MI Emirates are all set to make their debut in the International League T20. As the team name would suggest, the franchise is owned by the Ambani Family, who also own the Mumbai Indians team in the IPL. Mumbai Indians are the most successful franchise in the Indian Premier League, having won the championship in five seasons.
The team owners will hope that even the MI Emirates team achieves similar success in the International League T20. To ensure that the trend of winning championships continues, the team owners have signed some match-winners who previously represented the Mumbai Indians in the IPL. In this article now, we will look at four former Mumbai Indians stars who will play for MI Emirates in ILT20 2023.
1. Trent Boult will play for MI Emirates
New Zealand’s star fast bowler Trent Boult played two IPL seasons for the Mumbai Indians. He was a part of the squad in IPL 2020 and 2021. Boult joined the Rajasthan Royals before the 2022 season. He will be in action for the Emirates in ILT20 2023.
2. Nicholas Pooran will play for MI Emirates
Not many fans would know that Nicholas Pooran was also a part of the Mumbai Indians once. The left-handed wicket-keeper batter was a part of the team that won the 2017 edition of the Indian Premier League. Pooran will don the blue jersey in the ILT20 2023 tournament.
3. Kieron Pollard
Former Mumbai Indians captain Kieron Pollard is the skipper of the Emirates team in the International League T20. Pollard has a great experience of captaincy, having led the West Indies cricket team in the past as well.
