Akash Ambani’s statement on the inclusion of Jofra Archer in the team
Apart from Ishan Kishan, Mumbai Indians made the highest bid on injured Jofra Archer and Tim David in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. Mumbai Indians included Ishan Kishan for Rs 15.25 crore, Tim David for Rs 8.25 crore and injured Jofra Archer for Rs 8 crore. Jofra Archer has been battling an injury for a long time and he has been away from the cricket field for the last several months. It is reported that the chances of Jofra playing in IPL 2022 are negligible. In such a situation, the bidding of Mumbai Indians on Jofra is going to shock everyone. Team’s owner Akash Ambani, while explaining the reason for the inclusion of injured English fast bowler Archer in Mumbai Indians, said,
Archer is injured today. But when he is fit, he will be a strong partner for Jasprit Bumrah. Along with this, he will strengthen our pace attack with Bumrah. At the same time, Akash also said that Archer had become the only marquee fast bowler till the second day. So we had only one option. That’s why we had already discussed his name. So that after getting fit, we will strengthen our fast bowling attack in future.
