It is known that Mumbai Indians, the five-time champions of the IPL, were at the bottom of the points table last season. The team, which hopes to bounce back even in this season, has already received a huge shock. It is known that Mumbai Indians star pacer Jasprit Bumrah missed the IPL due to a back injury. This is a huge shock for Mumbai. Along with this, will England pacer Jofra Archer be available for this season..? Is there..? That suspicion would haunt the fans of that team. Now the England Cricket Board has opened up to them.
Archer in 2022 IPL auction for Rs. Mumbai, who invested 8 crores and got him.. Even though they knew that he would not play that season, Mumbai paid a huge price for him. However, the team felt that even if he does not play in the 2022 season, he will play in the following seasons. But there have been reports for some time now that Archer, who is suffering from injuries, will not be available for this season as well.
According to the latest information, Archer will be available for the entire IPL-2023. A representative of the England Cricket Board (ECB) spoke to Cricbuzz about the same.. ‘Archer is ready to play the IPL-16 season. But Mumbai Indians and ECB will take care of his work load management..” he said.
With Bumrah not available for the season, huge expectations were placed on Archer. He is the key player among the fast bowlers of that team. Last year, without the right bowlers, Mumbai made heavy runs in key matches and suffered heavy losses. But now Rohit and Co. will not repeat it. feels This season, Mumbai got a better player in the form of Australian all-rounder Cameron Green. If there is another quality pacer along with Archer, it is essential for Mumbai to pull with Green in the middle overs.
