Indian Premier League is starting from 26 March. In view of this, all the teams have started tightening their gears. 5-time champion Mumbai has also started its preparations for the coming season. However, Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah will join this training camp late. Both were currently part of the team in the Test match against Sri Lanka, so both will start their training late.
