New Delhi: April 2, 2013

Despite being one of the top-spenders and having one of the best teams, Mumbai Indians are yet to win the Indian Premier League (IPL).

After two poor seasons in the beginning, the team showed their true skills only in the third edition in 2010 when they reached the final before losing to Chennai Super Kings.

In the subsequent two seasons, they managed to reach the last four stage before, again, losing out. However, this time the Ricky Ponting factor just might do the trick. The Aussie will lead the side with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Lasith Malinga, Kieron Pollard, Harbhajan Singh and Rohit Sharma in the midst.

Malinga is also the leading wicket-taker in the tourney with 83 scalps to his name. Million dollar baby Glenn Maxwell also promises to be an interesting prospect.

New recruits: Ricky Ponting, Phillip Hughes, Glenn Maxwell, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jacob Oram.

Players to watch out for: Ricky Ponting, Sachin Tendulkar, Lasith Malinga, Rohit Sharma.

Squad: Ricky Ponting (c), Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, Rohit Sharma, Munaf Patel, Dinesh Karthik, Pragyan Ojha, Ambati Rayudu, Dhawal Kulkarni, Abu Nechim, Aditya Tare, Pawan Suyal, Surya Kumar Yadav, Sushant Marathe, Yuzvendra Chahal, Amitoze Singh, Rishi Dhawan, Jalaj Saxena, Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga, Aiden Blizzard, James Franklin, Dwayne Smith, Mitchell Johnson, Glenn Maxwell, Phillip Hughes, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jacob Oram.
