Experience is Indispensable: Of course, the experience is irreplaceable and that is where Harbhajan could prove to be an asset in pressure situations as he has been there and done that. Mumbai has a good mix already but the addition of Harbhajan would add value in the camp. He could be the guiding force behind Rahul Chahar, Jayant Yadav guiding them through matches with his experience.

MI’s Playable Off-Spinners: Jayant Yadav is the only regular off-spinner in the side and has not played much in the season gone by. Jayant played merely two games and is unlikely to feature in the XI this year. Looking at this aspect, Harbhajan could be brought in to the side. The Punjab-born offie is also a good bowler in the death overs in a T20 game. He can hit the blockhole on a regular basis.
