1) Smriti Mandhana
Being from the city, Smriti Mandhana would be Mumbai Indians No.1 Target. She is a big name in Indian Cricket and MI is known to make such signings. Smriti would also bring a lot of brand value to the franchise, something that is needed for a new league like the Women's IPL.

3) Jemimah Rodrigues
MI, in recent times, has invested in a lot of young talent. While Jemimah is already experienced on the big stage, she is relatively young and would be a fine investment for the franchise. Moreover, like Smriti, Jemimah is also from Mumbai, which gives one more reason to the owners to sign her.
