Jasprit Bumrah is perhaps the best bowler in the world with his ability to pick up wickets at any situation in the game. But he has had a quiet IPL 2020 in terms of wickets he has picked. On Monday, in the battle against RCB, the MI bowler leaked 42 runs in his four overs. Also in the super over, he couldn’t defend six runs.
This loss made MI fans miss legendary bowler Lasith Malinga. Overnight, #LasithMalinga became a trend on Twitter, with the supporters asking him to don the MI jersey once again. It is noteworthy that Malinga, the master of yorkers, is also the highest wicket-taker in the history of IPL with 170 scalps to his name.
Here are some of the tweets:
The hitting ability of the players is off the charts amazing these days…
However it’s time now for the bowlers to catch up.
Who is going to be next to dominate the Yorkers like Lasith Malinga ??
