Mumbai Indians are in a sort of turmoil, halfway through the IPL 2022 season. Team changes, tweaks in the batting order, nothing seems to be working for the five-time champions at the moment. Mumbai Indians are the only side yet to register a win in the competition, having lost all of their eight games so far. They are well and truly out of the playoffs race, even if they manage to win all their remaining games in hand.
The reason behind MI’s poor outing this season has been a lack of complete team effort in every single game. Much of it boils down to their poor execution in the Mega Auction, where they let go of a couple of players, who could have added more value to the side. One can say that the franchise has overpaid for certain players, who did not have much IPL exposure in the first place. This certainly comes as a shocker, given that MI have been one of the most successful teams in executing their auction strategy.
Tim David was a big signing for the five-time champions, as Mumbai Indians bought him for a whopping sum of Rs 8.25 cr. The Singaporean batter certainly has the reputation of being a fierce striker in T20 cricket, but he has failed to click in the IPL this season. Tim David was dropped to the bench, after just a couple of games. It was also going to be a gamble in buying the batter for such a high price, given that he had very little IPL experience to his name.
Instead, there were several other candidates on offer in the Mega Auction, who would have perfectly fit into the side. In this article, we look at the three players MI could have signed instead of Tim David.
