“Welcome to the city of heroics,” the 33-year-old while sharing the video on the picture-sharing website. Given the players MI picked in the bidding event, it seemed like their strategy was precised. With Sri Lanka paceman Lasith Malinga retired from franchise cricket, the franchise picked Milne and Coulter-Nile to bolster Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult in the fast bowling department. At the same time, leg-spinner Piyush Chawla and all-rounder Jimmy Neesham can be handy back-ups for Rahul Chahar and Kieron Pollard. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun was also picked by MI for his base price of INR 20 lakh.
