Jasprit Bumrah can fill Lasith Malinga's shoes for MI: Brett Lee

There is only a short time left to start of the IPL. Yes, IPL is starting from tomorrow ie 19th September. Before the start of the IPL, former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has said, "Jasprit Bumrah will not let Mumbai Indians miss the Sri Lankan legend Lasith Malinga in the coming season." He said, 'Malinga has withdrawn his name from the IPL this year for personal reasons.' Lee also believes that, 'Bumrah specializes in performing miracles with new and old balls and for this reason it can be said that he will not let Malinga fall short.'

Actually, he said all these things during a TV program. He said that, 'Ever since Bumrah has come into international cricket, I have become a fan of him ever since. His action is completely different and because of this he can swing the ball from both sides. He is effective with the new and old ball and certainly he will not let the Mumbai Indians miss Malinga in the Death Overs. Apart from this, Lee also said that 'Chennai Super Kings, captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, are expected to win the league this year because there is a lot of balance in this team.

Talking further, he said, 'I have chosen Chennai Super Kings as the winner this year. I think there is balance in this team and the biggest thing that can be said is that this team's spin attack is very good, which will prove to be very effective in the UAE. Let us also tell all of you that Mumbai Indians have to play their first match on Saturday i.e. September 19 against Chennai at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
