Former India Test batsman states bowling a weakness for Mumbai

After the auctions, when the teams took shape, most thought that Mumbai had the best pace attack in the tournament with the likes of Pat Cummins and Mustafizur Rahman taking place alongside Jasprit Bumrah.

However, with injury ruling Pat Cummins out of the tournament, Mumbai’s bowling looks weaker even with Bumrah and Mustafiz in the lineup. While the duo have bowled well in their first three games, the rest of the 12 overs haven’t been par, with new-sensation Mayank Markende also getting spanked in the last game against Delhi.

As a result, former Indian test opener Aakash Chopra revealed that he sees crevices in Mumbai’s bowling for the very first time – despite Fizz and Bumrah’s presence.

"For the first time, I feel like there is an issue with Mumbai's bowling. There might be Mustafizur and Bumrah, but what about the rest? Krunal Pandya not finishing his quota of four overs is something that they need to address.”

The two pacers gave away only 52 runs in their 8 overs against Delhi while the rest of the bowlers amounted to 143 runs in the rest of the 12 overs. Krunal Pandya also did well in the last game to give away only 21 runs from three overs – which means it was in the rest of the 8 overs from Akila Dhananjaya, Mayank Markende and Hardik Pandya from which the runs came.
