IPL 2022: The performance of Mumbai Indians, the most successful team in IPL history and a five-time winning team, has been completely opposite to expectations in IPL 2022. Even after 6 matches of the season have passed, this team led by Rohit Sharma is still waiting for their first win. The biggest reason for this poor performance of the team is their bowling attack. In such a situation, now the team MI is going to include fast bowler Dhawal Kulkarni to strengthen this side.
Dhawal Kulkarni to join MI (Mumbai Indians) later this month
According to a Times of India report, Kulkarni is expected to join the team by the end of this month. In the mega auction held before this season, Dhawal Kulkarni had kept his base price at Rs 75 lakh. But no team had shown any interest in him and after which he is seen as a commentator in the current season. Kulkarni, part of the Hindi commentary team of Star Sports, has been a part of this team of Mumbai in the past as well, as well as he has immense experience of playing in the IPL. The right-arm fast bowler has taken 86 wickets in 92 matches played in his IPL career so far. The economy rate has been 8.31. In such a situation, Kulkarni can prove to be a better option as Jasprit Bumrah’s partner.
Captain Rohit Sharma likes it a lot
Talking to the Times of India, the source said that Mumbai Indian captain Rohit Sharma himself has approached the inclusion of Dhawal Kulkarni. This right-arm medium pacer has the skills to swing the ball both ways but with control.
The source says that skipper Rohit Sharma was keen to add Kulkarni to strengthen his pace attack. The league match of IPL 2022 is being organized in 2 cities of Maharashtra, Mumbai, and Pune. In such a situation, being a local player of Mumbai, Kulkarni will have a good chance to take advantage of these conditions.
