IPL 2018: 3 promising replacements for Pat Cummins
Pat Cummins has been ruled out of the IPL with a back injury. This is the second blow for the Mumbai Indians after the injury of Jason Behrendroff. Cummins has a long history of back injuries and he had a great workload in the recent Tests for Australia where he played 13 consecutive games.
Cummins is a fast bowler and also has the ability to bat down the order. Here 3 possible players who might fill in the shoes of this Australian Pacer.
NOTE:- Only bowlers who have played less than 5 T20Is have been considered on the list.
#3 Tymal Mills
Tymal Mills caught the limelight when he was bought by the Royal Challengers Bangalore for the very first time in the IPL at a whopping price of 12 crores. Despite bagging a high price tag, the English pacer failed to prove his might.
His performances for the Sussex earned him a place in the national side against India. In his 3 games played against India, he scalped 3 wickets but stunned the batsmen with his deadly pace. He has the potential to bowl at a speed of more than 90 mph. Being prone to injuries, Mills has committed to restricting himself to play the shortest form of the game.
In his 87 T20 matches played he has picked 94 wickets at a considerable economy of 7.88 runs per over. At the age of 25 years, Mills is a worthy replacement for the injured Pat Cummins.
