In his first stint with the Mumbai Indians after being traded by Delhi Capitals final 12 months, Boult should share bulk of the accountability of the staff’s bowling assault after Sri Lankan Malinga opted out of IPL 2020 on account of private causes.
Boult stated it’s at all times a sigh of aid for any bowler to be on the opposite facet of a batting-heavy outfiit like Mumbai Indians.
“The biggest challenge so far has been trying to prepare to come to 45 degrees in the middle of the desert. I come from a very small country New Zealand which is about 7 or 8 degrees at the moment in the middle of winter,” Boult stated in a video posted by Mumbai Indians on their twitter deal with.
“Obviously, played for a couple of other franchises, but I’m very excited to be part of this Mumbai family. Speaking from experience, I have played against Mumbai a few times and that intimidation and that big challenge you will face when you come against this side has always been very intimidating. So, it’s going to be nice to be on the other end of it and be a part of such a cool group.”
Having performed some quantity of cricket within the UAE, Boult believes Mumbai Indians have the firepower in its bowling unit to outwit any opposition within the upcoming IPL.
“I’ve played a little bit of cricket here and I’m aware that the conditions can change quite drastically depending on the time of the time of the year etc,” the 31-year-old stated.
“But I’m hoping for good wickets and if good wickets are on the table, then it’s about being clear with what we are trying to do as a bowling team. And if we put the ball where we want to, then I think we got the skills to outperform any opposition.”
Boult believes there may be loads of range in Mumbai Indians bowling unit, which is an efficient signal for the staff. “I’m very excited to be part of that bowling pack. There is a lot of experience there, there is a lot of diversity I suppose and there is a group of players who have performed around the world,” the New Zealand pacer stated.
“I am sure we will back each other to do the job. It’s a big strength of the MI family I think.”
