Mumbai Indians (MI) in the past have been led by some legendary cricketers. Currently, even the likes of Arshad Khan, Jaydev Unadakt, and Riley Meredith are sitting out. However, brilliant performers like Sachin Tendulkar and Harbhajan Singh had been on the team. But now, the five-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions are under great pressure. Since the beginning of TATA IPL 2022, Mumbai Indians have been displaying below-average performance. Having lost all three matches of TATA IPL 2022, the team is in the ninth position on the points board. Henceforth, making it obvious that the team is missing its star power.
Mumbai Indians (MI) is looking forward to their match tomorrow against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Unable to tag along with Jasprit Bumrah, the team is missing Trent Boult or Hardik Pandya, and Nathan Coulter-Nile. Henceforth, Mumbai Indians (MI) is looking for a real frontline pacer to partner with the team.
Virender Sehwag recently says that the team has tried Daniel Sams and Tymal Mills and still got no results. In addition to that, the team looked upon Basil Thampi, an Indian pace bowler. Yet, the results have not been so whelming. Besides, there’s nobody to save Mumbai Indians’ sinking boat this season.
Welcome Jaydev Unadakt To Mumbai Indians (MI)
Virender Sehwag said, “Guys such as Sanjay Yadav, Arjun Tendulkar, Hrithik Shokeen and others aren’t of the type who can replace Basil Thampi or Daniel Sams,” According to the star player it is only and only Jaydev Unadakt who can upscale the team’s game.
Sehwag stated, ” He was sold for some 15-16 crore but even then, his next season wasn’t that great. Barring him, there aren’t too many others. Mumbai Indians (MI) doesn’t have a bowler who can bowl three overs in the Powerplay. They cannot afford to make Bumrah bowl three overs.” Therefore, as per Virender Sehwag’s review, it is clear that Mumbai Indians (MI) need to develop a strategy for the batting order to score more. On the contrary, there is no solution for their bowling situation.
Rajasthan Royals bought Jaydev Unadakt five years ago during the Indian Premier League (IPL). In a stupendous performance, Jaydev Unadakt bagged 24 wickets. Moreover, Jaydev also included a hat-trick, which was a wicket-maiden over against Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, since that season Unadakt’s record has taken a hit. In the last 13 matches, he has been able to acquire only eight wickets over the last 2 editions of the tournament. Mumbai Indians (MI) purchased Jaydev for 1.3 crores rupees at TATA IPL 2022 auctions.
Nevertheless, it would be impressive if the team would be taking Virender Sehwag’s advice. In addition to that, Jaydev’s comeback might also turn into a thrilling experience.
