The Mumbai Indians resumed their losing streak in their first IPL match. They have not won their first match of the season since 2012.
On March 27, they recorded a good total of 177 runs on the board against the Delhi Capitals, thanks to Ishan Kishan’s fantastic innings of 81* off 48 balls, with skipper Rohit Sharma providing strong assistance. Tilak Varma, the teenager, made a bright start to his IPL career.
In the bowling unit, Basil Thampi and Murugan Ashwin were outstanding in their efforts to capture wickets on a regular basis, while Tymal Mills did not live up to his reputation.
However, the veteran combatants, Daniel Sams and Jasprit Bumrah were far below average, going for far too many runs and returning wicket-less.
Daniel Sams, in particular, let up 57 runs in four overs and was a major reason for the team’s loss in their first game. The team’s management may now consider replacing him for the second game of the 2022 edition.
Here are the 3 Players who can replace Daniel Sams in MI
In recent Big Bash League seasons, the speedster has been one of the top bowlers. Over the years, he has demonstrated the ability to regularly bowl at scorching speeds and frightens opposing batters.
He was recognized for his 16 wickets in the 2018/19 BBL season, which helped the Hobart Hurricanes club qualify for the playoffs.
In the 2021 season, the fast bowler appeared for the Punjab Kings, taking four wickets.
Meredith was once again impressive in the Big Bash League 2021/22, with 16 dismissals in 11 matches, ensuring the Hurricanes’ inclusion in the playoffs.
Fabian Allen, a left-arm orthodox bowler with expertise in the limited-overs format, is also a useful batsman in the lower order. He has been playing T20 cricket since 2017 when he joined the St.
Lucia Stars in the Caribbean Premier League. He has also appeared in other franchise T20 competitions such as the IPL, BPL, and PSL over the years.
Allen scored 137 runs and took nine wickets in 12 matches for the Caribbean Premier League 2021. He was instrumental in St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots winning their first CPL title, scoring 20 runs, and returning with a spell of 1/17 off four overs in the finals.
Jaydev Undakat, a left-arm fast bowler, is a veteran of the Indian Premier League. He has represented many teams over the years, including Delhi Daredevils, Rising Pune Supergiant, Rajasthan Royals, and Mumbai Indians for the 2022 edition of the competition.
He has frequently taken center stage as a result of his high-priced IPL contracts, most notably in IPL 2018 when he was the most expensive Indian pick.
Unadkat has been ordinary in the last two editions of the event, where he has been quite pricey and failed to put the brakes on the opposition. However, he has a fantastic overall record in the Indian Premier League, where he has taken 85 wickets in 60 outings.
