In a crucial news development, Mumbai Indians (MI) star overseas pace bowler Jofra Archer is a doubtful starter for today’s summit clash of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The Mumbai Indians once again did not had the best of starts to their IPL 2023 campaign as they suffered a poor 8-wicket defeat at the hands of Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous game. Incidentally, Mumbai Indians have not managed to win their first game since IPL 2013.
MI vs CSK: Is Jofra Archer Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?
Ahead of the crucial game against Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians have been dealt with a big blow as their premier speedster Jofra Archer is set to miss the MI vs CSK IPL 2023 match due to a shoulder injury. The recent reports suggest that the England fast bowler is a doubtful starter for this game after his below par performance in the last match against Royal Challengers Bangalore where he went wicketless and conceded 33 runs in his four overs. Mumbai Indians are already without their premier bowler Jasprit Bumrah and now with Archer also not available for this important match, their bowling looks very much inexperienced and weak. MI are very much likely to play both left-arm pacer Jason Behrendorff and right-arm speedster Riley Meredith who came in as a replacement for the injured Jhye Richardson.
“From the Mumbai Indians camp, there is some news, Jofra Archer will miss this match with an elbow injury. This is big news because Archer is a very good pacer. He will be a handful at the Wankhede, is what we all thought. Him not playing in a big thing, a big boost to CSK,” said S Badrinath while analysing the game.
