Mumbai Indians pacer Trent Boult revealed that the team isn’t happy with how the middle order has performed so far in IPL 2021. However, he added that the team’s willingness to fight till the end is the biggest strength.
“I am sure the middle-order is not too pleased with how things have gone so far. I know the guys are hungry and desperate to put in a good performance in our last game in Chennai. Not an ideal start, we would like few more runs on the board. The strength of the side is fighting till the end and the bowlers have managed to do that. It should be an exciting game against Punjab, hopefully, we will get few more runs on the board,” said Boult during a virtual press conference.
Mumbai Indians haven’t started their campaign on a good note. In 4 games, they have managed to win two games and lost two as well.
Boult further highlighted the problems a team faces while bowing second with the due factor coming in. He went on to add that he doesn’t face such an issue back at home but knows that the due isn’t something which is in anyone’s control.
“It is definitely tricky when the ball gets wet like that. The other night was the worst it has been in terms of dew. In terms of being a foreign player, it is something we are not used to in New Zealand, but it is part and parcel here, as bowlers you need to be able to execute some kind of deliveries so that is a good challenge”, he added.
Mumbai Indians will play their next game of IPL 2021 against Punjab Kings on Friday. They are currently sitting at fourth position in the points table with 2 wins in 4 games.
