Rohit Sharma has given confirmation that Trent Boult will feature in the upcoming IPL 2020 final scheduled to be played on November 10. The Kiwi pacer sustained a groin injury due to which he couldn’t bowl his full quota of overs against Delhi Capital during qualifier 1.
Mumbai Indians thrashed Delhi Capitals by a thumping win of 57-runs. MI bowlers and batsmen gave top-notched performances in their respective departments. Firstly, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumra Yadav, Quinton de Kock, and Hardik Pandya made the mockery of DC bowlers. Later on, bowlers also complemented really well. Trent Boult gave a double blow to Delhi Capitals in the very first over of the game. He dismissed Ajinkya Rahane and Prithvi Shaw without letting them open their account in the game.
The Kiwi pacer bowled supremely well against DC. Although he bowled only two overs. But that was enough to make it easy for MI to win the game. Jasprit Bumrah was also at his best, who grabbed a four-wicket haul for his team.
Rohit Sharma Happy With Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult
In the post-match conference, Rohit Sharma said that Trent Boult seems to be totally fit. And, he is expected to be available for the IPL final. The 33-year-old added that resting Boult during the game was just a precautionary measure.
“I have not seen him but he seems okay. I don’t think it’s a big problem. It is a big game coming up but we just wanted him to be okay for the next game, a three-day rest and he should be back on the park,” Rohit Sharma said at the end of the match.
MI skipper was full of praise for Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah. He asserted that they make the work for a skipper very easy during the games. It is good to watch that both the bowler coming from different countries bowling with the same plan in IPL. Also, they are complementing each other really well.
“When you have bowlers like Bumrah, it makes your life easy. And Bumrah and Boult are in top form. When they play for different countries and franchises, they have different plans. Hats off to them for buying into our plans and executing them so well,” Rohit said.
