Corey Anderson rejoins Mumbai Indians squad
Corey Anderson has rejoined the Mumbai Indians (MI) squad after his finger injury was not as bad as was first feared. He was ruled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in his fourth match while playing against Chennai Super Kings on April 17, because of a finger injury.
Anderson left for New Zealand soon after the injury and consulted the New Zealand cricket for the same. He is still under observation as he was watched by the senior coach and management of MI when they had one optional practice session at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai after the Kiwi returned on Sunday night.
Earlier, MI's Aaron Finch and Josh Hazelwood were replaced by Ben Hilfenhaus and Colin Munro. Aaron was injured during the match against Rajasthan Royals pulling his hamstring and the seamer Josh Hazlewood pulled out of the IPL to keep himself fit and fresh for the West Indies and England tour later.
New Zealander's return will boost MI side but it might be difficult for him to find his place as combination of Mitchell McGlenghan and Lasith Malinga is doing well and even opener Lendl Simmons and all-rounder Kieron Pollard playing their part. MI have won their last three matches in a row and will be looking to continue the winning streak when they face Delhi Daredevils today at home.
The 24-year-old scored 114 runs in the 4 matches he played earlier this season including 1 fifty to his name.
