IPL: Jasprit Bumrah has been one of the pivotal reasons why Mumbai Indians clinched their fourth title. Bumrah picked up 19 wickets in 16 games. He bowled at an economy of 6.63 and a strike-rate of 19.47. The successful Mumbai Indians cricketer has now picked his favourite all-time XI. So, are there any surprises? Probably yes, he has picked Harbhajan Singh and Dinesh Karthik in his XI. Sachin, Rohit makes the list along with the Pandya brothers. Lasith Malinga, who emerged as the last over hero also found a spot. There was another surprise in Mitchell Johnson.
It is interesting to see that the core remains the same with Pollard and the Pandya brothers there. Rayudu has not been in good form, yet Bumrah has trusted the Hyderabadi batsman. Rohit Sharma and Sachin Tendulkar will open the batting, which is ideal. Mumbai is the most successful IPL franchise.
Meanwhile, Bumrah would be leaving for England soon for the upcoming World Cup. Four Mumbai players from Bumrah’s list will be representing Team India. India would be hoping that Bumrah comes good and picks up early wickets. Bumrah does have the experience of playing in England and that would come in handy for the Men in Blue.
Here’s Jasprit Bumrah’s MI all-time XI: Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell Johnson, Jasprit Bumrah.
