Mumbai Indians don’t have a backup for Trent Boult: Aakash Chopra

The former Indian cricketer, Aakash Chopra infers that after Trent Boult there’s no one as a backup if we talk about the pace department. This is something Mumbai Indians’ (MI) pace attack must look out before stepping into the next edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2021. As per our thinking, this statement is made just to remind the franchise that 2021 IPL auction will start on February 18 in Chennai. And Chopra feels like five-time IPL champions won’t have a pace back up after Trent Boult. 

Apart from this till now Rohit Sharma and Co released, Nathan Coulter-Nile, James Pattinson and Mitchell McClenaghan. Furthermore, yorker king Lasith Malinga from Sri Lanka holding the title of all-time leading wicket-taker in the IPL announced his retirement. His IPL career has magnificent scorecard with 170 scalps under his name. 

Chopra in an update on Youtube said that it’s would be interesting to see what Mumbai Indians will decide in the auction after changing their entire pace attack. This started after Malinga retirement whose replacement Pattinson also got released by the franchise. After which Nathan Coulter-Nile and Mitchell McClenaghan also were released by the franchise.

Chopra, the former batsman of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) knows the pressure a team has to face without a good pace attack in IPL. He thinks MI must have to bring at least two quality pacers to strengthen their pace attack. Chopra reckons that the best choice here will be Australian deadly pacer Mitchell Starc, but also added that due to some reason Mumbai won’t be able to get him. 

As per several reports, Mumbai Indians are planning to buy Coulter-Nile in the upcoming auction. What are your thoughts regarding Mumbai’s this decision? Let us know here.
