WPL 2023: Mumbai Indians SWOT Analysis, Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats, Know All

MI WPL 2023 SWOT Analysis

With the historic Women’s Premier League just around the corner, the stage is all set for the 5 teams to unleash their potential and mettle. Mumbai Indians would be looking to extend their dominant IPL run into WPL as well.

Mumbai recently announced Harmanpreet Kaur as their captain and she has a lot of expertise as a captain. Some of the other important assets in the team of Mumbai Indians include Hayley Matthews, Pooja Vastrakar, and Amelia Kerr.

The team begins their campaign on 4th March 2023 against Gujarat Giants. The match will be played at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai and is slated to begin from 7:30 PM (IST).

In this article, we plot a SWOT analysis of the Mumbai Indians team in the upcoming WPL 2023:


Undoubtedly, one of the strong areas of Mumbai Indians in WPL 2023 will be the presence of the talismanic skipper Harmanpreet Kaur. She is a household name in women’s cricket and also recently became the first cricketer to play 150 T20Is.

She is an aggressive and swashbuckling batter and her domineering presence would certainly help the case of Mumbai. Mumbai also have Jhulan Goswami and Charlotte Edwards as their Bowling and Head Coach respectively. All in all, the team looks like a solid one with an exceptional leadership unit.


The pace bowling department lacks some tooth in the Mumbai line-up. Isabelle Wong seems to be the only out-and-out pacer and the team combination will get messed up if she is in the playing XI.

If Mumbai are defending a low total, then the pace bowling could hamper their chances. Moreover, Mumbai’s pitches are always seam-friendly.


20-year-old cricketer from Bengal Dhara Gujar and 26-year-old spinner Neelam Bisht will receive perfect opportunities to rub shoulders with some legends of the game and they would be hoping to pounce on this opportunity and prove their mettle.


Apart from the lack of pacers, another grey area that could hit Mumbai badly is the form of some top-flight cricketers. Skipper Kaur had a paltry average of 23.60 in the recently-concluded ICC T20 World Cup 2023.

Amelia Kerr too managed to muster just 113 runs and had a poor average of 28.25.
