As we know mumbai is the only team who have qualified for the semifinals they should have experimented that! Indian Premier League is played to enrich indian talents, its played to exhibit and find new indian talents, then why not the teams are not ready to play with less than 4 foreign players? 4 foreign players is the maximum limit and their is no minimum limit. as you know in the last match against RCB Mclaren opened with Sachin and mclaren was useless. he didnt play an opening knock for t20, why dont they check out shikar Dawan a promising indian talent instead of a foreign player? mumbai was in a position to experiment that, still they dont do it. is there any unwritten rule that every team should pick 4 foreign players, even if they are not better than the reserve indian players?

very valid point .well done for that but you have to look at the other aspects too. first of all no one did not know who these rayudu's,tiwary's,tare's,satish's or even those ali's. mumbai indians did gave youngsters the chance. lets have a look. rayudu,tiwary,satish,tare,madan,ali,nayar,kulkarni,dhawan,there is that quickie from icl.so they pretty much gave oppurtunities for youngsters in the IPL.how many more do you want. actually i would love to see that icl guy,stuart binny play. as for the foreign players,mumbai team has this problem. bravo has been inconsistent,sanath never fired,only recently pollard is firing so even they dont know which foreign players to play. if it was a case where all malinga,pollard,bravo and mclaren were in top form,you might have got to see three foreign players but that was not the case. you should give credit to dada though. he is the only captain who made sure each and every one of the 24 players in the squad played a match.go dada

Like Indian players foreign players too will be eager to play and the 4 limit is valid and ramaining places are for Indian players only.. Instead of asking foreign players to sit down, why can't the players like Sachin, Zaheer, Harbhajan sit and give chance to younger players.. Here every match is key and winning is what matters, Mumbai Indians have experimented for the first time and they have lost the match against KKR the last match of the tournament badly.. One more thing is that frachises have paid huge amounts to buy these foreign player's and they have done that not make them sit in the bench and watch how these youngesters from India play.. There is a limit of only 4 foreign players and those places will be rotated or shufffle between foreign players.. For Delhi Dare Devils players like Dilshan, De villiers did not get much chance to play in the playing level. Bravo too did not get any chance for Mumbai Indians it is because Pollard is doing great job and Mc laren too was bowling well.. Mc Laren got the man of the match award in the match which was played against RCB.. So, there is no rules in selecting a team and there is no point in not using the 4 foreign players.
