It would not be easy for Sachin Tendulkar to manage the Mumbai Indians team as they have now Symonds in their team. Earlier MI retained Harbhajan Singh and therefore he was not for sale in auction.

It is known by everyone that, Harbhajan Singh doesn’t have fruitful relations with Andrew Symonds. In tour to Australia, Andrew Symonds alleged Harbhajan Singh for racial comments and calling him Monkey.

Mumbai Indians
Owned by Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries, Mumbai Indians were the most expensive franchise in the first three seasons of the IPL. Some of the biggest names in the sport, led by the iconic Sachin Tendulkar and including Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Lasith Malinga, Dwayne Bravo, Sanath Jayasuriya and Kieron Pollard, were signed up by the heavyweight franchise. Yet, even with such high profile names donning their ranks, Mumbai Indians had a chequered run in the first three editions of IPL. The team failed to qualify for the semi-finals in the first two seasons but made amends by finishing as runners-up in IPL 2010.

MI retained Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, Kieron Pollard and Lasith Malinga heading into the IPL Player Auction 2011. Their notable signings at the auction were Rohit Sharma (USD 2.1 million), Andrew Symonds (USD 850,000) and Munaf Patel (USD 700,000). Players like Davy Jacobs, Moises Henriques, R Sathish, Dhawal Kulkarni, Ambati Rayudu, James Franklin, Clint McKay and Abu Nechim help make Mumbai a strong contender in the coming seasons.
