IPL 2022, Mumbai Indians News: This season of IPL has reached a very exciting turning point. There is a playoff battle between many teams. Mumbai Indians (MI) is the only team so far whose account of victory has not been opened. Mumbai has faced defeat in all the eight matches so far. Why Mumbai Indians, the most successful team in IPL history, has flopped this season? In the IPL 2022 auction, Mumbai shed money on many players who did not perform as expected. While some could not even play. We are telling you about three such players, who were very expensive for Mumbai to buy.
Mumbai had to bet heavily on these 3 players
1. In the mega auction of IPL, Mumbai Indians made a big bet on England fast bowler Jofra Archer and bought it for 8 crores. Mumbai knew that Jofra Archer was suffering from fitness issues and it was difficult to play in IPL 2022, yet the franchise bought him. This season, Mumbai has missed the most of fast bowlers.
2. Fast bowler Tymal Mills was bought in the mega auction in Mumbai for an amount of Rs 1.5 crore. Mumbai bought Mills in place of Trent Boult, but their performance so far has been disappointing. Tymal Mills has so far taken only 6 wickets in five matches. Surprisingly, Tymal Mills made his IPL debut in 2017. After this he returned to IPL after a gap of 4 years and Mumbai bet on him.
3. Mumbai had released spinner Rahul Chahar before IPL 2022 despite his good performance and bought Murugan Ashwin in his place for Rs 1.6 crore. Ashwin has not been able to do much so far and has taken only 6 wickets in 6 matches. Buying them has also cost Mumbai a lot.
