Boult Shares Update

The Kiwi pacer informed, “They (Rohit and Hardik) are both recovering well, in terms of their selection for the next game, I am not too sure. It was a bit of a precautionary move to rest them.” Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya did not feature in the first match pf the second leg of IPL 2021 and Kieron Pollard led the side. After being defeated by Chennai Super Kings in the match, Mumbai Indians are currently in the fourth spot. Regarding the skipper, Boult said in the pre-match conference, “He was sorely missed. He is right up there in terms of experience and runs achieved in this format. So, it was a big hole.”

He further opined, “But it was a good decision to make sure he is 100 per cent with the amount of cricket coming up. If he comes to the eleven tomorrow, it will be great but we want to make sure he is 100 per cent fit.”

Boult on Match

Regarding the clash against KKR, Boult said, “Every game is such a big game, every match is important now. But history is history, it is nice to have good results in our bag against KKR. They are a quality side. We would not take them lightly. Varun Chakravarthy is a quality bowler, I hope I do not face him being a number eleven, yeah I think more importantly it is about batting unit of Mumbai putting a good performance and stack up scores.”

He opined that IPL would give a perfect opportunity to all to prepare for the T20 World Cup. “You could probably not have any better build-up to a tournament like the T20 World Cup. The focus is on what’s on for the next couple of weeks, but in terms of preparation, it is very good. Conditions can change quickly but having to deal with the heat and humidity is a big challenge at this stage. It is going to be interesting to see conditions move over the course of the next few weeks,”
