Mumbai Indians (MI) have been witnessing some rough time in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 so far as they have lost 4 matches in the tournament so far. However, MI deputy skipper, Jasprit Bumrah reckons that his team is going through a transition phase which is why the form has probably slumped for them. However, on Tuesday, the veteran South African bowler, Dale Steyn has accepted that Bumrah is a better bowler than him as he is retired now.

It has been a nightmarish start for MI in the season so far, although they are known for their slow starts. Apart from their batters’ inability to go big, the below-par performance by the bowlers has made things hard.  The Mumbai bowlers, including Jasprit Bumrah, have not been able to deliver goods so far in the tournament.

The current attack comprising leg-spinner Murugan Ashwin, Basil Thampi, and Jaydev Unadkat will have to support Bumrah, who will be keen to recreate his magic. The trio’s 12 overs will be crucial if MI’s fortunes are to change.

Coming back to Dale Steyn, je posted a picture on his Twitter account from one of his fishing sessions of him carrying a fish. One Twitter user commented on it saying, “Bumrah is better than you”. Replying to the comment, Dale Steyn wrote: “Im sure he is, I’m retired”.

Mumbai Indians will be locking horns with Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Wednesday (April 13) at the MCA stadium in Pune.
