It would be interesting to see which guy gets the opportunity to lead the Mumbai Indians spin department. While superstar Jasprit Bumrah and speed merchant Jofra Archer are anticipated to spearhead the pace onslaught, it would be intriguing to watch who gets the chance.
Sanjay Manjrekar has words of Praise for Rashid Khan
“Every team in the Indian Premier League needs Rashid Khan. They’re looking for their equivalent of Sunil Narine or Rashid Khan. Because of this, Zampa or Adil Rashid might be called in to locate a leg-spinner. All other things are good despite their performance in the previous season.”
Manjrekar appeared on the Star Sports program “Game Plan” and provided his view on many subjects.
The former Indian cricket player and current cricket expert think the Mumbai Indians should have maintained Rahul Chahar on their roster. The Punjab Kings purchased the former Mumbai Indians spinner for 5.25 crore rupees.
“To address your query, this is a wrist spinner. M. Ashwin is no longer employed. They have a long history of people spinning their legs for a job. Markande was in their midst at the moment. They shouldn’t have let Rahul Chahar leave, but they may go to a foreign spinner now that he’s gone. Another wrist-spinner the Mumbai Indians may be interested in is Tabraiz Shamsi, “Manjrekar remarked.
