Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Mumbai Indians, said on Thursday that Piyush Chawla was a great buy in the players’ auction because his team needed an all-out attacking spinner. The IPL 2021 will begin on Friday, with the Mumbai Indians taking on the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) led by Virat Kohli at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Chawla has appeared in 164 IPL matches so far, taking 156 wickets at an economy rate of 7.87. He has previously played for the Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings franchises. In February 2021, he was purchased by the Mumbai Indians for Rs 2.40 crore at the players’ auction.
“I’ve known Piyush since we were both U-19s, and I know he’s a really attacking bowler, which is something we needed in our spin department.” To get him into our team, he was a good buy. He is one of the IPL’s leading wicket-takers. In a video posted on the Mumbai Indians’ official Twitter account, Rohit said, “He knows the style, he knows the opposition, he knows the players.” “I got to know that I had been selected by Mumbai Indians at the auction, so I was very pleased and excited because you want to be a part of the team that is a defending champion and that has performed so well in the IPL,” Chawla said of playing for Mumbai Indians in the upcoming edition of the IPL. As a result, it’s REALLY NICE
“I’ve seen Rahul and Jayant Yadav, and I’ve played cricket with Krunal Pandya. It is important that we share our experiences with one another. There would be a lot of stuff I’d know that they wouldn’t, and vice versa “Added he.
The Mumbai Indians’ Director of Cricket Operations, Zaheer Khan, also said that Piyush has the potential to bowl with the new ball, which is why he was selected in the auction.
“He’s been bowling with the new ball, so that was a topic of conversation when we were looking for an accomplished leg-spinner. We also have Rahul Chahar, a promising young talent, on the squad. Piyush’s experience would be beneficial to him. Piyush has played in high-pressure situations, and he will hopefully be able to guide the other spinners in the squad “Zaheer said.
