England left arm pacer Tymal Mills is enjoying the prospect of bowling alongside star Indian Jasprit Bumrah for Mumbai Indians in the upcoming Indian Premier League. The 29-year-old Mills, a T20 specialist and who has represented England in 12 matches and took 11 wickets with a strike rate of 22.7, was bought by the five-time champion for Rs 1.5 crore to replace Trent Boult.
“I had the chance to spend some time with Bumrah during the World Cup, so I’m looking forward to playing with him,” Mills said in a video posted by Mumbai Indians.
“I’ve wanted to come back for a long time and I’m happy to get a chance,” he added.
Mills, who previously played for Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2017, will also reunite with Mahela Jayawardene, his Southern Brave coach at the Hundred.
“I’m looking forward to meeting all my new teammates. Obviously (Mumbai Indians) is a great franchise. I haven’t played in the Wankhede before. This is my first time back since 2017,” he added to.
Mumbai Indians open their 2022 IPL campaign against Delhi Capitals on March 27.
