Luckily we got him traded from Delhi’ – Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma on ‘best bowler with new ball’

2 min read

The 13th season of the Indian Premier League is coming to an end. The final of the 2020 season of the IPL will be played between four-time winners Mumbai Indians and first-time challengers Delhi Capitals on Tuesday at the Dubai International Stadium. It will be a battle between the best two teams of the tournament. While Mumbai go for their record fifth title, Delhi are looking towards grabbing their first-ever on Friday. DC will also have revenge on their mind after the humiliating defeat they suffered at the hands of MI in the Qualifier 1. MI had scored 200/5 in their 20 overs but reduced DC to a score of 0/3 in the first two overs itself. The chief architect of the collapse was a former DC pacer. Trent Boult removed Prithvi Shaw and Ajinkya Rahane in the first over itself. Boult has been spectacular this season as he has picked up 22 wickets in the tournament to help MI reach the final of IPL 2020.

MI captain Rohit Sharma heaped praise on Boult ahead of the final. He said that MI was lucky to have got him traded from DC as he is the ‘best bowler with the new ball’.

“It’s a no brainer that (Boult) he is the best bowler with the new ball, when it comes to swinging the ball back into the batsman and luckily for us we got him traded from Delhi and he has not disappointed anyone of us,” Rohit said, reminding what Capitals are losing out on.

“Looking at the squad, the strength, the balance of this team, you know I cannot point out anything (weakness) to be honest,” the skipper said.
