Mumbai Indians team is at 9th position after starting 40 IPL matches. Out of seven matches, the team has so far faced three wins and four losses. The team has to play its 8th match of the season against Rajasthan Royals on Sunday, 30 April. Just a few hours before this match, the franchise has taken a big decision. The franchise had already lost two bowlers in the form of Jhye Richardson and Jasprit Bumrah due to injury for the entire tournament before the season. Joffra Archer also played only two matches out of seven and his injury came to the fore again. Now the team has signed a dangerous bowler amidst all this.
According to ESPN Cricinfo, Mumbai Indians have signed England bowler Chris Jordan. Jordan went unsold in the mini auction. However, an official announcement from the franchise is still awaited. Even in this information, it has not been told as to whose replacement Jordan has been brought. Riley Meredith had already replaced Richardson and Sandeep Warrier was included in place of Jasprit Bumrah. Now there is suspense about who will replace Jordan. In such a situation, it is also a matter of concern for the fans, whether this replacement was not signed in place of Archer?
Jordan joins MI
Will have to wait to get the exact answer to this question. At present, Jordan has also joined the squad of five-time champion franchise Mumbai Indians. He was also seen training with the Mumbai players in a video posted on Twitter by Rajasthan Royals. Jordan was earlier a part of Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2022. There is no clear information about who has replaced Jordan. A team can have a maximum of eight overseas players in their squad. On Twitter someone is taking the name of Jason Behrendorff and someone is speaking Duan Yanson. Everyone is afraid that Archer might be out. Whereas Mumbai coach Boucher had said that if Jofra is available for the match against Rajasthan on Sunday, then its chances are less.
