI colours this season.
Earlier at the IPL-4 players’ auction held in Bangalore, MI had successfully bid for India capped players Rohit Sharma and Munaf Patel, besides foreigners Andrew Symonds, Davy Jacobs, Clint McKay, James Franklin, Moises Henriques and Aiden Blizzard.
They had also retained their captain Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, Kieron Pollard and Lasith Malinga prior to the auction.
