Mumbai Indians Loaded With Best Fast bowlers
Over the years, the Mumbai Indians bowling attack has boasted of several world-class fast bowlers with the most notable name being Lasith Malinga – the most successful bowler in IPL history.
It may have been only his first training session with the four-time T20 IPL champions but Boult’s speed and accuracy was something to get excited about in a game that is normally dominated by the batsmen.
Coach Mahela Jayawardene was certainly impressed as the team will need some fireworks from Boult after key striker bowler Lasith Malinga chose to skip the tournament.
Malinga Pulls Out of IPL 2020
However, the defending champions will be without the services of Malinga this season as he pulled out of IPL 2020 due to personal reasons.
Despite losing Malinga, Mumbai Indians’ bowling attack is well-equipped with the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Mitchell McClenaghan who have performed consistently for the side.
One of the most successful IPL team Mumbai Indians is set to face Chennai Super Kings in the opening match(according to the IPL 2020 schedule) of the IPL 2020 in UAE. Mumbai Indians seek to add one more trophy in their showcase by winning IPL 2020 title.
