Trent Boult Bowled Accurately & Considered Himself Lucky To Bowl 1st Over As Wickets Becoming Slower And Drier

Ahead of the 2020 IPL auction, Trent Boult who is also an excellent fielder, was traded to Mumbai Indians from Delhi Capitals.  He has 54 wickets from 43 games averaging 26.61 so far in IPL. James Pattinson replaced Lasith Malinga in Mumbai Indians squad who have reputed pacers like Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Dhawal Kulkarni, Nathan Counter-Nile and Mitchell McClenaghan already. James Pattinson picked 9 wickets in 7 games.

“New franchise, different personnel, it’s been exciting to be out there playing (in this global situation). I think it was all pretty natural stuff, pitch the ball up, was nice to get some assistance,” said Boult, who has taken 16 wickets so far this IPL.

“I’ve been lucky to get the first over so if it’s going to swing, it’s going to be upfront. The wickets are becoming a lot slower and lot drier. I think it just comes down to accuracy.”

Both of MI pacers Trent Boult (4/18) and Jasprit Bumrah (2/25) bowled devastating spells in tandem to restrict CSK to 114 for 9. CSK could have been dismissed for an even lower score, but Sam Curran’s 52 helped them to cross 100.

Ishan Kishan Was Trying To Be Positive As He Learnt Improvisation From Quinton De Kock As The Duo Remained Unbeaten

Ishan Kishan (68 off 37), opening the innings in place of an injured , and Quinton de Kock (46 off 37) overhauled the target without hiccups, scoring 116 for no loss in only 12.2 overs for a dominating win- the first-ever 10 wicket defeat for CSK in history of IPL.

“I was just trying to be positive. These type of totals are tricky. We are always busy when I’m batting with Quinny, and it’s good to bat with him because I get to learn from him, improvisation and all,” Kishan said.

The left-handed batsman said he worked on his ground shots during the off-season and was looking to be set as it wasn’t easy for new batsmen to start hitting a straightaway.

“…because it’s not easy for new batsmen to come in and start hitting. This match was really important for us because CSK is a very experienced side and it’s never an easy game against them,” he said.

MI will next face Rajasthan Royals on Sunday.
